Because God Loves Them Even More Than You Do Â Itâ€™s our instinct as parents to shield our children from harm. But our true responsibility is to raise children equipped to live well for God even in the midst of struggle. Upside-Down Prayers for Parents encourages us to pray for our children in ways we may never have before: Â â€˘ I pray youâ€™ll get caught doing things wrongâ€”and experience the power of confession. â€˘ I pray your prayers will go unansweredâ€”and youâ€™ll find a deeper trust in Him. â€˘ I pray youâ€™ll fail in things that donâ€™t matterâ€”and learn what matters to God. â€˘ I pray youâ€™ll encounter battlesâ€”and discover that God is your greatest ally. Â By turning our prayers â€śupside down,â€ť we not only learn to release our children to the care of God alone, we also uncover how our own desires need to be submitted to Godâ€™s will. Â Each entry in this thirty-one-day devotional includes a short reflection, a Scripture verse, and ideas to jump-start conversations between you and your child or teenager. Together youâ€™ll discover a deeper trust in God that will help you make it through the upside-down times with a right-side-up perspective.
