The most important parenting skill to hone is prayer. Prayer has no boundaries. It is bound neither by time nor geography. The power of prayer can reach across the miles and can extend into the future.
In Legacy of Prayer, Author Jennifer Kennedy Dean offers principles for praying for our children, our grandchildren, and our descendants. In candid descriptions of her own life as the beneficiary of generations of prayer, she acknowledges that prayer for our children will not insure a smooth road but instead will insure that " . . . nothing will happen to our children that God cannot use as the raw material from which to create a vessel for His mercy." With characteristically clear and precise writing, she leads us into the Scripture to discover the power of prayer that reaches into the lives of generations not yet born.
