Prayer is a parent’s greatest superpower! This unique prayer guide for mothers leads you through sixteen areas of your child’s life from head (thoughts) to shoulders (burdens) to hands (gifts) to feet (the path ahead).
Our responsibilities as parents can feel overwhelming, especially when it comes to prayer. How do we know what to say? How can we truly pray for our kids rather than fall into a spiral of worry?
In Praying for Your Child from Head to Toe, bestselling author Sharon Jaynes helps you use Scripture to pray powerfully and purposefully. This practical and encouraging book equips you to:
• Pray specific Scriptures over each area of a child’s life—from their mind and what they think about, to their eyes and what they look at, down to their feet and the path they take.
• See prayer not as a means of gaining control over your child to make them who you want them to be but relinquishing control to who God wants them to be.
• Overcome your feelings of inadequacy as an intercessor and become a prayer warrior who is expectant for what God will do.
No one will be a perfect parent, but we can all be praying parents who confidently pray for God’s protection and provision in the physical and spiritual realms. This is a prayer guide you will use again and again, from birth to empty nest.
