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.
Beyond this book you can also purchase the study guide which does not include prayers or any content from this book, it is only a book of study questions to help inspire thought and discussion. The third book available is a small (perfectly pocket-sized) book that is JUST prayers, but handy to carry around with you always. I highly recommend all of the books; just be aware of which one you are purchasing, each series uses the same cover art on all three books.
I do love her ideas for prayer and what to pray for.
