Upside Down Prayers for Parents

Upside-Down Prayers for Parents by Lisa T. Bergren has 31 devotions that contain prayers you can pray for your children as they experience life.  The author shares how, as parents, we tend to shield our children from harm when we should really be equipping them to trust God even in the midst of trials.
Each day starts with a sentence prayer with a scripture verse.  This is followed by the author's devotional thought, a longer prayer to read out loud, and then she gives suggestions for making it personal (where you can journal), and also suggestions for making it relevant for your age child.
I found this book to be very comforting and insightful as to putting my thoughts into words for my children.  I have definitely had times where I had no idea how to approach my child with what he or she was going through and I can see where this book will be a great help in the future.
Disclosure: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
