Praying Circles Around Your Children
I want to begin by saying that this little book will change the way you pray for your children. Mark Batterson says, “You’ll never be a perfect parent, but you can be a praying parent!” Praying Circles around your Children will help you understand how important it is to pray for children out loud. Pray where they can hear you and you will be truly amazed at how well they will remember the prayers and the Bible verses you say during your prayers.
The five prayer circles, Circling the Promises of God, Making Prayer Lists, Creating Prayer Mantras, Forming Prayer Circles, and Praying through the Bible are explained in detail and Mark also gives examples of not only his life but of others as well. It is very interesting to read how this type of praying has changed the lives of others and how well those around them can see the changes taking place.
One of the suggestions given is to make a prayer journal for your children, that means to write down the prayers you pray for your children and when they graduate high school, college or get married, present them with the journal. This is something that I am personally going to start doing for my children. I have always prayed for my children but not like Mark suggests. It is time for a change for the better and I am so glad I read this book.
Mark also stated, “Prayer is the way we write the future. It’s the difference between letting things happen and making things happen.” I am ready to start making things happen in my home, with my family. That begins with prayer, prayer for my children, prayer for my husband, and prayer for everyone.
