A few months ago, someone recommended a book to me to aid in my daily prayer life. It was during a talk about praying for and with your children. I pray for a lot of people, but it immediately struck me that I didn't regularly pray for my children. If they were sick or having a hard time, sure, but it wasn't something I made a regular habit of doing.
The book While they were sleeping, by Gary Harrell and Anne Arkins, is a "prayer guide designed to help moms pray for 12 character traits to be built into a child's life." I received this book as a Christmas gift, per my letter to Santa, and I absolutely love it. There are 5 daily devotions for each character trait with short scripture readings and prayers to say for your children. It takes no more than 5 minutes a day and I normally can do it when I am nursing Baby B first thing in the morning.
Every time I use this book, I inevitably find a golden nugget to take with me through my day. For instance, on Day 2 of "Kindness" one of the Scriptures is Proverbs 15:1 "A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." This is a great verse to keep with you especially if you have a feisty 2 year old like I do!
If you are looking for an easy prayer book to guide you through a devotion for your children every day, this is a great one. I highly recommend it, and I was not solicited to review this book by anyone. I did it out of the kindness of my heart!
