Book Review: Praying Circles Around Your Children by Mark Batterson


Mark Batterson shares a perfect blend of biblical yet practical advice that will revolutionize your prayer life by giving you a new vocabulary and a new methodology. You’ll see how prayer is your secret weapon. Through stories of parents just like you, Batterson shares five prayer circles that will not only help you pray for your kids, but also pray through your kids.
Batterson teaches about how to create prayer lists unique to your family, claim God-inspired promises for your children, turn your family circle into a prayer circle, and discover your child’s life themes. And he not only tells you how, he illustrates why.
As Batterson says, ‘I realize that not everyone inherited a prayer legacy like I did, but you can leave a legacy for generations to come. Your prayers have the power to shape the destiny of your children and your children’s children. It’s time to start circling.’

I was so happy when Zondervan asked me to review this book for them, and they sent me a free copy over the holidays!

This was a quick and easy read, a real delight for a mother’s heart.  The price for this pocketbook is so reasonable and with only 103 small pages to peruse, you can really gain a lot of wisdom and ideas in the short amount of time it takes to read through this gem.  I loved the promises and stories that were highlighted from the Bible, I loved the confidence it gave me to keep praying, not give up, and expect amazing things from God – in His timing and His will.  I can truly trust the One who gave me my children to love and raise up to be godly men.
