Some books of children’s prayers include “Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids,” “For Girls Only! Devotions,” “The One-Year Devotions for Preschoolers” and “Baby’s First Book of Prayers.” Such books offer prayers adapted in a language and fashion that children and young teenagers relate to more easily than they do to scripture.
“Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids,” written by missionary Sarah Young, is a collection of devotions written from the point of view of Jesus. In her book of prayers, children feel Jesus speaks directly to their hearts as a reader.
The prayer book “For Girls Only! Devotions” by Carolyn Larsen applies biblical concepts to the everyday lives of girls aged 8 to 12. This book addresses the topics that today’s children and tween girls face, all within the theme of scripture, and it includes a quiz, to-do list and quotations that reinforce the lessons.
The prayer book “The One-Year Devotions for Preschoolers” by Crystal Bowman is an illustrated book for preschoolers. It contains 366 daily devotions that focus on topics relevant to young children and toddlers. Each devotion includes a contemporary story, a Bible verse and a rhyming prayer. “Baby’s First Book of Prayers” by Melody Carlson and Judith Pfeiffer is a book of first prayers for a baby.
