In a lot of ways, this book is similar to "The Power of a Praying Parent" by Stormie Omaritan, but I still loved it just the same! Marla explains 15 different areas in which we can pray for our children while helping them fight spiritual, emotional and physical battles. There are so many issues that our children are going to face that are out of our control. But these issues are never too big for God! We can pray for all of these things on our child's behalf.
Marla explains how to Pray the Scriptures when we pray. Use your child's name in place of "Man" or Him/Her." Pray Specifically. If your child is sick, don't just pray that God will make them well. Pray specifically for what you would like God to do! God isn't always going to answer in the ways we would expect, but often His ways turn out much better than we could have planned anyway! When you pray, have faith that God will answer your prayers! Don't just pray and hope for the best.
This book is also filled with uplifting stories and accounts of women who have prayed for their children and seen God work in amazing ways! Marla suggests keeping a prayer journal to record things you are praying for as well as answered prayers! She also suggests beginning a gratitude journal and listing 3 things every day that you are grateful for. It is much easier to see the bright side of situations when we are grateful!
This book would be great for a Bible study or a Women's Prayer Group. In fact, Marla even provides group discussion questions at the end of each chapter along with key Bible verses and a sample prayer of how to pray for your children based on the chapter. She also frequently mentions her website, www.PrayerWarriorMom.com where readers can visit and share how God has answered their prayers and worked in their lives and their children's lives through prayer.
I absolutely loved this book and rate it as 5 stars!
