When my child was just a toddler, I was very blessed to learn from a friend who shared how she would pray with her toddler daughter in their everyday activities, e.g. when the child fell, when she wished for a toy or even when they were searching for some stuff. So once when my friend tripped and fell, her little daughter immediately prayed for her. That thought me how to start praying with my child and it’s one of the best thing I could teach my child. Hence, I would strongly recommend reading a book like this that encourages our little ones to pray.
Stormie Omartian is the best-selling author of The Power of a Praying series with over 32 million books sold worldwide. I have been very blessed by her books. Combining her passion for prayer with her love for little ones, beloved writer and speaker Stormie Omartian teams with talented illustrator Shari Warren to share an important message: “It’s never too early to teach a child to pray.”
Stormie encourages children to develop the life-changing practices of talking to God every day and explains prayer in easy-to-understand ways. With examples taken directly from the lives of young boys and girls, she helps kids get to know God, thank Him for His love and care, and ask for His help in tough times. Stormie also touches upon forgiveness, the power of praying with others, and having a relationship with Jesus as she assures children that their prayers do make a difference.
Bright, contemporary watercolors depicting a broad spectrum of children accompany the text to present a beautiful picture of growing closer to God in prayer. For children ages 3 to 7.
