What parent feels like they spend enough time praying for their children?
From the moment our children first arrive in this world, we begin to talk to God about their immediate needs – safety, protection, health… all good things. Yet the truth is there is so much more we want for them: salvation, a bold & growing faith, a virtuous life, blessings, godly qualities, love for the Bible, purity of mind as well as body & heart, heart for the gospel, godly friends, obedient spirit, freedom from family strongholds, tender heart to confess quickly, godly future mate, help as they struggle with comparison and peer pressure, strong prayer life, future vocation, good work ethic, courage, confidence, good relationship with siblings and teachers, reverence, discernment…
Years ago, as a new parent, I began to realize my tendency to largely pray about whatever was right in front of me. It occurred to me one day that since I was keeping a notebook with lists of people I wanted to remember to pray for on a regular basis, why not begin making a list to pray through of all the many things I’d like to see God do in the lives of my children.
That list grew through the years as my kids did and became the foundation for this book.
It’s my prayer that this book might help you pray more regularly and more purposefully for your children.
I am learning that one of the most important things I can do for my two boys is to pray for them. Tony and his wife Terri have been wonderful role models for me on just how to go about praying scripture over their children. Philippians 4:6-7 reminds us to not be anxious, but with prayer make our requests known. These devotions are tools to help lead me on that path of finding peace as I pray for specific needs.

The passion and humility that Tony brings to the prayers in this book are both powerful and inspiring. As beautiful as it is a peaceful read.
