Reviews - What do customers think about Divine Prayers For Despairing Parents?
Courtesy of Teens Read Too Nov 13, 2009
Mostly aimed at distraught parents, DIVINE PRAYERS FOR DESPAIRING PARENTS is a helpful guide to parents who have reached their last straw.
Broken up into chapters that combine similar topics, this book shares with discouraged parents guidance, hope, and encouraging words. Each section shares stores from coping parents on issues that concern them regarding their children. After each story, the author shares a relevant Scripture passage (some obscure, others easily recognizable) as well as generic prayers that parents can recite to God for guidance and reassurance.
The book covers various topics and parents will be able to relate to most of them. Parents show concern over their child's wild ways, depressed ways, lack or loss of faith, and many other issues. It's by acknowledging that they are not alone in their concerns that they will be able to find comfort in the prayers and Scripture presented in this book.
As I stated, it is mostly aimed at parents, but insightful teens will also find the information relevant and helpful. They will learn that their behaviors are not unique and that there is hope where they may feel that there is nothing but blackness. If shared between parents and teenagers, the prayers may bring them closer together with each other, as well as with God.

Finally help for hurting parents of wild children Jul 13, 2009
This book addresses an issue that is long overdue. Wild children break your heart in a silent pain that you don't discuss with many. I know because I have been there. The written prayers where you fill in your child's name is an added bonus. Sometimes my agony was so deep, I was not sure what to pray. Thank God for Susanne and her book that makes parents feel they are not alone. Anyone with a prodigal child should buy this book and keep it handy.
