I was a single mother of 2 boys, for years before I met my husband and had a new baby with him. My boys fathers never wanted to be a part of their lives and all they had was me. For years I struggled with them to listen and obey what I had instructed. They fought me all the way. As a new Christian at the time, it was a very hard battle and I think if I had this book back then I would not have gotten into all the bad relationships that I did and had ruined all that good relationships I did have. I would have prayed more, forgave more, and learned to love through Gods Love better than I did. For anyone that is a Single MOM or Even a MOM or DAD THIS BOOK IS GREAT. BUY IT YOU'LL LOVE IT AND YOU'LL NEVER REGRET IT, I PROMISE. The Best Part is the Prayers after the Chapter. I have learned so much more than I ever have and I am more on fire for the Lord than even I was as a new Christian. It is Evident that Stormie Omartian has been blessed with a gift of Prayers because I have seen a difference in my children¿s lives everyday and My husband and I can have that special bond with our children that we have always wanted through these Books inspired by God.

The practical and useful tools (prayers) are found in this book. Mrs. omartian does an awesome, anointed job of giving us parents a guide of what to pray and helpful testimonies that also encourage in my own parenting struggles & triumphs.

I wish the opportunity to read this book had presented itself when my children were still small. They are adults now, but I use the prayers and modify them to fit the current circumstances. It is a great preventative model as well as an intervention tool. It makes a terrific gift for young mothers.

Stormie takes you through many areas of a child's life and explains why it is so important to pray for those areas of our children. We cannot be everywhere with them, but God can and is. Our children still make their own choices. But what a comfort to know that I can surround my child with prayer. When you don't know what or how, stormie has prayers that you can pray and make your own as you learn how to pray for your child.

Stormie has done it again! With powerful prayers that could only come from a mother's heart, she has blessed us with this book. Don't just wish and hope for the best for your kids...PRAY FOR IT! This book will help you do it. The results of effective prayer totally eclipse wishful thinking every time.

Just loved this book. I studied it in a group setting with some ladies from my church. We took three chapters a week and really immersed ourselves in the ideas and prayer tactics of Stormie Omartian. The book is full of topical prayers and Bible verses for praying over your children. Subjects ranging from your children's protection from harm to instilling in them a desire to learn and having a sound mind. A wonderful, inspiring book that gives a parent new ways to influence their children's lives and the confidence to pray boldly for them. This is another book I recommend for every Christian parent.

I really enjoyed reading this book, I plan on buying others from her, it gave me a new insight into what I need to pray about for my child. I would recommend everyone to read this book for your child personally or just a child you love but does not live with you.

I have purchased at least 15 of these books. It has been such a blessing to me that it's my baby shower staple. I've purchased one for every shower I attend and I get nothing but glowing responses from all who have read it. It's a short and easy read and very powerful.
