The concept of praying through Scripture is one that many people have become acquainted with but using this concept may be a different story. Author, Maureen Thomas, has taken this concept to heart and prepared this devotional-style book as an example of praying through the Bible. Each day’s prayers are focused on a specific book of the Bible. A pattern rotates through prayers for yourself—Personal—and your family—Children, Son, and Daughter.
The idea for this book came as a result of the author being awakened during the night with the urgent impression to pray for her adult daughter. A couple of days later, her daughter was tragically killed in a car accident. Knowing that many parents agonize in prayer for their children, whether young or grown, she set about to compile 229 prayers drawn from each of the sixty-six books of the Bible.
“Dear parent, is your heart burdened over the waywardness of your child or children? Is it constantly afflicted by worry and concern over their noncommittal attitudes toward their Maker? Then pray. Intercede with God, for He is able to do exceedingly more abundantly than we can think or ask. Meditate on Isaiah 49:25, ‘But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.’ Claim it and believe it.”
