I give Jesus Listens five out of five stars!
Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids is a cute way to teach and encourage kids to pray and read their Bibles. My 9 year old has been wanting to pray more on his own, but was not sure how to do so. This helped him to really break that barrier he had put up and freely pray and talk to God.
We really liked the way this book was organized. The daily prayers are organized by months, with a page marking each new month. This made it easy for my son to find where he left off if his book mark fell out of the book. Each of the devotionals starts with a verse (which my son would read over and over so he could commit it to heart), then there would be a prayer that is written to Jesus that was easy for kids to read and understand. My son says that he feels so close to God while going through his devotion.
Sarah Young is known for her books Jesus Calling - and I loved that this was geared toward kids. It’s well written and backed by Bible Verses. The reading level is geared toward kids ages 8-12. My sons are 9 and 11 and enjoyed this book very much.
Thank you to the author, publisher and JustRead Publicity Tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
This devotional is a great book to encourage children into prayer, to spend time with Jesus, build a relationship with Him and learn how to keep Him front and centre in their lives.
It is a resource for a parent or carer to use every day, to pray with a younger child, perhaps discuss the content a little. Or for an older child could go through it on their own, which would be a great discipline to forge.
Children will learn a lot from the prayers about the nature of Jesus and why He can be an important part of their life. Most of all how much they are special and loved.
There is one for every day of the year, with a Bible verse to introduce it, a prayer to read through and some suggested additional Bible reading to follow up.
It is a gentle devotional that will help to build lifelong habits of prayer and Bible reading, packed full of truths and encouragements that will provide daily sustenance.
