Overview

The best place to teach children about our faith is in the home. The Anglican Family Prayer Book is a resource for Episcopal families who want to pass on Anglican prayers and traditions to their children and teach faith in everyday settings.

This important new resource has been compiled by The Rev. Canon Anne Kitch, well known for her children's books, Bless This Day and One Little Church Mouse.

Prayers for morning and evening, blessings, nighttime prayers, prayers for ordinary and special occasions, intercessory prayers, prayers of the Eucharist, and prayers for use during the special seasons of the Church year make this book one that families will use every day.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Praying together as a family is a strong tradition in all faiths. Even the youngest child can learn a blessing to say at mealtimes, or a prayer for bedtime. This prayer book is an excellent resource for all families of faith, even though it is written primarily for the Episcopal family. Prayers from the Bible are quoted, and explained. Among them "The Lord's Prayer," 'The Doxology," "The Prayer of Mary,' and "The Prayer of Zechariah." Scattered throughout the volume are suggestions for teaching your children to pray. Supplemental pages include a listing of all Holy days on the Episcopal calendar, and an index of first lines. This would be a treasured gift for couples celebrating a marriage, an anniversary, or a birth. 2004, Morehouse Publishing, Ages 10 up.
