My Review:
Do you have family or friends that have just had a new baby?
Are you expecting a little one?
For This Child I Prayed is a stunningly illustrated book that gives parents beautiful scripture to pray over their child, whether they are born yet or not. Stormie Omartian is a well known author, but this is one of the first times I have seen a gift book from her. It is a perfect gift ideas for baby showers (I always love giving a gift for baby, but mom as well), Christmas, birthdays and just any old time. 
The prayers in here are easy to read and understand and follow all stages of parenting from newborn to teen years. The pictures of the children throughout are adorable and I love that you can easily add your child's own name into each prayer. 
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
