As parents of adult children, we often wonder: Will my children make good choices when they're on their own? How can I let them go when I've held them for so long?
Parent and author Jodie Berndt understands what it's like to release children into the world and still care deeply about them and everything they will face in life. In Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children, Jodie continues her Praying the Scriptures series with biblical prayers for your adult children, whether they are just leaving the nest, flying well on their own, or struggling to take off at all.
Each section focuses on a different aspect of adulthood, with encouraging stories from experienced parents who are praying their children through real-life issues, including:
Living together before marriage
Leaving the church
With grace and wisdom, Jodie demonstrates how to keep praying long-term, even as we doubt ourselves and grieve over our children's choices.
Whatever you are praying for, you will find confidence and peace in these powerful prayers for your kids and for yourself taken straight from Scripture. Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children guides you to the bedrock of God's promises as you release your children to God's shepherding care.
