I remember using lovely rhyming prayers with my children. This directed their hearts and minds toward God in a manner that implanted the thoughts in their minds. Rhyme is also a wonderful tool for teaching as it enables the mind to better recall.
I like that the prayers are grouped by category: for a new day, at bedtime, thanks to God, God's wonderful World, special days, etc. By grouping them the reader can more easily return to favorites or those being memorized. There is also an Index of First Lines which is an unusual, but great, addition to a children's book.
Jesus, tender Shepherd, hear me:
Bless your little child tonight;
Through the darkness, please be near me,
Keep me safe till morning light.
--Mary L. Duncan
Day by day, Dear Lord,
three things I pray:
To see you more clearly,
To love you more dearly,
To follow you more nearly,
Day by day.
--Richard of Chichester
Another delightful book recommended by Chat With Vera.
About the book: A companion prayer book to 99 Stories from the Bible with delightful illustrations in a strong vibrant style and prayers for all occasions. The prayers are a combination of traditional and modern and provide an introduction to family prayer time with young children, bringing talking to God to life in the heart of every child.
