Andrew Murray's classic work, With Christ in the School of Prayer, calls on the church to pray. The power of prayer is a great gift from God, and Murray beautifully describes the role of the Holy Spirit within the church and exhorts Christians to use the blessings God has given us.
This book is different from most books on raising children. It is a plea for the parents to truly know and walk with God – for them to love God and His Word. In the correct order, focusing first on the parents, Andrew Murray then urges parents to sincerely and consistently love their children and in all tenderness and gentleness teach them as God also teaches us.
Children are a most precious gift that we receive from God, and they deserve our very best. Our faithful training will not be lost on our children; this is a promise found over and over again in the Scriptures. If our hearts are right towards God and our children, the world's influence will not impact our children. We can and must exercise faith, so our children and our children's children will be able to impact the world for Christ and inherit eternal blessings.
A few of the parenting topics covered in this book:

· * The distinct and also shared roles of fathers and mothers.
· * How and why to teach children manners.
· * How to show children the Scriptures in a way that takes root in the heart.
