Family Christian provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
Since January, I’ve noticed a common theme running through several sites. Let me give you just two examples of that. Family Christian’s book of the year is Max Lucado’s Before Amen. Author Robin Lee Hatcher announced on her blog at the beginning of the year that her word for 2015 is Persistent Prayer. Prayers is often something that becomes rote, something we do at meals or before bedtime with our children. What if we became more committed to prayer? What if we taught our children to pray continuously? How much different would our world be with more prayer warriors?
In Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers, Max and Denalyn Lucado provide a book full of prayers for children. Parents, teach them young and they will build a lifelong habit.
This beautifully illustrated book begins with a letter to parents, a plea to teach children to pray. The Lucados encourage parents to read the book with their children, memorize their favorites, and recite them often. The prayers of others are as important as our own.
Don’t let the title fool you. This book is full of morning prayers, prayers of thanks, playtime prayers, and more. A collection of time-tested prayers that have been adapted, scripture verses, and new prayers written by the Lucadoes that flow like nursery rhymes (the flow and rhythm make them east to memorize).
If you’re looking for something special to share with your children or grandchildren, this would be a wonder family activity. The book would also make a beautiful gift for expecting parents (perhaps you’ve got a baby shower ahead and need a thoughtful gift). Sunday school teachers who have a student who might not have a spiritual mentor might consider passing this along as a way to teach a child to pray.
