Praying for Girls


Praying for Girls: Asking God for the Things They Need Most by Teri Lynne Underwood is a gem of a book, full of prayers tailored specifically for girls. The book includes five sections: Prayers for Her Identity, Prayers for Her Heart, Prayers for Her Mind, Prayers for Her Relationships, and Prayers for Her Purpose.

My favorite section was Prayers for Her Mind, which has chapters focusing on renewal, peacefulness, guarding one’s mind, and setting one’s mind on things above. Each chapter includes several prayers along with relevant devotional-style text.  As the author uses anecdotes from her own life, she gives the book a personal flair. I like how Underwood adds a “Girl Talk” section to the end of each chapter, giving parents ideas on how to talk about each chapter’s theme with younger, middle, and older girls – giving each age group a paragraph of its own. Praying for Girls would be a good choice for a devotional book for moms.
