As a mom, I’m always on the look out for ways to cover my kids in prayer, and I love the idea of this beautiful book 365 Pocket Prayers for Mothers. It’s lovely enough to be a gift with its lavender cover of imitation leather, and it’s small enough to slip into a purse and carry with you as a mom-on-the-go. Personally, I may keep it tucked into a purse or even in the glove compartment of the minivan to pull out any time I’m waiting for my kids outside of school or other activities.
You can pray through the book in order from Day 1 to Day 365, or you can use the index to find prayers on topics that might be on your heart like: worry, feeling burned out, thankfulness, balance, and others.
The daily entries include a brief Scripture verse, as well. Every few days, you’ll find two especially short prayers for those times that you are rushed or perhaps for the weekends.
I loved the beautiful honesty of the prayers. They were personal to the three ladies who wrote the book—maybe sharing stories about watching the sunset with family or how a daughter is learning to be thankful. So, for me, the prayers were less about me saying these same words to God, as they were a way to pray ‘with’ another mom. I could read the prayer on the page and then continue to pray for my own family in agreement and in my own words.
It’s a great gift for moms maybe for Christmas, Mother’s Day or a birthday…or really any occasion. But it’s also a prayer book you may want for yourself!
