How a Man Prays for His Family
91 in stock
This is a book for men. Nothing causes a man to realize the great responsibilities of manhood any more than having a family of his own.
Whether you are newly married, the father of rapidly growing children, or a grandfather, you carry responsibility for the well-being of your family. They look to you as a provider, protector, and guide. Even the wisest man sometimes feels out of his depth in knowing how to love and provide for his family well and most of us are driven to our knees in seeking God’s help.
That’s the point at which this book begins - where a man honestly reaches out to his Maker for wisdom, guidance, and strength. Prayer is not often easy for men, but learning to pray enables a man to have real communion with God, to learn from God, and to draw on the resources of the Almighty.
- You will discover simple, practical advice that will help you start—or maybe renew—your experience of prayer. It will help you to:
- Begin to pray more thoughtfully for your family - Overcome the typical “start and stall” of prayer to establish life-changing habits
- Experience prayer as a means of gaining strength and insight
- Lean into the power of God.
It is a brief book, an honest book, and a practical book that is written just for men and especially for men who want to love their families well.
