No one ever stops being a mom or a dad. So when our children become adults, we still worry about them—and want to care for them. One way we can still care for them is to lift them up in prayer. When we do so, God’s love for them—and for us—is unleashed. We are able to replace our concern with a love that comes from the heart of God. Our Father moves mountains of worry and discouragement, leaving new refreshment and delight in its place. This book is designed for parents who want to pray for their adult sons and daughters with the kind of power that makes a real difference in matters of the heart.
• Gives parents hope, encouragement, and a renewed commitment to pray and to relate lovingly to their adult sons and daughters.
• Addresses the desire to be a better parent and shows how parents can best pray for specific needs.
• Each chapter ends with a series of questions for reflection and introduces a “prayer skill” that will enable parents to persist in prayer and try new ways of praying for their adult sons and daughters.
