"It's hard to put prayer into words at times. It's hard to see how our small, insignificant stories could ever be part of the glorious story God's writing on eternity. In Jesus Every Day, Mary DeMuth shows us how to make ourselves available to Him, wrapping prayers around key moments in the Bible. What a lovely companion to a surrendered life."

"I knew when I prayed the very first prayer in this book that I was holding something incredibly special.

If you are serious about going deeper with God, Jesus Every Day is for you."
—Cheryl Weber, cohost and senior executive producer of 100 Huntley Street
"Talk about fresh, deep, and authentic! I found myself a bit breathless as I read through Mary DeMuth's Jesus Every Day, eager to pray through the Bible with her. The life-changing petitions probe real stuff and offer real grace."

In her devotional book, Jesus Every Day, Mary DeMuth, offers us 366 written prayers that will encourage you with her prayers and inspire you to follow her lead as you intercede for others.
“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.
A different feature is that the days are only numbered not dated. Thus you can start on any date and work through. I’ll share a secret just between us. If you want to take two days to ponder a passage, you have that liberty. And ... if you should happen to miss a reading one day (not that you would) ... just pick it up again. I promise not to tell if you take longer.
Mary models a personal response to the revelation. For example on Day 4 (Genesis 12:8) it speaks of Abram pitching his tent between Bethel (the house of God) and Ai (the Canaanite heap of ruins). Mary then prays, “Jesus ... What a picture of my life on this earth. Help me understand the pull of both — of spending time in the house of God, yet venturing out into the world to be a beacon of your light.” This is a challenge all believers face — how to be in the world but not of it. Thank you Mary for voicing and praying this for us.
For each day, the reader can then either use Mary’s response to prayerfully interact with God. Or it can be a springboard to ask the question: “Lord, what would you say to me through this passage?” What I’ve found helpful for me is to ask this question and journal the responses the Holy Spirit brings, cresting a record of His faithfulness.
What I like about this resource is that it challenges people to relate back to God. This is not a book of cookie-cutter prayers but has clearly been wrought out in the furnace of life and over an extended period. These are not just prayers. They are a testimony — the records of a life journey, wrestling with difficult questions.
Mary’s honesty and vulnerability challenges us as well, for us also to be honest and vulnerable. First with ourselves (the hardest often) and then with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit then shows us Jesus, who points us to the Father. The book becomes a dunamis way to enter into the perichoresis of Trinity Life.
In the second edition, it could be helpful to have a list of scriptures used and/or put the scriptures by the chapter titles in the Table of Contents. It would be nice to know how the passages were chosen. But, these are minor points. They do not detract from what is otherwise a much needed, excellent and powerful resource to equip the body of Christ to interact with God. And by so interacting, the bride will become transformed into the likeness of her bridegroom and take up her authority.
Let me encourage you to get “Jesus Every Day” as I know it will help you to hear and to speak with Jesus every day.
