This Little Prayer of Mine Review


I love this book, it's so cute. From the cover to the inside pictures down to the various requests of a child's prayer, it couldn't have been better. Reading the pages really hit home all the small things in everyday life we as adults take for granted.  My daughter loved this book and has asked for me to read it to her numerous times now.  I honestly think she took a lot from this book and hope that she even uses some of the things she heard in her prayers. A child's prayers are so honest and genuine and that's what makes this book so true. The passages really make you stop and think about all the many things we should be thankful for ever day even in our busy lives. This is a great book to add to any little ones collection.

  • About This Book:
    Nothing Compares to Childlike Faith
    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, caring, 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 importanly, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children—and those who love them—that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no matter what the future holds.

    5. Children can teach us a lot about God if we are willing to listen to them. Their faith is simple, just like ours should be.
