Pray for your adult sons and daughters with the kind of power that makes a real difference in matters of the heart!
When our children become adults, we can’t hold them on our laps and protect them like we used to. We need new strategies for caring for them. And the most important strategy of all is to lift up our adult sons and daughters in prayer and place them in the heart of God. When we do so, God’s love is unleashed—in them and in us. God can replace our worries and discouragement with refreshment and hope. This book is a real treasure, one that parents and grandparents will want to read again and again.
Each chapter ends with a series of questions for reflection and introduces a “prayer skill” that will enable parents to persist in prayer and try new ways of praying for their adult sons and daughters.
“Parents and grandparents will find the Bouchers to be experienced guides in the art of praying for grown children. If you are wondering how to pray your adult children through the ups and downs of life, read this spiritually rich, practical, hopeful, and beautifully written book.”
—Sherry Weddell, Co-Director, Catherine of Siena Institute, Colorado Springs
“The multiple stories and anecdotes presented by John and Therese will grab the reader because we are all beset with similar circumstances that call for prayer. In this book, the prayer of petition and intercession comes alive through the context of our everyday relationships.”
—Frank DeSiano, CSP, President, Paulist Evangelization Ministries, Washington, D.C.
