My Very First Prayers covers the whole of a child’s world—in a child’s words—with prayers that are fresh and full of living faith. This highly appealing collection of 120 prayers is helpfully divided into sections that reflect a child’s experience—”Morning,” “Me,” “People I Love,” “Things I Do,” “Make Everything Better,” “Great Big World,” “Quiet Times,” and more.The prayers are short in length, but not in their fervor or feeling: “Dear God,
Some people forget my name.
Some people muddle my name.
Please will you remember my name
And remember me.” “Dear God,
May all the children of the world
have all they need
to grow up well
and to grow up happy.” “Jesus, friend of little children,
Be a friend to me;
Take my hand and ever keep me
Close to thee.” “Whenever there’s something
Help me to learn to be fair.” Lively, energetic illustrations bring the spirit of children to each page—their rich color, their intensity of feeling, their stillness, their wonder. This book of prayers puts the holy and the earthly within reach of each other—with life-giving exuberance.
