While My Child Is Away
About the book:
Parents and children are separated for many reasons: divorce, school, camp, even work. It might be for just a few days or indefinitely. These 140 prayers give voice to all that you are hoping for your child when you can't be the one to meet their needs. Prayers of blessings, protection, instruction and grace. Or prayers for those around your child to choose wisely, see their needs, and love then as you would. Prayers for friends, teachers, coaches and mentors to step in and fill every need. Knowing that a loving Father God is caring for your child, even when you can't, gives you the peace and assurance that all will be well.
I have enjoyed reading these prayers plus devotional thoughts for parents. As our children age they spend less time at home. These prayers are applicable for any parent experiencing time with a child away for whatever reason.
This book has been a reminder to me of the importance of praying for my children. The prayers in the book are written from the heart and helped me consider things I had not previously prayed for my children.
This is a nice resource for parents and will be a comfort to those with children who are away.
I received this book from the FirstLook blog tour program for my review. Thank you.
Have a day of blessings!
