good book about prayer

Every Child Needs Praying Mum  -     
        By: Fern Nichols, Janet Grant
this is a wonderful book on prayer and how to best pray for your kids. i love that fern nichols uses scripture to pray. i was not taught this way but i love it. you basically are using God's own words and God's words are powerful. for example: place your child's name in the blank, "Father, i praise you that you created _______. you made all the delicate, inner parts of his/her body and knit them together in my womb. thank you for making _______ so wonderfully complex! ..."
she also talks about the praying the four steps - starting with praise (you pick one of God's attributes and praise Him for it), then confession, then thankfulness and then intercession. i am using this more in my personal prayer life and i just love how it gets you really focusing on God from the very start and learning more about you from his attributes.
every mom should read this book. if you live near me let me know if you want to borrow it.
