Praying for Boys {Review}

Do you ever find that you're just at the end of your rope with "those boys?"  Are they constantly pushing buttons and finding your weakness?  Do you know there's more, but just don't know where to start?

Raising two boys myself, I know the Lord has more for them, but I don't know how to get there.  And in my own weakness, I know I certainly can't get there on my own.  But how do I begin praying for them?  I know prayer is the answer, but where in the world do I start?

Broken into 21 virtues to pray for your boys, McGlothlin's book works well as a daily prayer guide.  Each virtue is clearly defined and illustrated with real life stories and includes 10 scriptures to pray into that specific area.  The sections of the book are short and make for a quick morning devotional and I find myself laying the book out through the day to pray scripture over my boys as the day goes. 

Included in the back of the book is also a helpful guide for developing your own prayer group whether online or in real life.

Waging war in pray is the most valuable thing we can do for our children.  And this book provides useful tools for heading in the right direction.  McGlothin's book is one I find myself reaching for again and again, and certainly a powerful director in my parenting journey.
