Every daughter wants her Dad to pray for her and this is the perfect guide to help get you started...
A Dad's Prayers for His Daughter
Praying for Every Part of Her Life
By Rob and Joanna Teigen
A Dad's Prayers for His Daughter is a guide to help dads know how to pray for specific issues in the lives of their daughters. The issues cover loneliness, modesty, personal identity, doubting God, and much more.
Each issue is introduced with a two or three passages of Scripture and followed by a prayer asking for God's help guidance in the life of both father and daughter in dealing with this issue.
Interspersed throughout these 88 prayers are A Dad's Story in which different fathers share their experiences with their own daughters. These are touching moments that show how unique each father/daughter experience is and how important it is for God to be at the heart of this relationship.
There is another aspect of this book that I really liked, they are Her....(Blessings, Protection, Idols, Purity, etc.). This section deals with certain issues and offers words of encouragement and guidance to Dad as they seek to guide their daughters while seeking God's will for them.
While this book is geared towards Dad, Mom is sure to find some important truths and helps when praying for her daughters. I can even see this book being an integral part of the family devotion time as the prayers are adapted for each family's unique situation. With this guidance Dad can take his place as a spiritual head in his family.
This is the perfect gift for any Dad of daughters, or even a Dad-to-be. After all what could be more important than to learn how to pray for every aspect of your daughter's life and for God's will in it? This book would be a great addition to the family home library or your church library.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell in exchange for my honest and timely review.
