I was given this book as a Christmas present about six months after the accidental drowning death of my two-year-old son. I have two older children and anxiously began reading to see what insights might lie within. After reading the chapter entitled "Securing protection from harm," I found myself feeling furious. I went back and read it again to see if I had missed something. Stomie's book implies that even if harm does come to your children, if you have covered them with prayer this pain or harm will be " to their betterment and not to their destruction." As a mother who prayed for safety and protection for her children daily (as well as their father and grandparents who prayed for them in this regard as well), it is frustrating to see that Stormie leaves no room for the FACT that sometimes tragedy happens. Her book implies that our son's death is a result of our lack of prayers. Her own son's unscathed escape from a car accident is attributed to the prayers of his parents. To what should my husband and I attribute the death of our son? I would have liked to see some kind of disclaimer or acknowledgement of the fact that tragedy happens sometimes to even praying parents.
I let myself cool off for a month or so and picked the book back up to read again. I realize that there is a lot there that is good, but I was so offended initially that it took me a while to see that. I pray that Stomie Omartian never learns first hand that despite all of our prayers, our children are not always shielded from harm and even death. I imagine that if she had lost a child, the tone of her "protection" chapter would have been quite different. I recommend a book called "When Life is Changed Forever by the Death of Someone Near" by Rick Taylor. He is a Christian author who lost a son in an accidental drowning and who offers great perspective on learning to trust God again after such tragedies.

This book is great. Until your child dies and you wonder why all the prayers you prayed that she recommends didn't "work". The book is not Biblical; she does not understand that God's ways are mysterious and He is not a God who answers prayer like a vending machine; put in a prayer and get the answer you expect. The chapter on praying for safety and protection for your child is misleading. It focuses on their physical safety. So what are praying Christian parents to believe if their child dies, gets horribly injuried, disabled, raped, or has a mental illness or handicap? That we didn't pray the right way? Or for the right things? Jesus clearly said that in this world we will have trouble, and that this world is under the control of the evil one. And that death will be defeated once and for all when Jesus returns. Since my daughter died, I no longer pray the same way from how I learned in this book. I don't pray grasping, anxious prayers for my surviving children. Instead I pray for them to have God's peace, love, endurance, patience, etc; the fruits of the spirit. God knows what we need and what our children need; He doesn't need us to pray down a list to make sure every eventuality is covered. Don't fall for this book only to be disillusioned. My daughter died, but she is truly safe now, in the arms of Jesus. Can you pray to release your children to God, even if it means their death? Then you have truly learned to trust Him and have a faith that will endure any hardship. Here is a picture of my beautiful daughter, Fiona Rose, who lives in heaven.

My husband and I went through this book with another couple and after the first two weeks our book discussions became more of a weekly rant of how ridiculous her theology was. We stuck it out to the faithful end, but the author lost us when she began indicating we can control every aspect of our child's life through prayer and, conversely, parents who encounter tragedy, or other troublesome event involving their children, were simply not praying enough. She actually related a story of two children involved in a vehicular accident - one survived, the other did not - and she literally said, "Imagine what would have happened if that child had had praying parents." It made me sick to my stomach.

I believe prayer has power, but I do not believe God accepts prayer as a to-do list. He does not take orders from us. In addition, our prayers, however powerful, still do not counteract the free will given to each of our children. They may choose to ignore the promptings from God, no matter how hard we pray.

Please do yourself a favor and skip this one.
