Dear GodWhen my children were growing up, oh so very many years ago, I had some little "Golden Books"with children's prayers in them. I like to think that teaching my children little prayers encouraged them to develop the habit of praying at a young age.
You made the sun and moon.
You made the galaxy.
And, Lord, I'm very grateful that you also made me! Amen!
All the birdies in their nests
tending to their young,
are singing praises to you, Lord--
such lovely songs are sung. Amen!
Every day I pray
for something for myself.
Today I'd like to pray
for something nice for someone else! Amen!
Prayers for Every Day will aid the parent in teaching their child to pray in all circumstances. Some of the prayers have light rhyme, some are simple statements. And if you will notice in the above quotes, the prayers don't ALL say "Dear God." They address the different personages or titles for our God: God, Jesus, Lord

In conclusion, I do not especially care for depicting angels as little people or as children. However, I see the concept is to enable the small child to visualize angels ever watching over them as promised in the Bible.
About the Book: Little Angels Prayers for Every Day features more than 50 simple rhyming prayers that cover a typical day and the typical worries of a young child. From waking in the morning to going to sleep at night, from thanking God for a meal to praying for His comfort when afraid, the prayers here will help little ones to see that any moment is a good moment to talk to God. Relevant Bible verses are scattered throughout the book as well!
