Prayers for Your Children Review [+ giveaway]

Disclosure: The links in this post are NOT affiliate links. I was not compensated for writing this post, but Family Christian provided a copy of the book for me to read and review and will provide a copy to one reader selected in the giveaway. All ideas included in this post are mine and the opinions are entirely my own.

If I haven't told you before about the maternal instinct I felt one time when trying to protect my son from our neighbor's giant malamute then you probably haven't ever talked with me about dogs. Fortunately, Josh was fine and we were all fine, but the truth is that I learned a lot that day about the mama bear in me.  In fact, when it comes to caring for our children there's not much that can match a parent's desire to protect their kids and provide for their child's needs.  Nothing can compare to the love that a mother feels for their child.

Family Christian sent me a copy of Prayers for Your Children by James Banks to review. I've been reading one entry per day for the last two and a half weeks and praying for my kids each morning. Each prayer is two or three pages and includes reference after reference to scripture and the promises that God makes to us in His Word. The short prayers guide you and empower you through Biblical stories and reminders of what God has done and can do. What more could you ask of God than to show you how to faithfully pray for, then provide for, and protect your kids?

The author of this book believes in the power of prayer.  He believes that his mom's prayers for him have both literally and figuratively kept him out of the bottom of a canyon.  He's written a collection of prayers "intended to point our sons and daughters to what Jesus alone can give them" and in just a couple of weeks I've learned how to better pray for Julianna and Joshua.

I've been praying for my children to know Jesus in hopes of leaving them a legacy of love and I encourage you to do the same. This book has helped me find time to lift up in prayer those dearest to me, my children.

Thanks to Family Christian I am able to give one lucky winner a copy of this book. Enter the giveaway with the widget below and I'll select a winner after midnight Friday.

Enter to win a copy of Prayers for Your Children (Ends 3/13)
