How would life be different if we could think, see, and do all things in light of the person and work of Jesus? With this inspiring collection of 365 Scripture-centered prayers, Scotty Smith helps readers pray the Scriptures through the lens of the gospel, mining the resources of God's grace and applying them in every season of life. He frees readers to abandon any posing or pretending in favor of an honest, no-spin relationship with a God who claims them as his own.
Each day includes a Scripture reference and an inspirational original prayer, born from both moments of great faith and moments of crisis. Like a modern-day book of Psalms, Everyday Prayers is a year's worth of growing in grace that readers will lean on year after year.

"Knowing Scotty has been one of God's greatest gifts of grace. Being able to 'boldly approach our Father's throne' with this friend every morning through these prayers has been a treasure. We believe these prayers will prove to be some of the richest moments of your day." -Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman
"Scotty's prayers blast my heart every day with the good news and radical implications of Jesus' love for us. Whether Scotty is leading us to pray about the struggles in our hearts, God's work in the world, the beauty of creation, or the taste of good food, Jesus is the focus and hero of all these prayers." -Michael W. Smith
