This book is great. Until your child dies and you wonder why all the prayers you prayed that she recommends didn't "work". The book is not Biblical; she does not understand that God's ways are mysterious and He is not a God who answers prayer like a vending machine; put in a prayer and get the answer you expect. The chapter on praying for safety and protection for your child is misleading. It focuses on their physical safety. So what are praying Christian parents to believe if their child dies, gets horribly injuried, disabled, raped, or has a mental illness or handicap? That we didn't pray the right way? Or for the right things? Jesus clearly said that in this world we will have trouble, and that this world is under the control of the evil one. And that death will be defeated once and for all when Jesus returns. Since my daughter died, I no longer pray the same way from how I learned in this book. I don't pray grasping, anxious prayers for my surviving children. Instead I pray for them to have God's peace, love, endurance, patience, etc; the fruits of the spirit. God knows what we need and what our children need; He doesn't need us to pray down a list to make sure every eventuality is covered. Don't fall for this book only to be disillusioned. My daughter died, but she is truly safe now, in the arms of Jesus. Can you pray to release your children to God, even if it means their death? Then you have truly learned to trust Him and have a faith that will endure any hardship. Here is a picture of my beautiful daughter, Fiona Rose, who lives in heaven.
