ABOUT THE BOOK:
Nothing Compares to Childlike Faith
I know you’re up in heaven, God, and can hear my voice from there. I’m just a little child.
Will you answer my short prayer?
So begins this delightful book that affirms God’s readiness to answer our prayers, no matter what our age.
With engaging rhymes and beautiful illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine assures children that God is always near–watching, listening, caring, and eager to respond to their requests. They’ll also learn that prayer isn’t just about asking for things, but about sharing their feelings of sadness and uncertainty as well as of thanksgiving and joy.
Most importanly, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children—and those who love them—that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no matter what the future holds.

Thanks to Staci at WaterBrook Multnomah for allowing me to be a part of the tour for this book and for sending me a copy of the book to read and review.
Everytime I picked up this book the song This Little Light of Mine kept popping in my head. Not sure if anyone else felt like that or not.
The illustrations in the book are absolutely adorable and so life like. They went really well with the words as Michael pointed out. For me I think having pictures that suit the words makes that book the more enjoyable and understanding for kids.
Michael enjoyed listening to this book when I read it to him. He pointed out that the story was told in rhymes.
We talk about God and how important it is in our lives and about praying. Michael asked how do you pray and what do you say. I showed Michael how to pray and told him to say what he felt like thank you for my mom and dad, the food that you give me and the house I have. Of course Michael wouldn’t be Michael if he didn’t ask if it was okay to pray for toys etc.
I think this is a great addition to our family library.
