With Mother's Day around the corner, Christian publishers are releasing a
flurry of titles to give to Dear Old Mom. In Praying the Scriptures for Your
Children: Discover How to Pray God's Will for Their Lives, Jodie Berndt
delivers an unusual twist on the traditional parenting-with-the-Bible advice.
In the style of Bruce Wilkinson's The Prayer of Jabez, she demonstrates how
moms can use various passages from Scripture to pray more effectively for their
kids. Her "prayers you can use" sections are genuinely helpful, with
well-chosen biblical verses and thoughtful commentary. ( Apr.) Copyright 2001
