Prayer makes a transformative difference in the lives of those for whom we pray and in the lives of those who pray.
Virginia Beach, VA (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
Within her new book, Surround Your College Child with Prayer, ($10.99, paperback, 9781609570040; $5.49, e-book, 9781624192388) Donna Jordan opens parents’ eyes to the spiritual threats that every college-bound young man or woman will inevitably face. As a devoted praying mom, she has witnessed and overcome these obstacles first-hand, and she writes to equip others to do the same. The author points out that it is truly vital to pray for our children in every area of their lives—as a result, they will have the absolute best, and become the people that God created them to be.
“Prayer makes a transformative difference in the lives of those for whom we pray and in the lives of those who pray,” states the author. “I hope that parents learn that Jesus can be trusted with their children, and that He can be trusted to give them peace in all circumstances as they pray for their children.”
As a young woman, Donna Jordan was impressed with the importance of praying for her child and her parenting before she became pregnant. That importance intensified as her child grew through many varied phases and stages of life. The imperative to pray more specifically began when she saw disturbing and distressing behaviors from young people while visiting her son at college. It intensified further as she learned of the secularism being thrust upon him from some of his professors. She had always professed to trust God with her son; however, that trust was now being severely tested. She had to make a choice—hide from/avoid what she was seeing, and the concerns these things engendered while hoping and praying it would be okay, or tackle it in consistent prayer. She chose focused, consistent prayer, and then watched, with a grateful heart, as God worked mightily.
