This book made me look at praying for my children and the children in our Children's Ministry in a whole new light. It made me realize the awesome responsibility we have to pray for children and how to pray for them. We purchased this for the Sunday School teachers of our church and they have loved it! It was praised so much throughout the church, we made a second bulk purchase for parents. I wold recommend this to anyone.
I was so happy when Zondervan asked me to review this book for them, and they sent me a free copy over the holidays!
This was a quick and easy read, a real delight for a mother's heart. The price for this pocketbook is so reasonable and with only 103 small pages to peruse, you can really gain a lot of wisdom and ideas in the short amount of time it takes to read through this gem. I loved the promises and stories that were highlighted from the Bible, I loved the confidence it gave me to keep praying, not give up, and expect amazing things from God - in His timing and His will. I can truly trust the One who gave me my children to love and raise up to be godly men.
I read this book on my Kindle and immediately wanted to give it to family and friends, so I ordered 20 print copies for Christmas, and wished that I had ordered more. In this world of horrors, where we can not predict what our children will face on any given day, this book offers hope -- hope for our children, hope for our families and friends, and hope for our WORLD. We need to find ways to do what we can do and truly all we can do to protect them is TRUST OUR CHILDREN TO GOD. Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV) provides some words that just might encourage us as we Pray Circles Around Our Children. Keep Praying. Keep Praying. Prayer matters. Prayer make all the difference!
As a work-from-home mom, it sometimes takes me a while to get through a book. I finished this one in one sitting.
It both inspired me, and gave me the reminder that I need to be praying more for my children.
The ideas of ways that we can intercede in prayer for our children, and invite them to learn about prayer right along with us, were unique and I've already started using some of these ideas in my personal prayers.
