Review of The Power of a Praying Grandparent
Stormie Omartian has a little gem of a book in The Power of a Praying Grandparent. As anyone who is blessed with grandchildren knows these little children are one of the greatest gifts God can bestow on us. The privilege of getting to know and love these little creatures is one of life’s greatest joys. Bestowing our love and experience can be of great value to each individual child. But as Stormie Omartian so beautifully points out, one of the greatest gifts we can give our grandchildren beside our love and time is our heartfelt prayers. This is especially true if we do not have the pleasure of their company on a regular basis. Our prayers can be sent up no matter where they are and the Lord will hear them and our grandchildren will feel them. The Power of a Praying Grandparent imparts practical wisdom and knowledge of how prayers from a grandparent can impact their lives, the parents’ lives and our lives as well. This book is also filled with sound advice on how to be a loving support to their parents. As we all know the parents bare most of the burden for rearing and financially supporting our grandchildren. Except in a few rare cases, we get to have most of the fun and less of the stress. That is why our prayers are so important. That is the one fundamental gift we can give that will keep on giving.
I really loved this book. It was so beautifully written with heartfelt and spiritual advice. It left you with no doubt of the importance of our prayers for our grandchildren and not just for their safety in a crazy world, but for spiritual growth and intellectual development as well. Stormie Omartian covers a wide range of reasons to pray that the reader might never think of such as, honoring their parents, teaching them to show their love to God and each other, resisting rebellion and temptation and finding like-minded friends just to name a few. What I really appreciated about the book was her beautiful prayer and scripture reflections at the end of each particular topic. It gave to me a way to put what I read and felt in my heart into words. It was a delightful way to end each chapter.
As a grandparent I can honestly say The Power of a Praying Grandparent is a must read for every grandparent out there. It is filled with love and knowledge on the importance of our prayers for the little ones or grown ones we care so much for. If you are a prayer warrior or a novice at getting down on your knees this book is for you. This book can give you a multitude of reasons to pray and assist you with prayers for each and every gift you would like to impart on you grandchildren. You will not be disappointed. Keep it by your bedside table or your favorite chair and after you have read it open it once a day to send up a prayer. Your children and grandchildren will thank you for it.
I want to thank Harvest House Publishers via NetGalley for an advanced copy of The Power of a Praying Grandparent by Stormie Omartian for a fair and honest review.
