Overview

In the first books in the series of The 10,000 Adventures of Minnesota Dan, we were introduced to Dan's deep and abiding faith in God. When uncontrollable events prove fearful and scary to him, he prays to God for help and his prayers are answered. His faith is tested mightily: during a perilous canoe ride with Rusty, his golden retriever; followed by a voyage sailing through a frightening rainstorm; having a crushed bike wheel which threatens to end a long trip; and lastly, having a mystical experience while cross-country skiing in the Hiawatha Valley.

In this sixth book, How I Speak to God: Teaching Children How to Pray, Dan explores a simple way, through prayer, how to communicate on a personal level with God, The Creator.

In memory of
Barbara LeBuhn,
keeping her close in our hearts.

CHAPTER 1

This is a book about how to pray to God.

For thousands of years, people have prayed to God.

It is a natural thing to do.

My hope is that this small book of prayer will help as you pray to God.


When we pray, we are speaking directly to God.

God wants to hear from us.

Above all else, God loves us.


God created us, filled us with love, and is with us. It's good to know that God loves everyone completely and wants everyone to feel safe and be happy.


With God's love inside us, God will listen to us in:

our prayers, our thoughts, and our feelings.

God wants to know what we need.

God really cares about us.


Now let's take a look at how we can pray. But first you will probably want to know more about praying.

Praying is very simple. You don't need fancy words. Just speak to God as though you were talking to your best friend.


If we are bothered by something or if we are afraid,

we can ask God for help by praying about anything that bothers or frightens us.

God will hear us and help us.

We can send a "letter to God" through our prayer.


If you are afraid turn the page to see what you can do!


A prayer is a "letter to God" made up of words that tell God what we need. We can tell God what bothers us or what we are afraid of. We can say, "Dear God, I am afraid and I need your help." And you know what? God will hear you. Or, we can pray by telling God we are happy and simply want to say thanks to God for all that we have in our life.


The words in a prayer can come from a book or they can come from our own thoughts.

When we pray, we are building a close relationship between God and ourselves.
