- great addition to morning devotions by Mark on 9/15/2016
As is the case with any daily devotional or prayer book, I have not read this entire book, but have used it daily for the last couple of weeks.
And as one would gather by the title, this is a small book that will fit in pockets.... depending on the size of the pocket. The book itself is made of imitation leather and has a removable cardboard half jacket.
Each page has a prayer for the day on a specific subject or need, along with a verse or two of Scripture to go along with it. The exceptions are the days I assume are meant for the week-end where two prayers appear on the same page.
There is an index of the prayers by subject at the back of the book, and I personally feel it would be better to go by the index instead of reading through the book day by day in order of the prayers. There were a couple of mornings when the prayer didn't apply to anything I was going through or dealing with at that time, whereas looking in the index would make it easier to find prayers I do need.
The prayers themselves are well written and said what I would want to say. I like the book and plan on keeping it nearby for each day, I found it a good addition to my own prayers I pray to start the day.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
- Perfect kickstart to your prayer time by Emilie on 9/15/2016
"Prayer is a privilege." Dave Veerman, Pocket Prayers
I love the reminder from the introduction of this handy little book. It is a privilege to come to the Lord in prayer, though I admit that sometimes I forget that. Sometimes I roll out of bed without a thought to the fact that I woke up at all.
365 Pocket Morning Prayers is a wonderful collection of prayers and scripture, one for each day of the year--even though they are not marked by date, just day. I like this because it means you can start at any time of the year and read through, no feeling like you've "missed" something. I also enjoy the diversity in topics of the prayers and the fact that there is a topical index at the end.
The book itself is of great quality and has a soft, leather-like cover that bends smoothly to read any portion of the book with ease. The writing style is personal and yet instructing. One thing I would have like to see done differently would be to put the verse at the top. This is really only for the sake that some of the prayers reference the verse but the verse comes at the end of the prayer. It just didn't make sense to me but it's not hard to remember to read the verse first and then the prayer.
I would recommend this little prayer book for those who are looking for a way to encourage a habit of prayer in their daily routines (um, I suppose we all could use that). It would also make a great gift! The prayers are short as are the passages of scripture, but it can be a great jumping-off point for the rest of your devotional time.

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes, but was under no obligation to read the book or post a review. I do so under my own motivation and the opinions I have expressed in this review are honest and entirely my own.
