This book was very challenging to read. As a mother, I want to pray prayers of protection over my children. Prayers for health, wisdom, drawing closer to the Lord, keeping safe, learning well. I will continue to pray those prayers for my children. However, I liked the different angle that the author approached praying for our children.
In some situations I can see praying these upside down prayers. Hard situations.
The entire book put a different light on praying for your children. Although some of the prayers I could never bring myself to pray for my children, the message behind each one that she shares is definitely something I could pray.
I could pray for them to know forgiveness and be able to forgive...but I do not think I could pray for them to HAVE to have done something that needed forgiving. For one thing, I know we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God...so I don't have to pray that they will! :)
I did think the book was very different from any other parenting devotional book I read, and I think it has much value if taken in the right spirit.
