"No writer has made so positive an impact on the prayer life of this generation of Christians as Stormie Omartian. God has used her profoundly and there is no one I would recommend more readily: she's biblical, practical, and best of all—she lives the life!"
—Pastor Jack Hayford, Founder-Chancellor, The King's University

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.
This book gives you 30 different ways in which you can pray for your child, including praying for their protection from danger, praying they feel loved, praying for their salvation, praying they resist rebellion, praying for their personal relationships with siblings, praying for godly friends for them, praying for health, praying for them academically, praying they find and develop gifts and talents, praying for their purity, praying for their joy, praying they avoid addictions, and praying for them to find God's choice in a perfect mate. There are other topics besides these.
Each topic includes Scripture verses for you to claim as you pray and sample prayers for you to word however you see fit. The sample prayers give you something to begin with and then, you can use your own words to express your heart to God.
I used to pray very generally for my children, but now, I am praying more specifically and claiming the promises in God's Word as I do. I am spending more time than ever praying and believe God will continue to make me the parent He intended for me to be.
I am going to recommend that all parents in our church read this book and begin praying specifically for their children. I am convinced that is the only hope for them in the midst of this culture they are growing up in. As parents, we can have hope for the future of our children, as we commit to praying for them as this book instructs.
