Despair and Lament are the more weighty of matters of personal prayer that we might try and shield our children from hearing. One desire I have for this series is to bring hope through honest prayerful examples and guidance, equipping parents to build a biblical vocabulary and therefore appropriate responses for each other as well as their children during times of suffering.
