Pray Big For Your Child - Will Davis, Jr

Subtitle of this book is - The power of praying God's promises for your child's life. The author is pastor of Austin Christian Fellowship, a father of 3, and the author of other books on prayer. This one is more specific on praying for our children to help them to become all that God wants them to be. Will introduces the concept of pinpoint prayers, which are specific prayers based on scripture that go beyond the "God, bless my child" general prayers.He calls them BHAP, big, hairy, audacious prayers.

The author has included specific chapters on parents of sons and daughters.There are also chapters on praying for the influences and mentors your child will have in their lives.  It was interesting to read the author's views on Daniel and the circumstances he found himself in and the stand he took as a young man in Daniel 1: 12-20. Could our young sons take a same stand? Also included are a month's supply of pinpoint prayers as examples and praying for your child throughout the day.
I would recommend this book to parents of children of any age, especially parents of younger children. It will be on my list as a recommended book for parents.
This book was provided by the publisher at no cost to me.
