Best three things to do today: talk to God, listen to God, talk to God.
Our great God in heaven loves every person he ever created. And he wants to hear from us! We can call out for God’s help, thank God for good things, seek his love when we have done wrong.
But sometimes we wonder how to pray.
A Book of Prayers for Kids is your guide for talking to God. The 40 prayers here are for everyday use. Prayers to start the day, end the day, mealtime prayers, prayers for when we are ill, confused, lonely, or happy. Prayers for family, for friends, for school. And many others.
Don’t stick this book on a shelf! Put it in your backpack, beside your bed, at your dinner table—wherever you can reach for it! Use the prayers. Talk to God!
A Word to Someone Giving This Book to a Kid…
What could be more important than giving our kids the tools to keep them connected to God? Kids are wired to have faith. And prayer is the way they (and we) make our bond to God strong. Kids don’t need simplistic prayers. They need to be inspired to use the minds and hearts God gave them to speak specifically about every circumstance of life.
