Prayers for Children


This sparkling and inspiring collection of 200 prayers by Rebecca Winter is for children 8 to 12 years old. Here you will find blessings from the Bible, Jewish prayers, lines from poetry, devotional passages from ancient Christian resources, and the teachings of saints and spiritual writers. Especially worth noting is the connection made in these prayers between daily life and the natural world. For example, two sections are titled "Morning Has Broken" and "Starry Night." These prayers address many of the central spiritual questions children often have about environmental issues, peace in our time, and the presence of God in their lives and their hearts. Makes a great Christmas gift (Good Books).
