The book did NOT say it is a ‘prayer and Study Guide’ but that’s what was sent when I received it-VERY DISAPPOINTING!

Learn to Pray

I love how easy she makes prayer to be understood and standing on God's word

Can use it in everyday situations

You will love her ability to relate to your everyday situations. Easy reading.

You can't affort not to pray for your children!

I have used this book for a dozen years to pray for my children and now my new grandchild. God's faithfulness can be seen in so many answers to each prayer offered up on their behalf. Stormie has put my heart into words that I can use as a guide as I pray for my children. Because she has seen so many prayers answered that we prayed for her, my daughter's faith is very strong. She is now using Power of a Praying Parent to pray for her daughter, adding, next to mine, her own dates and circumstances surrounding her prayers and God's faithful answers. I even use it as a guide to pray for children other than my own. This book now is my standard gift to new parents.

The Power of a Praying Parent

The Power of a Praying® Parent Deluxe Edition They say there isn't a manual for raising our kids. However, I believe this book should be handed out as you leave the hospital with your newborn! I have learned so much from reading and re-reading this book over the past few years. It is practical and easy to read. I believe in the power of prayer but wasn't always sure how to do it. This book touches on all the important aspects of a childs life. Like Stormie says, "we can't leave our kids lives to chance..."

El mejor regalo para nuestros hijos

Creo que este libro lo debe tener toda familia. Como podemos guiar a nuestros hijos en este mundo sin la ayuda de Dios? Yo creo que el titulo de este libro es adecuado, hay un grán poder de bendición en la oracion de los padres por sus hijos. Lo hemos vivido en mi hogar. Es tan hermoso que en la navidad anterior fué el regalo ideal para muchos de nuestros familiares y amigos mas cercanos. Permite que el amor de Dios entre en tu hogar.

Excelente libro

Como madre primeriza, tenia mucho miedo de TODO lo que le pudiera pasar a mi hijo, tenia un stress constante de no poder cuidarlo todo el tiempo. Este libro te enseña como compartir esa carga con DIos y en realidad poder disfrutar de la maternidad al maximo, mi esposo tambien lo leyo y nos a ayudado muchisimo. Ahora estamos tranquilos porque hemos aprendido a Orar por nuestro hijo y a dejarlo todo en las manos de Dios.

Powerful Little Book of Prayer

This book is a great resource that belongs on every parent's bookshelf. The market is brimming with books detailing the physical and behavioral development of children, yet so few of these books even admit that there is a spiritual side of things! If we want to care for all facets of our children, we must admit this truth into our lives. "Power of a Praying Parent" fills this gap by pointing out spiritual realities and suggesting ways that we can cover our childrens' lives with our prayers.The book is divided into managable chapters that highlight different areas where we can pray for our children. Each chapter starts out with an explanation of that area, followed by a prayer, and closes with scripture verses for reflection. I like this format because it is very adaptable. You could skip right to an area where you know that your child needs prayer, or you could start at the beginning and faithfully read each chapter as a general guide. Because the chapters are short, you could use a chapter as a devotional each time you pray. I also appreciate the way the scripture verses are typed out so that I don't have to spend time looking each one up.Omartian's tone is never heavy handed. Along the way, she admits her short comings and shares her struggles, and I always feel as if I have a wise but gentle friend whispering into my ear when I read her works.This is an excellent gift for parents who are expecting or for a parent struggling with a teen. Because the tone is so welcoming and compassionate, I also find it's a great witnessing tool. People who may be otherwise closed to the gospels are sometimes open to anything if they think that it may help their child. I'd also recommend this book to uncles, aunts, teachers, grandparents, youth workers, basically anyone who is interested in the welfare of our children.
