The Power of Praying for Your Adult Children

Stormie Omartian, Author . Harvest House $13.99 (240p) ISBN 97

Omartian offers a follow-up to her million-plus seller The Power of a Praying Parent , focusing this time on praying for adult children. “The truth is,” says Omartian, “you never stop being a parent who deeply cares about your child's well-being, no matter what age they are....” She offers 14 things to pray for adult children, including that they find freedom, restoration and wholeness; have a sound mind and right attitude; and be protected and survive in tough times. Each chapter includes Prayer Power—a brief, specific prayer—and Word Power, Scripture verses pertaining to the topic. Fans of Omartian will find more of her chatty, personal style mixed with lists and myriad subtopics throughout; new readers may be put off by repetition and that same chattiness. But all readers will know that Omartian's heart is dedicated to prayer, God's redemptive love and a healthy future for all adult children: “by praying, we can help them to hear from God so He can lead them to do what He wants.” (July 1)
