'Oh, my goodness! I love this book. A Prayer for Our Country: Words to Ignite and Inspire Hope is a gorgeous, heartwarming, all-encompassing prayer to our Lord. It thanks Him for our daily provisions, for always being with us, and for His magnificent love. It asks Him for guidance, knowledge, and understanding. It's a lovely, sincere, and tender prayer that would do us good to say each day.
I love how inclusive this book is, illustrating people with diverse ethnicities, abilities, ages, and such. We are all God's children and are blessed so much. This prayer book expresses thankfulness and embraces togetherness. We may not know what others may be going through, but God knows, and by praying for others we are uniting the country and strengthening its future.
The full-page illustrations are detailed, lively, and beautiful, and the essence of this prayer book warms my soul.'
