Why I Want to Read This:

Knowing how to pray for anyone is difficult, let alone your children. God's will is not the easiest to discern, especially in troubling times, so for me, having a guide that I can open and instantly find some sort of inspiration is critical. In our day and age, the person who can sit and pray for a long time is a lucky person, indeed.
