She is passionate and authentic. I heard her speak about her passion for praying God’s Word over her two boys, and I thought, Why am I not doing that more?
So when she announced she had written an eBook called Warrior Prayers: Praying the Word for Boys in the Areas They Need it Most, based on her passion, I knew I had to read it. I bought a copy and read it in one sitting, and I hope you will do the same, MOBs!
This eBook briefly chronicles how Brooke came to the Lord over and over for her boys out of desperation. She realized that the “battle for their hearts would be best fought on [her] knees” (paraphrase). So she kept praying from Scripture and developed a passion to share her “Warrior Prayers” with other MOBs.
The eBook also contains an invaluable collection of the prayers Brooke uses to pray over her sons, broken up by 21 categories, such as Obedience, Gentleness, Pride, and Salvation. Let me tell you that I prayed for my son that night. And I hadn’t prayed for him in days.
Brad and I have been praying a certain prayer over Samuel since he was born, a prayer for him to be a strong man who loves God and points other people to Him. As Sam gets older, I know I will encounter more challenges as a mom-discipler than I can imagine and will need to seek God often.
But I’m going to start now. Because I need these prayers as much as Samuel does. I need to orient my heart towards what God wants for him, rather than what I want. Instead of wanting him to be well-educated, successful, and athletic, I shall want him to be a man who seeks after the heart and character of God.
I hope that you will join me. And Brooke. I’m excited to announce that she’s hosting 21 Days of Prayers for Sons beginning April 1. I’ll be committing to praying each day for my son.
