The Beginners Bible Book of Prayersgive parents an excellent prayer model for young children, similar to what Jesus did when He modeled prayer with His disciples.
Two-page spreads highlight twenty of the most popular Bible stories from Genesis to Luke. The left side includes a Bible verse and color picture of the story portrayed. The right side contains a simple three-sentence prayer. Prayers include a relevant scripture and corresponding character trait.
The examples are drawn from both the Old and New Testament stories with simple, accurate illustrations. Featured topics include friendship, patience, sharing, kindness, generosity, honesty, love and conclude with the well-known Lord’s Prayer.
For example the lesson on “Sharing” shows a boy sharing his food with Jesus, an illustration of the Bible story from Matthew 14:20 where 12 baskets of food are left over. The short prayer, “Dear God, you give us good things and you want us to share them with others…help me not to be selfish…” is in the words of a child, easy-to-understand.
The padded board book design with thick, sturdy pages are child size to carry around the house or perfect for gnawing toddlers. This is an excellent addition to any family library for a bedtime story or prayer, besides making an excellent addition to any Easter basket.
