Upside-Down Prayers for Parents
Thirty-One Daring Devotions for Entrusting Your...
Because God Loves Them Even More Than You Do It’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: • I pray you’ll get caught doing things wrong—and experience the power of confession. • I pray your prayers will go unanswered—and you’ll find a deeper trust in Him. • I pray you’ll fail in things that don’t matter—and learn what matters to God. • I pray you’ll encounter battles—and discover that God is your greatest ally. By turning our prayers “upside down,” 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 God’s will. 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 you’ll discover a deeper trust in God that will help you make it through the upside-down times with a right-side-up perspective.

Will I get to see you in heaven? Papa patiently answers each question, assuring her that… “Heaven will be full of everything good.” This gentle story provides satisfying answers for a young child’s most difficult questions about what happens after this life, inviting “little cubs” to find comfort in knowing that God Gave Us Heaven.
