Cheryl Sacks book, The Prayer Saturated Family is a practical guide to lead families into a lifestyle of prayer. Following the guidelines in this book will individually enhance each person’s relationship with God and draw the family together as one team to win the victory over the challenges life presents. The testimonies bring it to life, igniting a faith that says,” If God did it for them; He can do it for me.” Cheryl’s book needs to be in every home. Barbara Scott, Faith Ministries, Inc.
I so believe the principles of this book work, that I've given away over 10 copies to my friends! The prayers in this book are very powerful and give me guidelines for how to pray for my family. It brings to light all the ways a parent can pray with and for their children--to keep them from falling into temptations that destroy their lives and help them make the right choices. I highly recommend The Prayer Saturated Family, no matter if you have pre-schoolers, teenagers, or your kids are grown up with kids of their own. It's the best book on family prayer I've ever read.
