Mary DeMuth has written 366 prayers that thus-far (I'm 30 days into "Jesus Every Day") have expressed exactly what my heart desires to pray about to Jesus. Mary has a way of capturing the desires, needs, requests, struggles, pain, and desperation of my heart and helps me to share them with Jesus on a daily basis. And I am able to walk through the Bible over a year's time with my focus on Jesus and hearing from His Word in ways that bring healing, refreshment and joy to my weary heart. Thank you, Jesus, for speaking through Mary's prayers for me and others who will be reading this meditative book!

Mary Demuth pours out her soul to the Lord in her beautifully written 366-day devotional “Jesus Every Day”. I love how she bares her soul, honestly and authentically. Her calls to Jesus speak to places in my own soul. ”Jesus Every Day” is not dated so you can begin anywhere and anytime, which I love that there is no falling behind or catching up. The author’s words are pleas to the Lord for compassion, grace, understanding, and forgiveness in our humanness, our imperfections, our everyday messes. “Jesus Every Day” is 366 daily prayers with supporting Bible verses that will take you through every book of the Bible which gives you an understanding of God’s heart for us. Mary Demuth’s prayers are spoken from the depths of her soul and touch on relatable seasons of our lives. As you read through you can say, “yes, I have felt that way too, I am not alone in this.” A few of my many favorite prayer quotes from Jesus Every Day by Mary Demuth are: “I choose to forgive those who have hurt me deeply. Not because it’s easy, but because you ask me to.” “Forgive me when I desperately try to be almighty in my own small strength. Forgive me when I worship at the altar of controlling-everything-in-my-life. I don’t want to do that anymore. I am tired, Jesus. Tired of trying to manufacture mightiness.” “Show me where my mountain is today, Jesus. Where do I need to lay my Isaac down? What do I trust in more than I trust in you? What is keeping me from fully, wholeheartedly following you and obeying your voice? Show me, even if I tremble as I ask this.” I loved “Jesus Every Day”. It has become part of my daily devotional reading and it soothes my soul. Mary’s words awakened my spirit and allowed me to be more vulnerable when I am spending time with Jesus. Her raw and genuine prayers are rich with emotion, faith, inspiration, and a deep love for the Lord. Mary’s honest, tender heart and beautiful way of praying to the Lord sets her devotional apart. I love the authenticity and the fact that you go through each book of the Bible as you read through it. “Jesus Every Day” is a heartfelt journey with the Lord. I am confident that this will become one of your favorite devotional’s as it is mine.

Mary DeMuth shares her heart in this book of prayers that touches the deepest part of ours. Each day of reading I’ve found myself echoing her sentiments. Mary has put so beautifully into words what my soul cries out to the Lord. Knowing that someone else feels the same as I do encourages me and makes me believe that God hears us both. Easy to read in a few minutes, but the impact will last a lifetime. I don’t usually read devotionals, but I can hardly put this one down to wait for the next day. Thank you for allowing me a sample copy…I can’t wait until I have the complete book in my hands!

A year-long conversation with Jesus... Only I did it in half a year. Guided by a daily Scripture, Mary DeMuth prays an honest, reverent, prayer that I joined, making it my own. It has been a rich and satisfying prayer journey. I have given this book as a gift to many, and I have received heartfelt thanks from a 15-year-old, a 93-year-old and many in between.

I have been a long time follower of Mary DeMuth's writing and I have personally been blessed by her 'mind if I pray for you' prayers at the close of her monthly newsletters. Her prayers are real everyday prayers that get to the heart of our day to day struggles and victories. In this new prayer devotional, Mary has once again set out to bless others through her ability to meet us where we are with her prayers. These are the kinds of prayers that we need to hear when we just can't seem to find the right words ourselves. I especially love that this devotional is not dated. You can just begin the day you receive the book and follow along, guilt-free, even if you miss a day or two because the date is not right up there at the top of the page reminding you that you are lagging behind. Just pick up where you left off and begin again. Each day you begin with a scripture and then follow along in prayer with Mary as she has written such real and heartfelt prayers that you cannot help but connect as you read. Simple. From Genesis to Revelation, the devotional moves through each book of the Bible so that when you finally get to the last prayer you will have an overarching feeling for the great redemptive story of God's plan. If you are looking for a simple plan to pray through the Bible this year or you just need encouragement in your prayer life, this is your book. I have read the 30 Day Sampler provided by Harvest House Publishers and was blessed as Mary's prayers became my own.

This is Demuth’s masterpiece. It’s been a long while since I’ve read anything so prolific yet still so practical, and applicable. She is not only a wordsmith, it is clearly evident that the hand of God was upon her when creating this book. I fall in love with it, every new morning, when I read that day’s installment. Truly brilliant. Epically truthful; She gives words to the prayers I’ve had buried in my soul. I’ve gained a new, brighter, understanding of God and my walk with Him. This is one of those books you won’t want to share, but you’ll buy copies for everyone you know. I think I’ve ordered 6 more so far. Thank you to the author for changing my life through this book.

Would you like to have a closer walk with the Lord but don’t known how? I certainly have, and the last thing my pride wants to do is ask someone to show me. Jesus Every Day is a beautiful prayer book, and the prayers are not too long or too short. I have been using the 30-day Sampler from Harvest House Publishers. Mary Demuth offers us a page a day to help us pray. That’s all. Not even a full page, so that anyone can come to Jesus with it. She shows us how to enter that place of grace at Jesus’ throne. Jesus Every Day is shares scripture and prayers to open honest communication with our Lord. It doesn’t have to take the place of any devotional one might be using but will, instead, enhance them. She takes scripture verses from every book in the Bible and shares a prayer that helps make the Bible more meaningful. She further combines the best prayers via thanksgiving and praise, awareness of sin and repentance, and asking for daily needs. And grace. Beautiful grace rather than shame and condemnation. Mary Demuth’s unique style and heart cries echo that of many women, including me. She has an open heart and style based on tendering through her life experiences and the ministry God has given her. The prayers can be complete unto themselves or provide excellent starters to explore further in a quiet time. The introduction includes a prayer of Mary’s for those reading the introduction (page 5 in 30-day Sampler): “Jesus, I pray for the dear person reading this prayer. Would you woo them to yourself? Would you bring peace into whatever chaos they face today? Would you show them how deeply and widely (and wildly) you love them? … you are there. You are available. You offer grace to approach you...” There are no dates to tie oneself to. She begins with Day 1, Day 2, and so forth through 366 days. One doesn’t have to feel s/he missed a day or two, then give up on it because there are too many to catch up with. Maybe I’m the only one who has done that? This can also be used over and over as each day’s prayer can open something different in us in the following years. I highly recommend Jesus Every Day. From a grateful heart: I received a copy of the 30-day sampler, including the introduction and first 30 days, from the author, and here is my honest review.
