Parents can do so many things for their children. We can tie their shoes so they don’t trip and fall. We can make sure they have warm clothes and full tummies. We can even help them tackle some of the mysteries of higher math.
But the most important thing we can do is teach them to pray. Childhood is the best window for learning prayer. We can teach them to talk to God about everything, anything, anytime, and all the time. We can’t promise an easy life, but we can equip them to face life. We can’t be with them always, but God can.
Written for playtime and bedtime, happy times and fearful times, and all times in between, the Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers is a wonderful collection of classic
children’s prayers and new prayers by best-selling author Max Lucado and his wife, Denalyn. These prayers will help your child see that God is always there for them,
ready to listen, guide, comfort, and love.
Because you can’t stop every scrape, heal every broken heart, or banish every bully, but you can teach your child to pray.
Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers is a beautiful book that children of all ages will enjoy. It's full of prayers for all kinds of situations and circumstances - from bedtime to playtime, happy or sad, or just normal days. Each prayer has a definitive rhyme scheme, so it makes them easier for kids to memorize and repeat back later. The book is also full of beautiful illustrations on each page. They're full of color and will definitely catch the attention of all children - especially the smaller ones who can't read yet. In my opinion, this book can be used for children of all ages. When they're really small, they will enjoy looking at the gorgeous pictures while you read the prayers aloud to them. Over time, as they begin to learn how to read on their own, this would be a great resource on practicing reading skills - with the rhyme scheme of the prayers, it will be easier for the child to use the new abilities they are learning as well as finding a good learning system that's unique to them. With older children, they will be able to practice by reading the book to others. With such wonderful prayers - which could also be described as poems - and the incredibly beautiful artwork, this book is sure to be a huge hit with kids and adults alike. It would also make a great gift for a baby shower or a child's birthday. Very highly recommended!!
