Express your concerns, frustrations, and heartaches to God with 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers
"Daily life brings worries—challenges with your children, tasks undone, health problems, financial difficulties, and other things that keep you from enjoying your children and your life. Sometimes it’s difficult to know what to pray for or even how to talk with God about these life issues.
Following in the footsteps of the popular 365 Pocket Prayers series, which has touched so many lives, here is an edition especially for moms and their special life needs. Each reading in this convenient, easy-to-carry, quick-access guide begins with a daily prayer and ends with a promise from Scripture."
My Thoughts: Unlike other 365 day devotionals, 365 Pocket Prayers for mothers begins with Day 1 not January 1. Each reading begins with a prayer about a specified topic and a prayer and closes with a scripture to reflect on. The topical index is a great place to search for prayers by topic. Whether you're looking for a prayer about rest, responsibility, weariness, moving or gossip, there's a prayer or two which addresses the topic.
Day 2 is one of my fave reading so far. It's a prayer about children and it begins "I knew that children are blessings from you, but I really had no idea how often they'd gift me with lessons I've needed to learn for a long time...Father, how many children on this earth aren't appreciated?" My children are the ultimate manifestation of God's blessing in my life and no matter what I teach them I seem to learn so much more from them.
365 Pocket Prayers for mothers would make a wonderful gift for mothers of all ages. The book would be a wonderful addition to a baby shower for a mommy to be or nursery gift for a new mommy.
