Prayer...it is our most powerful weapon against our enemy, the devil. He wants our children...he wants to make them wordly not Godly. He wants us to have division in our relationships with them and he wants them to not be all that God promises us they can be. In Mark Batterson's book "Praying Circles Around Your Children" he shares biblical yet practical advice to revolutionize our relationship with our children and create an effective prayer life over our children.
Praying Circles Around Your Children teaches how to create prayer lists unique to your family, claim God-inspired promises for your children, turn your family circle into a prayer circle and discover your child's life themes. Batterson not only explains how to do this but he tells you why it is so important to do this. He writes "I realize not everyone inherited a prayer legacy like I did, but you can leave a legacy for future generations. Your prayers will shape the destiny of your family for generations to come. You'll never be a perfect parent but you can be a praying parent!"
This book is certainly an easy read but it is one of those books that leave you challenged, convicted and inspired to spend more time in prayer...time in specific prayers...and time praying WITH your child and not just for your child. He gets his inspiration for praying for children from his best-selling book, The Circle Maker. Using the story of a Jewish man who drew a circle in the sand around himself and prayed fervently for rain to save people from the drought, Batterson shares 5 ways to use prayer circles to help you pray for your children.
1. Circling the Promises of God
2. Making Prayer List
3. Creating Prayer Mantras
4. Forming Prayer Circles
5. Praying through the Bible
