Prayer Warrior Mom Review

I think if you are a mother, you are constantly saying prayers. I bet even if you aren't a Christian, you pray things like, "Oh God, please don't let me have to tear her tail up in public!" or "Oh Lord, please keep him safe now that he's bought that darn motorcycle!" But seriously, if you are a parent and a Christian, it is part of your duty as a parent to be a prayer warrior for your child. That's why I wanted to read this book, "Prayer Warrior Mom" by Marla Alupoaicei. I know my parents prayed (and still do pray) for me throughout my life and it's so important to do that, I need all the pointers I can get on improving my prayer life.

The book itself is a very easy read. Alupoaicei has created chapters that are all on subjects we really need to learn more about - thankfulness, praying scriptures, interceding, fasting, loving your prayer life, being an advocate for your child, and hearing God's voice above all else, just to name a few. Each chapter is so relevant, you will find yourself nodding along while reading certain parts that apply to you personally.

I'm not sure this is the best book on prayer I've ever read. But I like that it is geared toward mothers. And it includes a daily prayer with each chapter, scriptures that relate to each chapter, and even small group discussion questions. It would be a great book to read with a friend or two and discuss with each other, or hold each other accountable with your prayer lives.

I would certainly recommend this book to mothers, particularly those with younger children or those with children who are in a... shall we say... difficult phase of life. It will be an encouragement to continue in prayer even when you don't feel heard.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
