365 Pocket Morning Prayers by David R. Veerman
What a beautiful book. It's got a leather like cover with a pretty design and just feels classy to hold. Now granted I think someone has to have a pretty big pocket to carry this around, but the idea is it's small and compact.
The content? Very good. I haven't read all the prayers, but I plan to use it and then possibly pass it on as a gift. It would make a beautiful Christmas present. I also like how it's not set up my month and day, it's just numbered, so you can start whenever you want. Every 6th and 7th day are shorter for the weekends, but it wouldn't have to be used like that. There is also a topical index in the back if you're looking for a prayer about a particular issue. Now, I don't recommend this book in exchange for a personal prayer life with God, but I think it can be a helpful asset.
When I do reviews, I often like to quote a few lines, especially if I really liked the book. I randomly flipped the book open when I sat down to write this and this is what I read:
"Restrain me, I pray. I am so slow to listen and quick to speak." Wow, that fits was my initial response and it does. I'm trying to learn, but I think I'm a slow, slow learner.
