The Power of a Praying Parent

This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green examines The Power of a Praying Parent by Stormie Omartin.


Any amount of fear and anxiety can be found in many homes today as families try to navigate these uncertain waters. But first and foremost, we must remind ourselves of two things:

First, God is still on the throne, still in control, and all things work together for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose.

Second, being a perfect parent doesn’t matter… it never did. But, being a praying parent does… and always has.

Amid all the craziness surrounding our world today, why leave your child’s life to chance when you can give it to God?

Award-winning singer and songwriter Stormie Omartian and her husband, Michael, spent 20 years raising their children and learning the power of praying for them. The knowledge they gleaned resulted in one of the most treasured and worn books in my library, The Power of a Praying Parent. In 30 short, easy-to-read chapters, Stormie shares how you can pray through every age and stage of your child’s life.

So come be a part, as we learn how to turn to the Father and place every detail of our child’s life in His loving and capable hands: Their safety, friends, character development, relationship with God, peer pressure, family relationships, school, marriage, career, and much, much more.
