Barnabas Children's Prayers by Bethan James


Barnabas Children's Prayers by Bethan James

Perfect for bedtime or anytime, Barnabas Children's Prayers is a beautifully illustrated collection of simple prayers, designed to help children pray about the different experiences encountered in daily life. The collection contains nearly 40 different themes covering a wide variety of topics, such as God's love for us; our concerns for ourselves, other people and the world; celebrations and holidays across the year; our family, friends and pets; and many other aspects of everyday life. The collection is designed to dip into day-by-day as children learn to share the everyday details of their lives with God. Included with the prayers is a useful index of themes that places each of the 365 prayers in to a category and helps the child find prayers for many different occasions.


From The Good Bookstall - June 2011 365 short, simple prayers that will enhance a child's prayer time with fresh thoughts and ideas. Very simple illustrations that don't detract from the words, but give added interest to the pages. At the back of the book is an index of themes, to enable you to find just the prayer right for the moment. I had great pleasure just reading through this book and found myself stopping to pray many of the prayers set out. They are often just right for adults too! Review by Mary Bartholomew
