Book Review ~ May It Be So By Justin McRoberts & Scott Erickson

About the Book

Combining prayers in two languages–words and images–this contemporary prayer guide will help you spend time in conversation with God.

As people of faith, we all struggle at times to sustain a flourishing prayer life–a loss felt all the more keenly in these times of confusion, political turbulence, and global calamity. This unique book offers a timeless solution for the spiritual and skeptical alike.

Combining story-driven reflections with visual and written prayers, this simple 40-day prayer guide will help you reconnect with God as you rediscover your own ongoing conversation with Him. Using the familiar refrains in the Lord’s Prayer as a guide, this groundbreaking resource invites you to reconnect with God creatively and organically.

5 Stars


May It Be So is a wonderful resource and guide to help the believer see, pray and practice the words of the Lord’s Prayer in a dynamic way that doesn’t leave the person the same after the forty-day period. It is not strict nor meant to be the only guide to the Lord’s Prayer, but rather, is one of many excellent materials out there that can teach and lead a person seeking a new path in prayer beyond their personal/physical needs.

Loaded with nuggets, images and interval essays, this book is priceless in what it has to offer, as each piece inspires the individual uniquely, as they let the Holy Spirit speak to them using each of these tools alongside the Lord’s Prayer. Per day, no interpretation is supplied for the nugget or image, nor is a specific word/line from the Lord’s Prayer offered; the writer/illustrator believe that as you reflect on the nugget, the Holy Spirit will lead you to what part of the Lord’s Prayer to meditate on, while illuminating the message hidden in the image. All three combined, produce a unique experience for each reader, as it should be. This is devotion on a whole new level—the use of proverbs, art, and Scripture.

This is a classic!

*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. A ‘thank you’ to Waterbrook Multnomah for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
