Wait! Don’t close this window or hit delete because you don’t think Prayers for Your Children is relevant for you. Whether you realize it or not, you – yes, you – influence the children you come in contact with everyday.The children in our lives; whether they are our own, grandchildren, neighbors, students or church groups, have been entrusted to us. It is our responsibility to point them to Christ. Therefore, James Banks’, Prayers for Your Children, is a wonderful tool to have. You can use it in the order given, praying through 90 days, or select the topics from the index that are pertinent for a specific stage or circumstance in the child’s life.

This book is divided into thirteen these. Each theme is a concept that is vital for living the Christian life. Every section starts with a verse then a short illustration of the given theme followed by a prayer for each day of the week. I love how the prayers encapsulate so many scriptures. The prayers each day are meant to be a jumping off point for you. This enables you to continue on with the specifics for the child in your life.

I would definitely recommend this book. The greatest gift we could ever give is the gift of our prayers.

Who are the children in your life and how can you pray for them today?

One thought on “Writer Wednesday Review

  1. I can’t wait to get this book. I’m a school counselor, teacher, mom, friend… I worry about children all the time not just my own but all children in general living in our broken society, demands, expectations and the violence in world in general. I worry about the dangers and negative influences they will come across in their everyday lives.
    Thank you
