"God, I need you to do something in my children!"

Have those words found their way into your desperate prayers? Do you feel helpless to know how to equip your children for this world and all it throws at them? If so, you're not alone.

When Brooke McGlothlin realized her best efforts were falling woefully short of her goal to produce godly children, she discovered the joy and power of praying Scripture over her family. Her life and her children's lives were transformed. Yours can be too.

Complete with prayers for specific situations, this encouraging book is perfect for times when you
· feel too busy to pray,
· don't know what or how to pray,
· don't know if your prayers really matter.

Nothing is more powerful and faith-building than praying God's Word for those you love. Become a mom full of hope in the God who can, even if you can't.

"Praying Mom is the prayer mentor you've always wanted from a mom who absolutely lives this message on her knees."—STACEY THACKER, author of Threadbare Prayer
