I have had this book for at least 12 years. My oldest will be 13 this month.
I love this book because there are times when you just don’t know what to pray for you children. In such a harsh world, how do you protect them at all times?
This book helped me come to the realization that I can not, but that God could and would.
I am not naive to think this would keep all bad from happening. I do think however that in the bad God provides a peace that surpasses understanding and that he also provides guidance on how to handle each situation we are faced with.
This is a book that I keep close during my quiet times, one that I have given to many friends and one that I highly recommend. Power of a Praying Parent
