Reviews - What do customers think about When Daddy Prays?
A Wonderful Book to Teach Kids to Pray Mar 9, 2003
When Daddy Prays is a collection of poems and verses to help a child to learn about prayer. The book tells about a child learns just that from his father. The same as we learn from our Heavenly Father. The Father's prayers help carry the family throughout each day. No matter what the situations or circumstances prayer brings them closer.
I recommend this to any parent, Christian or non-Christian as a teaching tool for their children. Showing them the value and importance of prayer and bringing families closer together in the bonds of love and faith in the Lord Jesus. The illustrations are beautiful, too.
Excellent Book! Apr 8, 2002
Our library recently purchased this book. I loved it. The illustrations are wonderful, but the verses and prayers truly speak to the heart.
