This expanded edition of the bestseller features updated content on issues like technology and identity, and comes with new material designed to invite children into the family prayer circle. Hardcover edition features a ribbon marker and presentation page—perfect for gifting!

There is no need we will face in parenting—or that our kids will confront in their lives—that God has not already thought of, and provided for, in his Word. And there can be no greater privilege than partnering with him, through our prayers, to accomplish his best purposes in the lives of the people we love.

But where to begin?

In this updated and expanded edition celebrating the twentieth anniversary of a modern classic, you will discover how using the Bible to shape your desires and requests opens the door to God's provision—and frees us from things like worry and fear in our parenting!

It teaches you how and what to pray for your child(ren) in the following areas:

  • faith
  • character
  • safety
  • relationships
  • the future

Plus, all-new material includes sections on praying for a child's sense of identity, praying for their use of technology, and building a prayer legacy with specific strategies and a collection of child-friendly Bible verses designed to help children anchor their hope in God's Word.
