Share with Children the Power of Praying with Prayers around the World

19 May 2021

Prayer is such an important activity to share with children. It’s a beautiful, essential part of Christian life. Through prayer, children can openly speak to God about their gratitude, sorrows, fears, needs,  joys, or anything they want at all.  Prayer allows children to know God better and to see themselves as God’s children more clearly.

It’s essential that kids know how to pray, why they should pray, and who they are praying to. But starting out how to pray can be a daunting task. Discover with children that praying to God is just as natural as talking to a wonderful friend. That’s why we’re thrilled to publish this month Prayers Around The World by Deborah Lock and Helen Cann.

Prayers Around The World is more than a traditional prayer book. It introduces children to different countries and people groups in the world, sharing uplifting prayers that are inspired by places around the world. The prayers are intended to help children think of others and care for all that God’s created. And the book is beautiful. Don’t believe us? Check out the book’s beautiful spreads below. Children will love looking at the illustrations while they pray and can let their imagination soar.
