This devotional is a chance to take your family on a journey through the story of prayer in the Bible. It is based on the popular storybook by Laura Wifler, co-founder of Risen Motherhood, which explores prayer: from the Garden of Eden, where Adam and Eve talked with God face to face, through Old Testament examples and the teaching of Jesus, all the way to the promise of the new creation, where we'll dwell with God .
These 10-minute devotions are designed to be easy to lead and fun to do. They will help your family to learn to pray with confidence, . They are ideal for kids aged 5-11.
Each one of the 15 devotions includes:
- a short opening prayer
- a starter question
- a short Bible passage, printed in full
- two questions about the passage
- a short explanation that can be read aloud
- two reflection questions (Usually one is simpler and the other requires more thought. Feel free to just pick one )
- a prayer idea
- an optional extra section that goes deeper, aimed at older or more confident children
In addition, there are simple, creative reflection ideas as well as bonus puzzles and activities.
Explore, reflect and grow together as you and your family are encouraged to pray more often, more joyfully and with more confidence in Jesus.
