I really like this book. It's hard back cover with some very beautifully illustrated pictures. After a brief introduction encouraging kids to pray, there are ten chapters on prayer covering things such as -what, where, when, and why, about prayer. Does God hear me? Do my prayers matter? All written on a level an 8-12 year old can understand. Each devotional includes a Bible verse, along with the devotion about prayer. At then end of each day and section with thoughts and prayer prompts as well as encouragement to pray. The back of the book has essential information on how to put your prayer to work. It includes a prayer journal where kids can keep track of their prayers and answers to prayer. It also includes a page on salvation and another on the Lord's prayer.There are at least 20 pages to journal on, with prayer prompts such as making a list of family members, friends, and others who need prayer to faith like a mustard seed, spiritual growth and things they are thankful for. This book ties in with the War Room movie coming out this month. (August) And includes an explanation of the War Room logo in the back. I would recommend this book! My ten year old son has begun using it some during his daily devotions. Since he is used to reading a little more than this book has per devotion - most of them are short, he uses it to accompany his other devotional book. I am excited about what he will be learning about prayer through the use of this book. I was blessed with this book in exchange for an honest review.
Looking for a great way to teach your kids about prayer, its importance, and why it is critical for believers of Jesus to pray? Then look no further than Prayer Works: Prayer Training and Strategy for Kids from Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick along with Amy Parker, just on the heels of their successful movie War Room which is all about the amazing power of prayer. Coupled with wonderful colorful illustrations this hard cover book discusses such topics as What is Prayer? Why Should We Pray? What Do We Pray For? Does God Really Hear Me? Where Do I Pray? Why Do My Prayers Matter? What Is the Best Way to Pray? Is There a Wrong Way to Pray? When Should I Pray? and Will God Answer My Prayers? Each of these topics are taken into further details to outline simply conversations your child is likely to ask to give them some ideas to consider implementing in their own prayer life. The best part is at the back of this book is a section for kids to log in their own prayers, along with specific pages like praying for the sick, praying for my family, for others, and even a place to track those wonderful faith building answered prayers. This is simply a way to introduce your child to prayer and to enable them to have an understanding of why its important and referring to the Bible some of those mighty prayer warriors like Esther, David and Daniel. I received Prayer Works by Alex and Stephen Kendrick and Amy Parker compliments of Icon Media Group and B and H Kids Publishers for my honest review of this book. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review, aside from a free copy of this book, and the opinions found here are my own personal ones. There is even a great parent resource to enable parents to help their child establish their own personal place to pray just like in the War Room along with some great tips to make charting their prayers for specific things and people a success when the answers come and just how God can choose to answer them, often in ways we had not considered. For me this is a must have for parents of young children to give them a resource they can refer to for answers on prayer and thus a 5 out of 5 stars in this reviewers opinion.
