Prayer Warrior Mom, by Marla Alupoaicei
I recently had the chance to review a copy of Prayer Warrior Mom. Here are my thoughts on the book!
Moms, are you struggling with patience? Worrying about your children’s spiritual development? Concerned about their social or behavioral issues? Wondering how to get it all done when there’s just never enough time?
Author Marla Alupoaicei knows that today’s Christian moms want to be the parents God intended. They desire to pray boldly and stand in the gap for their kids. But many mothers haven’t been equipped with the prayer skills, scriptural knowledge, and practical strategies to fight the spiritual battle for themselves and their children.
I was really looking forward to reading this book because I know that my prayer life needs work. I used to be so good at praying naturally just throughout the day, as though I constantly had God on the line. In the last several years I’ve realized how much I tend to forget to pray. I was hoping to find some encouragement and tips about strengthening my prayer life.
I did find this book to contain useful and helpful information. I did have a hard time really getting into it, though. Maybe it’s just because I’ve been really busy lately but this wasn’t one of those books that is hard to put down. In fact, I felt like finishing the book was difficult. It wasn’t boring and didn’t contain bad information, I just had a hard time connecting with the author I suppose.
At the end of each chapter, Marla shares a prayer relating to the chapter’s topic, Scripture verses, and discussion questions which can be used in a group setting or for personal study and reflection.
With all said and done, I think I would rate this book maybe 3.5 on a scale of 5. Like I said, there was some good information and there were points made that got me thinking. Other things I didn’t quite agree with. The book is well organized and I did like the prayer, Scripture, and discussion questions.Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com® book review bloggers program.
