A Mom's Prayers for Her Son by Rob and Joanna Teigen

From the moment your little boy was born, you knew you were going to be doing a lot of praying. So you may wonder, What exactly should I be praying for?
Now the authors of A Dad's Prayers for His Daughter show you how to pray for every area of your son's life. Rob and Joanna Teigen give you a strong foundation to build a lifelong habit of prayer for your son with a collection of specific prayers you can use to get started right now. With engaging stories from well-known authors such as Kathi Lipp, Pam Farrel, Lisa Samra, and others, you'll learn how to pray for your son's development of character, courage, self-control, forgiveness, and more. 

Remember: you may not always understand your son, but God does! Start asking for his guidance, protection, and blessings today.

Where to Purchase:

Read and Excerpt
Rob and Joanna Teigen are the authors of 88 Great Daddy-Daughter Dates and A Dad's Prayers for His Daughter. Rob is also the author of several joke books, including Laugh-Out-Loud Jokes for Kids (under the pseudonym Rob Elliott). The Teigens are the parents of a son in college, a son in preschool, and three beautiful daughters in between and live in West Michigan.

I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest opinion. NO other compensation given.

My Thoughts:
I was thrilled when this book came out and I had the opportunity to read it. Not only do I have a son, but I also have quite a few grandsons. So many times as a mom and Nana I have a difficult time understanding and relating to them. Yet I am incredibly blessed to know God loves them all, and He created each the way He wanted them to be. So as I pray, not only will He be working in their lives, but also helping me to better love and understand them.

This book is full of wonderful ideas and Scriptures of things to pray about for your son. Also incorporated are short stories that will give encouragement to your  heart. As things come up, I find myself turning the pages and looking for Scriptures I can use to pray about a particular area of his life. A few areas that really stood out to me:

  • When he needs wisdom
  • When his faith is shaken
  • When he needs self-control
  • When he's bored
  • When he's competitive
There is so much more, with over 10 life areas to pray about - this book covers ALOT! If you have a son or grandson - you will certainly want to get a copy or give a copy. We can never pray too much for our children. 

Just this past spring, I reviewed the Teigen's book - A Dad's Prayers for His Daughter. It was also a blessing to me.
