Author Sarah Young has touched millions of lives through her devotionals. This special edition of Jesus Calling® invites you to take your children along for the journey—grow closer while experiencing Jesus' love in a fresh, joyful way.
In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope. Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace.
Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue.
Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling?
Knowing Jesus on a deeper, more personal level not only means seeing Him at work in your life, but also sharing your heart with the Savior. Whether you’re struggling your way through a valley or reaping a bounty of blessings, Jesus is very much alive and present. The question is: Do you see Him? Do you recognize His voice? His comforting hand? His desire to fellowship with you?
In Jesus LivesTM, 180 topical devotions exemplify Jesus’ presence in your life. Through this journey, Sarah brings to light the truth of Romans 8:11: The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you! This promise will come to life and bring new meaning as you discover that Jesus lives indeed!

We pray to stay sober, centered, or solvent. When the lump is deemed malignant. When the money runs out before the month does. When the marriage is falling apart. We pray.
But wouldn’t we like to pray more? Better? Stronger? With more fire, faith, and fervency?
Yet we have kids to feed, bills to pay, deadlines to meet. The calendar pounces on our good intentions like a tiger on a rabbit. And what about our checkered history with prayer? Uncertain words. Unmet expectations. Unanswered requests.
We aren’t the first to struggle with prayer. The first followers of Jesus needed prayer guidance too. In fact, prayer is the only tutorial they ever requested.
And Jesus gave them a prayer. Not a lecture on prayer. Not the doctrine of prayer. He gave them a quotable, repeatable, portable prayer. Couldn’t we use the same?
In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin.
