The Beginner's Bible My First Book of Prayers helps young children discover that they can talk to God about anything from the beauty of creation to their friendships and emotions. Thankfulness, praise, and requests for God's help are all included.

Sixteen sweet prayers, written with the child's daily experiences in mind, focus on important character traits such as caring and forgiveness. For each prayer, charming illustrations from The Beginner's Biblehighlight a different Bible character or scene that illustrates the truth found in the prayer. Ideal gift for a new parent or young child, and a great addition to church or daycare library.

God Created All Things

My Thoughts

If your family enjoys The Beginner's Bible then you need to add this companion piece to your library. The characters and verses will be familiar to your children and will help them connect with what is being taught. The focus of My First Book of Prayers is of course prayer. There are sixteen different selections that will highlight different events in the Bible and the corresponding prayer that the people would have likely prayed.

For example the first selection is from Genesis and involves Adam and Eve in the garden. The prayer focuses on gratitude. That's an easy thing to imagine if you think about the beauty and provision that they were surrounded by. It's also a great way to begin to teach your children to look around and see the beauty and provision that God has provided for them right here.

The rest of the sections contain similar examples like a prayer for courage such as one David would have prayed when he was up against Goliath. Or a prayer of kindness like the good Samaritan must have prayed over the poor wounded man he rescued.

Each example points to the many different ways that we can have a conversation with God all day long in every situation we find ourselves in. 

The book itself is a padded board book that makes it easy for little hands to use over and over again. It would make a wonderful addition to your morning or evening storytime routine.
