Review: When I Pray for You

When I Pray for You

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

From the best-selling author of When God Made You and When God Made Light comes a beautifully affirming, deeply meaningful prayer from a parent to a loving God, asking for God’s presence and comfort over the life of a child.

Something about seeing a beloved child come into the world, grow, and experience the wonder and pain of life drives adults to pray for the kids they love. Even people with no religious affiliation will pray for the well-being of a child. When I Pray for You celebrates the dreams, hopes, and longings we pray over our children, and shares with the little ones how much care, concern, and love a parent, family member, or friend feels for them.

From the moment I saw you, 
I started to pray.
Big prayers and small ones 
I have sent God’s way.

I prayed you felt safe, 
full of joy and content.
When I whispered “I love you,”
you knew what I meant.

Review:

When I Pray for You by Matthew Paul Turner is a beautifully written and illustrated book for children. A prayer for one’s child as it grows up is one that is much needed. It was sweet and inspiring. This book showed a mother’s love for her child throughout the pages. It was hard not to love this story. The words and prayer over a child filled me with a lot of emotions. A parent’s love in this book was deep, heartfelt, and powering. It could be seen on each illustrated page. The illustrations were bright and colorful; easy to follow along. Parents can easily enjoy reading this to their children. As they too, want their child to experience safety, love, and joy each and every day. No matter how big they grow that love never diminishes. And neither do the prayers. Overall, I loved reading this book. I recommend it to all parents.
