God's word tells us that children need to be taught from his word. We all need to learn from Him in order to become wise.
If this is what you want for your child then this book will help you, because God's word will help you. Integrate scripture memorisation, prayer and worship as part of your daily routine. Each page is set out with a prayer, memory verse and short comment.
The disciples asked the Lord Jesus to teach them to pray. Ask God to teach you and your children to do the same.
"Sunday School teachers would greatly value giving the book to children from unbelieving families who show spiritual concern, helping them to draw near to the Lord daily."
"We have best understood the Bible when we turn it into prayer. That is what Philip Ross does for children in My First Book of Bible Prayers. He takes brief texts of Scripture and turns them into simple, and yet profound prayers that children can readily use. This little booklet will open the heavens for many at a young age. I wish this rich spiritual resource had been available to me twenty years ago!"
"Learning to pray the text of Scripture and to apply its truth to our lives is vital for our spiritual growth. This book by Philip Ross enables children to do both. I can't recommend this wonderful tool more highly."
Cindy1 Stars Out Of 5Horribly disappointed!January 22, 2011CindyQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I was looking for a beginners prayer book for my pre-schooler. I was very disappointed to find condemnation on every page! It is not suitable for children beginning to learn about the Bible or to take interest in the scriptures. This is fear based, not love based. I threw it in the garbage!
Beth Christianson5 Stars Out Of 5September 16, 2010Beth ChristiansonI have just ordered this book due to Lisa's review. I glanced at the cover and thought it would be another fluff book for children so parents can feel like they're teaching their kid's about God. After I read her review I actually read through the sample pages and was impressed. The truth is that we are born horribly wrenched sinners and that no good can come from us without the renewing spirit of God living in and through us. If we don't teach our children what the human condition is, which is fallen then they will never know how unbelievably amazing it is that Jesus would take on flesh to have victory over sin so we could be reconciled to God. The Bible is very clear that the heart of man is wicked. We can only be saved by the grace of God through faith. John 15 tells us that we can not bear fruit apart from God. Galatians 5:18-25 Tells us what our sinful nature is and about the fruits of the Spirit. I know who I was before Christ, fruitless. I know who I as even after Christ when I stepped back into my own flesh nature and turned a deaf ear to the Spirit's prompting. I know who I am now, yes there are still days that I choose to sin and not walk by the Spirit. But I know that God is sanctifying me through my daily trials. On my own, I am still a wicked sinner. But through God's unconditional love and my faith in who Jesus was, is and will be eternally- I have been reconciled to a holy and righteous God. I did nothing to deserve this, which is to his glory and honor forever. The Spirit brings conviction which leads to repentance, not condemnation or guilt which leads to self indulgent loathing. God wants out eyes eternally fixed on him, not inward obsessed with our own esteem. I thank God that he is remolding me each day more into the image of Christ Jesus.
Lisa Harden5 Stars Out Of 5September 10, 2009Lisa HardenThis is an awesome book for beginning readers and preschoolers. My daughter is 4 and loves to read it herself. She is able to remember the bible verses and prayers with the sing song patterns.
Lisa Harden1 Stars Out Of 5September 10, 2009Lisa HardenWe actually read through the book first and were shocked to read that it was full of condemnation. It had awesome bible verses but the summary of the bible verse was condeming for children and condemnation is not of God. We were apalled and threw the book in the trash.
