Book Review: A Mom's Prayers for Her Son by Rob & Joanna Teigen

Praying for our children is one of the most important things (if not the most important) we can do for them. I have two sons and one daughter. I pray for them everyday. Prayer is my lifeline in raising my children. I love this book! A Mom's Prayers for Her Son covers prayers for every area of your son's life. There are 77 topics in the book such as When He's Falling into Addiction, When His Faith Is Shaken, When He's in the Wrong Crowd, When He's Feeling Depressed, and When I Don't Know What to Pray. The topics are all related to what a young man may face or struggle with spiritually, socially, emotionally, and relationally. Self-control. Anger. Courage. Pride. Doubts. Competitiveness. Rebellion. The book also includes encouraging stories from moms about how God has answered their prayers for their sons. God knows our son(s) best and loves them more than we can ever imagine so it's wise for us to ask Him for help, wisdom, guidance, protection, etc.

Each topic begins with Scriptures. Each prayer is Biblically-grounded and filled with love and faith. When I pray these prayers in the book, I often include my daughter, too, since most prayers can be applied to daughters. I highly recommend this helpful book to every praying mom who has a son and every praying grandma who has a grandson!
