Prayer for all the aspects of a daughter’s life can feel like an insurmountable hill to climb. The new book: A Dad’s Prayers for His Daughter breaks prayer needs into 88 very relatable and realistic prayers. Just glancing through the intriguing prayer topics made me feel like I was opening a treasure trove.
Then as I got into reading them/praying them, I was blown away by the awesomeness of it all. These authors understand so much of what girls go through. If you need help praying, this would be an excellent resource. But, another exciting thing about this book is that we can learn a lot about how to think about our daughters and how to understand them, as well.
Interspersed among the prayers are over fifteen stories (for lack of a better word) that are just pricelessly fascinating. I highly recommend this book as a resource and it is a pleasure to read it and use it. The cover shows a young girl and her dad – the girl looks about eight, but I have girls in their late teens and this book is so great for their issues, so don’t be put off by the youngness of the cover model.
As an afterthought, I’d like to list some of the really awesome prayer topics: When She’s Angry, When She’d Rejected, When She’s Worried, When She’s Proud, When She’s Depressed, When She’s Falling into Addiction, When She Needs to Laugh.
