Parenting, Perilous Times, and the Importance, Responsibility, and Results of Intercessory Prayer for Our Children
Award winning author, Dr. Elmer Towns, Vice President and Dean of the School of Religion of Liberty University and Dr. Dave Earley prolific author, and chairman of the Department of Pastoral Leadership at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Liberty University collaborate in the writing of the book “Praying for your Children,” an important addition to the “How to Pray Series.”
The book is made up of eleven chapters packed with Biblical principles, promises, and examples, providing important suggestions, advice, and practical tools to help us as parents to understand, implement, and demonstrate love for our children through interceding prayer in these perilous times. Important guidelines offer help in praying for prodigals, praying with children, and teaching them to pray.
Chapter end notes provide a wealth of suggestion for additional reading. Helpful suggestions using “Ten Top Prayers” are provided in the appendix.
To get the most out of this book, it is important that you read with an open heart; apply what you are learning, and determine to pray for your children, more consistently, more passionately, and more often.
“Praying for your Children” is an important book for every parent, church prayer group, and individual intercessor. Begin today to leave a legacy of prayer for the next generation, and those to follow.
