“I sometimes stumble in my own prayer life, and I needed this inspiration to teach my kids about prayer! This eBook has become part of my family’s daily devotional time and my two sons, ages 6 and 9, love the friendly Q&A format! We read the eBook on my tablet (I have it on my phone too), and we’ve tacked one question at a time for 20 days over morning breakfast. They’re finally beginning to understand that prayer is a one-on-one conversation with their heavenly Father, and that it doesn’t have to be routine… or perfect!” ~Jaime Guthals, FaithGateway.com

This eBook encourages children to embrace a personal relationship with God and discover that prayer is a conversation with God. As Slattery explains to children in the eBook, “One part of the conversation is talking. The other part is listening…. God wants to listen to you (Psalm 34:15). He is interested in all your thoughts and feelings. He is interested in all your friendships, hopes, and dreams. He is interested in everything about you. God wants to talk to you! (Isaiah 30:21).
As a further taste of this FREE eBook, here’s an excerpt from one Q&A:
Question: Do I Need to Use Special Words When I Pray?
Answer: You don’t need to use special words when you pray. You don’t need to use fancy language. You don’t need to memorize prayers. You don’t need to recite prayers written by other people. You don’t need to write down your thoughts before you pray. You don’t even need to speak out loud. It’s perfectly all right to have a conversation with God silently. This is because God hears your thoughts.
When you pray, just be yourself. Talk to God as if He is your best friend in the whole world. It is all right to cry when you pray. It is all right to laugh too. Jesus was so close to God that when He prayed, He called God “Abba,” which means “daddy” or “papa” (Mark 14:36). Jesus says this is how we should pray to God too.
