Reviews - What do our customers think?
Let's think about this....  Feb 14, 2005
"Highlights" of this book:
parents who believe that they cured their son's rebellious behaviours by playing Christian music in his room while he was at school;
a man who, not having parents who prayed for him, turned away from God's call to the ministry and subsequently suffered the breaking up of his marriage and the death of his child;
the time Mrs. Omartian taught her son to stop lying by lying to him (see the Case of the Broken Window and her use of equivocation);
Mr. and Mrs. Omartian's belief that they can "pray their children through" colds and the flu but must consult a doctor for more serious illnesses;
the assertion that we can forbid the Devil access to our children's lives by praying, to include praying that they not become homosexuals, or fat;
Mrs. Omartian's belief that her children freely accepted Jesus when they were five years old.
And there is much more. I submit that too much of this book consists of anecdotal evidence, gross generalizations, wishful thinking, and wilful ignorance of plain facts for it to be useful to serious inquirers.
Starts off strong, then goes downhill from there  Mar 11, 2004
After hearing so many excellent reviews of this book, my Bible study group decided to base our study and discussion on this book and study guide. We're all parents of young kids, so we thought this would be perfect. At first, we were all interested and favorable about the material in the book....until we got past the first few chapters. The author makes a big deal about giving control of your life and your children to God, which we all agreed with. Then, she spends the rest of the book essentially giving God directions via prayer on every single aspect (and I mean EVERYTHING!) of her kids' lives. For example, instead of praying for her kids' safety, she would list off every possible thing bad that could happen to them in her prayer and pray that none of those things would happen. We were all surprised at the level of minutiae that she prayed about. It's almost as if she thinks if she doesn't specifically instruct Him on what to do, He won't know to do it. I guess our group gives Him a little more credit than that. We also felt that after the first couple of chapters, the rest of the book was just a rehash of the same stuff. It felt as if she was grasping to get enough material to make a whole book so that she can collect her $10 a copy. In most chapters, the prayer at the end of the chapter was longer than the chapter!

The study guide was rather dull and did a poor job of promoting any group discussion or provoking any deep thoughts. Many questions were something like "Do you believe that prayer can have powerful changes in your life?". Well, who in a Christian group of people studying the Bible is going to say no?? So, everyone would respond "Yes" and then sit there looking at each other.....and this is a group that usually has very spirited discussions. We ended up pretty much ignoring the study guide in order to have any meaningful or interesting conversation.

After struggling through several weeks of studying this book, my entire group unanimously decided to abandon it and choose a different author and book. While we're glad that there are people out there who have been inspired and helped by this book, none of us fit in that category. Anyone interested in some used copies? :)

I would highly recommend this book to any parent  Feb 7, 2004
Whether your child is 1 or 50, or you are praying for a friends child, niece or nephew, this book's for you. The chapters are short and to the point, it covers just about everything, and there is a prayer at the end of each chapter. It is a book I could read again and again.
The Most Dog-Eared, Beat-Up Book I Own  Oct 3, 2003
This book is always right where I can find it. It is highlighted, underlined, tattered, and beat. No other book reminds me more of how much I need God's help parenting, and how much our children need our intercessory prayers for them. It's not a book of "magic formulas," but a book of hope and love. And often, when we are stressed about a situation, it is hard to find the "right" way to pray...well, naturally there is no one right way, but Stormie's book helps me to clear my head and focus on the issues that need attention. I'll be forever grateful for this book.
over-simplification  Jan 2, 2003
Stormie Omartian's book is easy to read, easy to understand, and easy to implement into one's own life. However, the lack of specificity misleads one into thinking that prayer can be a quick and easy fix for any parental situation. Not the case at all. It's faith that does all the work, and no prayer in this book will generate the faith necessary for psychological healing. That, my friends, comes from within.
