Jesus Every Day—Prayers to Awaken Your Soul

By Mary DeMuth (Harvest House)

Mary DeMuth, a Texas-based author of more than 30 fiction and nonfiction books, has produced something different this time around. A book of prayers may seem odd in our modern day, especially in the evangelical world. But Jesus Every Day—Prayers to Awaken Your Soul is the outgrowth of DeMuth’s monthly newsletter, which ends with a prayer for her readers. They requested more. The 366-day devotional includes a daily Scripture passage.

Before reading the one-month sampler copy I received from a Christian bookstore, I wondered if praying along with someone else’s words might seem awkward or a bad fit for me. However, the selected Bible verses—from Genesis through Revelation—stir the desire to partake in DeMuth’s response of praise, thanks, confession and supplication. Readers can join an unseen fellowship of those who pray along each day, adding fresh words to the chorus.
