Making Prayer the First and Best Response to Motherhood
"God, I need you to do something in my children!"
Have those words found their way into your desperate prayers? Do you feel helpless to know how to equip your children for this world and all it throws at them? If so, you're not alone.
When Brooke McGlothlin realized her best efforts were falling woefully short of her goal to produce godly children, she discovered the joy and power of praying Scripture over her family. Her life and her children's lives were transformed. Yours can be too.
Complete with prayers for specific situations, this encouraging book is perfect for times when you
· feel too busy to pray,
· don't know what or how to pray,
· don't know if your prayers really matter.
Nothing is more powerful and faith-building than praying God's Word for those you love. Become a mom full of hope in the God who can, even if you can't.

"Praying for our kids is both simpler than we make it and more important than we often realize. Inside these pages, Brooke will help you understand and live out both of those truths in your everyday life. Plus, the Scripture-inspired prayers are a true gift!"
Michelle Myers, founder of she works His way
"Few things in life can humble you like motherhood can. And yet, how often do we try to white-knuckle our way through it all? Read this gift of a book and learn how to clasp your hands together in a new way: in prayer and praise to the One who'll carry you through."
Hannah Anderson, author of Humble Roots: How Humility Grounds and Nourishes Your Soul
"Prayer comes naturally to some, but not to most. And because the words don't flow, or we think we need to follow a formula, we moms end up avoiding the most essential and transforming work we do on behalf of our kids. We don't pray. But Brooke has written a wonderful book that breaks it down and makes prayer not only feel possible but irresistible."
Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free and Don't Miss Out
