Wee Read Wednesday: I Can Learn to Pray

i can learn to pray
The more we talk with God in prayer—bringing Him thanks, praise, joys, hurts, confessions, and requests—the stronger our faith becomes. We’re not always sure how to pray . . . but Jesus says that prayer is something to be learned. And what better time to learn how to pray than during childhood, when habits that will last a lifetime are formed?

This 52-week experience is a terrific guide for families to understand prayer. From “Wow!” and “Thank you!” prayers to “I’m sorry!” and “Help!” prayers, children will learn what it means to draw near to God and to be changed by Him. Holly Hawkins Shivers, a mother gifted at connecting with kids, makes every discussion engaging and relatable, and helps young believers grow leaps and bounds in their faith.

My Thoughts:
One of the most important aspects of our walk with Jesus is being able to talk to Him and have Him listen. This amazing gift is something I want to instill in my children at their age so they can take it with them for the rest of their lives.

In I Can Learn to Pray we can take our children on a year-long journey of learning how to pray and learning how God is listening when we talk to Him. The quick devotionals are laid out so that it teaches about prayer and then builds on the lessons for the remainder of the book. Children can hold their attention to the short lessons, and give feedback at the end of each one.

My kids have enjoyed the lessons we have done so far, and I look forward to completing this book with them. I know we will use this book for the remainder of the year, and in years to come.
