Praying for Boys

Asking God For The Things They Need Most


Brooke McGlothlin

About (from the publishers website):

What Are Your Biggest Concerns for Your Son?

Instead of trying harder to change your boy’s behavior or worrying about his future, enjoy the peace that comes when you pray specific prayers for him straight from the Bible. This encouraging book helps you target your prayers on what your son needs most–from patience and self-control to having a pure heart and making wise decisions.
Today you can start giving whatever concerns you have to God and
– learn to fight for your son’s heart in prayer
– look at raising boys as a gift
– see how even quick prayers make a difference
– understand boys’ deepest struggles, no matter their age
– rest in knowing that God is the only One who can change your son’s heart

Written for moms but great for dads (and grandparents) too, this easy-to-use book is filled with uplifting stories and biblical wisdom that will equip you on your journey to raising a godly man.

Includes a 21-Day Prayer Guide for Small Groups, in Person or Online!

My thoughts:

I loved this book. From the first paragraph I knew Brooke was a mom who gets me. Who isn’t perfect but is doing her best to raise Godly men, which is what all of us moms want, right?

I really like the way to book was set up. It starts with a few chapters that talk about how this book came to be and how to use it. After that it is followed by very short chapters with ten prayers, that come directly from scripture, for you to pray over your boys.

I’ll be honest, I used this book for my whole family. I prayed it over my son, my daughter, my husband and me. It’s so powerful to put your child’s name in verse and pray over them.

It’s your choice how you want to use the book. I am choosing to pray one verse over my child for a couple of days and then move onto the next. But you can customize it to your liking.

If you struggle with exactly what to pray for your boy this book is a great starting point.
