    I immediately loved the look and feel of the book. It's eye-catching yet has a peaceful quality. It's well bound on beautiful paper with reminders and passages that speak to your heart, even if they're printed a bit small . :)

    Every evening I spent time in this dear book, and created images for each of the promises it shared that will grace the background of my PC & keep me focused on HIM as I work. The mix of promises and application is a wonderful daily exercise that I'll be thrilled to read again and again.

    I loved reading Praying the Promises: Anchor Your Life to Unshakable Hope and can't wait to share it with others!

    The cover of this book caught my eye. I like lighthouses, and I also like Max Lucado's writing. I figured it had to be good.

    This is not a Bible promise book full of promises from the Bible, though there are a lot of those in the book. It is more like a devotional. There are 30 chapters. Each one starts with a page that has the title of the chapter, followed by a promise from the Bible. The second page has the Unshakable Hope section, which is thoughts on promises in the Bible. The third page has a few promises, followed by a page with a prayer about promises. The chapter ends with the "I am" section, which is a statement of what we are as Christians.

    Throughout the book are pages with lighthouses and anchors in the background, making a very attractive book with its reds and whites.

    Lucado and his daughter did a great job on the book. The promises they picked out are varied and relative to today. The Unshakable Hope sections are very well written, interesting, and helpful. The prayers are a very neat way of praying the promises, something most of us probably don't do enough of....if at all. And the reminders of what we are in Christ are very encouraging.

    This book could be read several chapters at once, but I would recommend going through it a chapter a day, and using it as a 30 day devotional.

    Written by: Max Lucado and Andrea Lucado

    I have enjoyed various books from Max Lucado through the years and I thought that this sounded like a good one.

    Praying the Promises shares topics from the Bible, promises that God has made, and it helps us see how those topics affect our lives.

    Who This Book is For:

    This book is good for anyone looking to grow in their faith but it is also good for those who are struggling or those who have not come to believe in God yet.

    What I liked:

    I like how short each of the writings is. They are easy to get through.

    I like how there is a lot of supporting scripture shared in this book.

    The way that this book is written makes it interesting and easy to read.

    What I didn't like:

    There is nothing in particular that I didn't like about this book.

    My conclusion:

    Overall, I like this book and think that many others will like it, too.

    I give Praying the Promises 5 of 5 stars.

    I received this book free to review from BookLook. The opinions expressed in this review are my true thoughts and feeling regarding this book. I am disclosing this information in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.

    This is a beautiful book that inspires you to pray the promises of God over and in your life. The book focuses on a specific promise from a foundational scripture and then it gives you hope about the promise followed by more scriptures that help you understand that promise. Next there is a prayer to prayer the promise and scripture over yourself and an "I Am" declaration to keep you going. This is a beautiful book inside and out. It helps you to anchor your life in hope and believe the promises of God over your life. Great for encouragement and motivation on a daily basis. Highly recommend it!

    At first glance, I thought this would be a nice book to give as a gift because of how pretty it is; however, once I opened it and started reading, I realized I like this book so much that I am going to keep it and re-read it often. It is filled with encouraging promises and Bible verses. It's not the "name it, claim it" type of promises that Christians have become wary of either (As I understand it, the "name it, claim it" philosophy is based in the attitude that God "has to" do something, and it is also connected with the false thinking that God's blessing is always shown in health and wealth). Instead, this book is filled with real promises for believers that we can pray in agreement with, such as "you will know God," "God will guide you," "your prayers have power," and "the Holy Spirit empowers you." The book itself is visually beautiful, and the chapters are short enough that they could easily be read as a daily devotional. Many Bible verses are referenced in each section, which I liked. This book could easily be a starting point for a lot of Bible Journaling.

    I was sent this book in return for an honest review at www.biblejournalingjourney.com.
