What People Are Saying

“Jodie Berndt has provided a tangible way to utilize the most powerful tool we have for equipping our children—namely, prayer. With guided meditations for every occasion to shower provision and blessing over your teen, this book is one that all parents need.”

Rebekah Lyons, bestselling author of Rhythms of Renewal and You are Free

“Don’t miss out on praying these Scriptures for your teens. It is the greatest gift you can give them. It will change their lives!”

Fern Nichols, founder, Moms in Prayer International

“Jodie Berndt’s books have been a very special gift in our lives. Her stories keep us smiling, even on the toughest days, and remind us that we’re not alone in our struggle to parent well. Jodie points us to God’s Word and the power of prayer for specific situations, often when we seem to need it most. If I had to recommend only one book to parents who feel lost during their child’s teen years, it would be this one!”

Mike Cunnion, father of five boys and CEO of Remedy Health Media

“As a mother in the thick of raising three teenage sons, I highly recommend Praying the Scriptures for Your Teens. Once our kids hit those challenging teen years, the most powerful thing we can do is love them like crazy and then open up the Word and pray, pray, pray. I believe Jodie Berndt’s book is one of the most helpful and practical parenting resources you’ll ever put your hands on.”

Lisa Jacobson, author and founder of Club31Women.com

“With four teens under my roof, I can’t think of a better book for my nightstand. Prayer, Scripture, and story intertwined, this book is for both the hard crucible and the beautiful highs of raising children.”

Sara Hagerty, bestselling author of Adore and Unseen

“You’ll laugh, cry, and identify with Jodie. She’s real. Best of all, these pages will give you a strategy and a hope.”

Susan Alexander Yates, author of Cousin Camp

“This is an easy-to-use, yet incredibly effective guide for parents who want to use to the fullest extent the two most powerful tools in parenting—prayer and Scripture.”

Joe White, president, Kanakuk Kamps

“Trained in the trenches of praying her own children through their teen years (and beyond), Jodie Berndt’s wisdom reads like pure encouragement from a gentle mentor. Intensely practical, honest, and relatable, Praying the Scriptures for Your Teens is far more than a book; it’s a valuable tool for anyone who wants to be a warrior, a faithful intercessor in praying God’s Word over the teens in their lives. What a vital resource to guide us as we pray our teens through one of the most intense seasons of their lives!”

Katie Westenberg, author of I Choose Brave

“‘Parenting improves your prayer life’ was one of my mother’s wisest insights about prayer. When I became a parent, my prayer life improved dramatically. Praying the Scriptures for Your Teens provides the tools we need to parent and pray with confidence. I am relieved when I remember that God loves our teens more than we do and knows them better than we do. They are never out of his reach.”

Lisa Robertson, author of The Path of Life
