“Being a parent is hard that’s why praying for your children is where you start. Good book.”

The Power of a Praying Parent has been a great resource for me as a single parent…many nights I turn the pages of this book and it guides me on how to best pray for my three daughters… they are now older and still need my prayers.  The illustrations in the chapters and the verses from the Bible help me make wise decisions concerning my children.  I have grown spiritually, and so have my daughters…making wise choices in their young lives.  Thank you for this book; I would consider this book a must read for every parent’s headboard…for easy access during those quiet (and maybe not so quiet) moments with the Lord!”

The Power of a Praying Parent was the best book made, thanks to Stormie Omartian. I can’t stop reading the book. Every time I have a problem with my children I use the book to keep me prayerful, and it works. I can’t wait to read the other books. It has brought me closer to knowing the Lord!”

“I have given this book out to at least 50 people. It brings the Bible into my prayer life which makes for a more God–pleasing prayer than a prayer of ‘God bless my children.’ It allows for a covering of God’s mercy on every aspect of their lives.”

“My wife and I don’t normally read books, but these books—The Power of a Praying Wife, The Power of a Praying Husband, and The Power of a Praying Parent—got us hooked on reading…It’s really a great blessing.”

“One day my husband and I were going to get the inspection sticker for our van.  I went inside to pay for the sticker and I looked over at their book rack and I saw The Power of a Praying Parent.  The first page I read was powerful and any other time I would put the book back and say, ‘I’ll buy it later,’ but this time nothing but the Holy Spirit led me to buy the book.  Your book has helped me in my study and prayer time with God.  Your book is so awesome and it’s all from the Divine Father above.”

“Read and Enjoy!”

“This book is incredible, and I still use it everyday during my quiet time.  I have two young–adult children, ages 24 and 27.”
