Prayers from a Mother’s Heart
by Ruth Bell Graham (Author)
I included some editorial reviews that I found online:
From Library Journal
This collection, assembled and partly written by the wife of popular preacher Billy Graham, demonstrates the sweeter side of her husband’s conservative Christianity, featuring prayers of encouragement and strength aimed especially, though not exclusively, at mothers. Each prayer is faced with a painting or illustration by sentimental Victorian artist Helen Allingham, whose pleasing style has fallen into undeserved neglect.
This gift book is certain to command wide attention.
About the Author
Ruth Bell Graham was the child of missionary parents, wife of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, mother of five children, grandmother of nineteen, and great-grandmother to a growing number. She was the author of many books, including Footprints of a Pilgrim, One Wintry Night, and Mothers Together (written with her daughter GiGi Graham Tchividjian).
Both the prayers and the watercolor illustrations in this book are lovely. It is one of my absolute FAVORITE “mom” books. I love to give it as part of baby shower gifts. There are prayers for all kinds of different aspects of mothering — some examples: an unborn child, strength for a new mother, protection and friendship, the death of a father, adopted children, teenage children, prayer for hurting mothers, a gentle voice, back from the pigpen, on a daughter’s wedding day, prayer for grandchildren, and many others. A wonderful tool to help us be a people of prayer in the raising of children and grandchildren.

This is the 3rd one of these I have gotten. They make nice gifts for new Mother’s. I am very very happy with this book of Prayers
A Must Have for All Moms…
By Stacy Moringon
This book is a wonderful collection of prayers you will want to read and look at day after day. I actually got it to give as a gift to my Mother for her birthday. I found myself going back to the store to buy myself a copy and some kleenex to give along with my Mom’s book : ) Children will never know how much a Mother loves and what it all means until they themselves become a parent. My Mother and I were always close, and now that I have kids of my own…our bond is even stronger. This book looks into a Mother’s heart and shows the love it is filled with for her children.
