This Little Prayer of Mine

"I know you're up in heaven, God,
and can hear my voice from there.
I'm just a little child.
Will you answer my short prayer?"
So begins this delightful book that affirms God's readiness to answer our prayers, no matter what our age.
With engaging rhymes and beautiful illustrations, This LIttle Prayer of Mine assures children that God is always near--watching, listening, and eager to respond to their requests. They'll also learn that prayer isn't just about asking for things, but about sharing their feelings of sadness and uncertainty as well as of thanksgiving and joy.
Most important, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children--and those who love them--that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no mater what the future holds.
My kids have really been enjoying this book. The illustratons kept the littles looking through the book even after we were done reading it aloud. It also helped to teach the older kids about how many different kinds of prayer there is. They learning that prayer is not only about asking for things from God, but also about saying "thank you" for our God has givin us.
I highly recommend this book!
