Banks shares, “In a world focused on exploiting humanity’s differences, first-time author Ericka A. Banks wants to remind us that we are more alike than we realize. Momma Prays is a homage to those similarities. Inspired by her own mother’s struggle through single parenthood, using her faith and love for her children as her guide, the author uses this book to remind humanity that a mother’s love for her children and faith in her God transcend race, color, religion, and creed. But most importantly, a mother’s love looks the same no matter where you are in the world. A mother’s love and faith know no bounds!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ericka A. Banks’s new book features vibrant inspirational artwork crafted by Alannah Santiago, first time illustrator and military spouse.
