Max Lucado & company put together a series of Pocket Prayers, published by Thomas Nelson, designed specifically for 6 types of roles. A Pocket Prayer for moms, dads, graduates, the military life, teachers and friends. With 40 prayers in each book, each with a corresponding Bible verse, we are brought back to focus on the One that can give us hope, direction and ultimately peace in our daily lives. As mentioned, each is tailored to a specific role, and though I don't fit into some of these roles, reading through them gives me a glimpse of what burdens this person may have. Furthermore, this insight also softens my heart as compassion and understanding grows. Since I am reviewing the series as a whole, I appreciate each of these pocket sized Pocket Prayers, because I understand that they each serve a purpose for their specific target audience. With that said, these will make great gifts. Give it as a set, for the recipient to share, or gift the specific one you're thinking of. I can also see how perfect it would be included in a gift basket.

The size of the books makes if convenient for travel as they are small enough to take anywhere. Space is provided on each page to jot down notes if you so desire.
These books are perfect gift for anyone or to keep for yourself. For instance I could see the Pocket Prayers for Moms perfect for a new or struggling mom, Prayers for Military Life would be perfect for the military family or in a care package for the soldier actively serving, Prayers for Dads would be perfect for the new dad or even as a father's day gift, with graduation upon us this would be perfect for the graduate as a gift, Prayers for Teachers is perfect for anytime because of their hard work and sacrifice or maybe the individual just starting their teaching career, lastly Prayers for Friends is also perfect for anytime or maybe if they are experiencing a difficult event in their life.

From the back cover: Some friends are closer than family. They weave their way into our lives, there to celebrate the highs and comfort us through the lows.
But its easy to forget to tell the special people in our lives how much we appreciate them
These forty simple prayers guide friends toward closer, more encouraging relationships that bring joy and serenity no matter the season of life.
Max Lucado tells us, Prayer is not a privilege of the pious, not the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. My friend, he wants to talk with you. Even now, as you read these words, he taps at the door. Open it. Welcome him in. Let the conversation begin. Pocket Prayers For Friends gives us a devotional, by day, for forty days that are divided into meaningful categories. You want to draw closer to your friends this book is a great way to help you focus and do exactly that. Each day has a Bible verse and a short prayer to re-focus our attention on God and on our friends so that we may draw closer to them. This is one book you will be returning to over and over again. It is also a great gift to give to friends and family to help them with their days. I recommend this book highly.
