A Devotional Study In today's world, the basic building blocks of a Christian world view are often missing in people's lives. To help fill in this missing information, Boa and Turner present a foundational, clear synthesis of the most significant narratives of the Bible along with the implications and applications of these interrelated stories. They present the big story in such a way that it will: (1) Connect the dots for readers of the Bible, demonstrating how each individual story is really one chapter in the larger story; (2) Show how Jesus is the point to the story, especially his death and resurrection; and (3) Build a biblical world view by showing how the Bible answers the ultimate questions of life.
Most Christian parents pray for their children, but many don’t know how to pray effectively and powerfully. Now, from the coauthor of A Woman's Guide to Spiritual Warfare and The Spiritual Warrior's Prayer Guide, comes this step-by-step guide to praying faithfully and diligently for precious sons and daughters. The first step is to surrender growing children to the Lord, who longs to partner with parents to raise godly women and men. Then, once parents have invited the Holy Spirit into their child’s growth and development, they can pray for their child’s specific needs. Readers will learn how to pray for their children’s friends, teachers and pastors, and to intercede when their sons or daughters are under spiritual attack. Stepparents and adoptive parents will find prayer guidance for their special circumstances, and mothers and fathers of severely ill children will discover how to pray through the most difficult situations a parent can face. When moms and dads covenant with God to be a household of faith, they will see Him act in their children’s lives beyond what they could ever dream!
