Prayers from the Parking Lot: 50 Short Reflections for Moms on the Go


Raise your hand if you’ve ever hidden in your car. Just for a moment, just long enough to catch your breath. You’re not alone! Moms everywhere are sitting on park benches and bleachers, in minivans and bus stops, at the baseball field, the dance studio, or in line at the grocery store. And we are exhausted.

Moms don’t need more information, instructions, expectations, or responsibilities. Instead, you need something to put your mind and heart at ease. You need a reminder that everything you’re anxious about is in God’s hands. And you need it in small doses you can fit into your schedule–even if that means a few stolen minutes in the car!

Prayers from the Parking Lot meets you where you are–overscheduled and overwhelmed. Perfect for reading while you’re on the go, these to-the-point devotions and prayers are topically arranged so you can go straight to the issue you’re facing right now. If you’re looking for understanding and encouragement as you navigate your busy days, this little book will yield big results.
