When I first started sharing daily prayers for our kids on Facebook, it was just because it was an easy thing to share. I figured you’d like to have a daily verse as much as I do. I have been so excited when so many of you respond, like and share those small statuses.
I feel like we’re having a mini-prayer meeting and all of us are quickly laying hands on our kids at the same time, praying the same thing. What life change God can do with those quick prayers!
Many people have been asking about the books I get the prayers from and I’m going to show them all to you now!
The first (and my personal favorite) is Stormie Omartian’s Power of a Praying Parent. The reason I love it is that it is powerful. They chose the right name for the book! These aren’t meek, “keep-my-kid-safe” prayers. These are Scripture-filled, expectant prayers. I feel powerful when I read them!
I did a vlog about the book, if you’d like to hear (and see) more!
I love putting my kids’ name in Scripture. It reminds me how living and active God’s Word really is!
If you want to be reminded that your prayers do matter and that God has given you the ability, the calling and the right to change your kids’ lives in prayer–you need this book! I feel like I underlined the whole book because it was that good.
I got to hang out with Brooke at dotMom last weekend and let me tell you, she is passionate about praying for boys. She believes (and I do, too) that we can begin a revival in the hearts of boys…future men, dads and husbands by praying for them as boys. Oh, this is so big! This ebook is similar to Berndt’s book in that she’s listed a lot of Scripture with blanks for your kids’ names. I love it!
I’ve got two other books on my bookshelf about praying for your kids–I will be going through them soon and sharing them with you. And (*whisper*) my new ebook may just have something to do with praying God’s Word for your kids and doing battle on your knees for their hearts! Eeek!
So, do you have a favorite book about prayer? Leave a link in the comments! I’d love to hear about it!
