About the Book

Our families need prayer now more than ever. The US Census Bureau has determined that one-third of American millennials (ages 18–34) still live with their parents. Almost daily we are hearing reports on the news about the rise in drug use. Are you worried about the life choices your adult children are making? Are you helping or enabling your children? Do you question if God’s at work in their lives when you don’t see your prayers being answered?

This thirty-day devotional will help you learn to draw strength from God one day at a time. With over two hundred scriptural references, you are guided to rethink your approach to helping your adult children. By seeking God’s guidance, meditating on his promises, and having an open heart and open ears, let God give you direction in your relationship with your children. Each daily devotional covers a relevant topic, provides correlating scriptures, includes a sample prayer, and a Meditation Moment section. Then reflect on what you read, record in the Meditation Moment section what God is prompting you about, and pray how you can apply what you learned. God loves your children more than you do. Let him help you develop stronger, healthier relationships. We can’t change them, but God can! Be encouraged as you use this thirty-day devotional tool to help you grow in your faith and inspire you with new ways to improve your relationship with your adult children.
