Praying for Your Child From Head to Toe

Sharon Jaynes

Our responsibilities as parents can feel overwhelming, especially when it comes to prayer. How do we know what to say? How can we truly pray for our kids rather than fall into a spiral of worry?

In Praying for Your Child from Head to Toe, bestselling author Sharon Jaynes encourages you to use Scripture to pray powerfully and purposely. This practical book equips you to:

  • Pray specific Scriptures over each area of your child’s life—from their mind and what they think about, to their eyes and what they look at, down to their feet and the path they take.
  • See prayer not as a way of making your child who you want them to be but a way of relinquishing control to who God wants them to be.
  • Overcome your feelings of inadequacy as an intercessor and become a prayer warrior who is expectant for what God will do.

No one will be a perfect parent, but we can all be praying parents who confidently pray for God’s protection and provision in the physical and spiritual realms. Use this prayer guide again and again, from birth to empty nest, as you confidently and effectively pray for God’s protection and provision over the ones you love most.

“In my early years as a mom, I learned that trusting God with my kids’ lives would need to be an intentional daily decision. Praying for them became my way of reminding myself that God is in control and I am not. This beautiful collection of biblically based prayers is what I needed back then and can still utilize today as I continue to pray for my grown children and grandchildren. My dear friend Sharon is a gift to parents everywhere with this timely guide that will help you cover your kids from head to toe!"
