Praying the Scriptures for your Children

I recently threw a baby shower with some friends. I'm planning to post about the shower later this week but I thought I'd start off with one of my favorite baby shower gifts to give.

This next book is one of my most read, well worn books. Its called Praying Scriptures for your Children, by Jodie Berndt. I myself have been blessed with a praying Mom. I know how important prayer is and how much impact it can have. When I was expecting my first I learned of this book from a friend and rushed out to get it. I was nervous about being a Mom and did not fancy myself the kind of prayer warrior my Mom is. I could not have been happier with this book. Berndt helps arm you with the power of praying scripture for your children. She shares personal stories of the impact of praying scripture has had in her life. She includes numerous scripture references that you too can pray for your children. It helped me as a young Mom to get into the regular pattern of praying scripture for my children and provided insight into parenting that relys on God's answers to those prayers.

For those of you familiar with this book, I hope this is a good reminder of the importance of praying scripture for those in your lives.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit. It is always nice to see new folks! We loved the Little Golden Books when my oldest daughter was little and had a huge collection. She took them all with her when she got married and now she reads them to her little boys. Perhaps I should buy more for MY little boys.

  4. My mom is a great prayer warrior and I've been blessed because of it! I haven't heard of this book--I'll have to look for it.
