Little Angels Prayers for Every Day {Review & Giveaway!}

As we train up our children to know their Savior, one of the things we want them to be able to do is talk daily with Him.  Unfortunately, praying has not come easy for some of our kids.  I think it is hard for them to understand that they are talking to God since they can't see him or they are unsure what to say, especially when praying out loud with others around them.  We have a few prayers that we have taught them to recite in order to help them as they start out.  I was very thankful to receive Roma Downey's Little Angels Prayers for Every Day as it is a whole book of short prayers to recite with my kiddos.
Here is a description of it:

Little Angels Prayers for Every Day features more than 50 simple rhyming prayers that cover a typical day and the typical worries of a young child. From waking in the morning to going to sleep at night, from thanking God for a meal to praying for His comfort when afraid, the prayers here will help little ones to see that any moment is a good moment to talk to God. Relevant Bible verses are scattered throughout the book as well! 

There are prayers for many different situations and it is helpful to read through some of them with my kids to give them more words to pray.  Even if they don't have the exact one from the book memorized, they can still remember most of it and it is helpful for them in starting out their prayer, making it easier to add things in their own words. My kids and I have enjoyed reading and using this book together.

FlyBy Promotions has graciously offered one of my readers a chance to win a copy of Little Angels Prayers for Every Day!  Please leave a comment telling me something about praying with your kids, maybe if it has been easy or hard, their favorite one to recite, your favorite time of day to pray together, etc.  Please also leave a way for me to contact you if you win! This giveaway will end Saturday, March 16 at noon when I pick a winner using random.org.

I know sometimes its hard for my kids to be serious. They might have a "silly" prayer request. But I try to balance that with telling them God hears all our prayers.

It's hard sometimes. We like to do it at night before bed.

We pray together every night before bed... have done so since they were wee things. I make it a point to have conversations with God during each day as well, thanking him and praising him at every opportunity.

My 15 mo. old understands that when we pray we hold hands and sometimes he says amen..thats about it for him! My two and a half year old repeated prayers for awhile but now he likes to say mommy pray. But he has gotten very good at reciting his memory verse: Genesis 1:1. Even my 15 mo. old will put up his little finger and say 1:1!!

My favorite time to pray with my boys is when I'm putting them to bed. We get a chance to talk about our day before prayer time.

I have not established one set prayer time, though use opportunities through out the day to show my girls ways to pray. It had been great to hear my older child say "I need some time to pray" and to find out what she has been lead to pray about.

It would be great to share with them different ways to pray and give them some words to help them when they might not know where to begin.
