I love this book! As the mother of a 7 year old girl, I am starting to experience her growth mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. She is developing her own will and as her parent, I want to help her shape it.
However, on my own, I can achieve very little. Especially when trying to shape another person! I have enough trouble trying to shape my own person! That’s where prayer comes in.
God tells us that we are to teach our children. However, every parent will tell you, it takes more than what we can do on our own. God’s guidance in the children’s life is what is needed.
What I love about this book is that it is tailored specifically to what girls go through as well as things that all of us go through. So in addition to anger, pride, and such, there are also topics of rejection, relationships and things geared to what most girls experience and struggle with.
The prayers are very specific. They pray over the child as well as petition God for help with parenting the issue. The focus is truly about inserting God into every part of the situation. It’s not just about changing the daughter, but also about changing the parent. This is so that God can be glorified and his will to be accomplished.
In addition to that, scripture is included before the prayer so that the reader can see that the prayer is Biblically sound. This is one of my favorite parts!
Periodically, there are excerpts in the book that have a little anecdote and/or story about things to think about. For instance, there’s an insert about a girl’s relationship with her dad. or a story about how the author’s prayer about something was answered. These are great additions to uplift and/or focus you on how God answers prayer.
When I received the book, I didn’t have high hopes for it. I thought it would be very generic. However, I am very impressed. The prayers are scriptural, they cover all aspects of the situation, and they bring everything back to God’s glory and His will. I couldn’t be happier with this prayer book. It truly brings the essence of scripture into prayer life in order to bring all parts of the situation under God’s guidance.
I highly recommend this book to parents of daughters.
