God Gave Us Prayer Hardcover – Picture Book, March 2, 2021
Enhance your purchase
Little Pup discovers Mama sitting silently by the lake, praying. But what does that mean? And how does Little Pup go about praying to God? And what do you say to God? Little Pup's questions spill out as he and Mama walk through the woods. Mama patiently helps Little Pup learn the importance of prayer, forgiveness, gratefulness, and compassion toward others.
With guided prayers for children to use and inspiration to help them create their own, God Gave Us Prayer gently models the ACTS method of prayer: adoration, confession, thanks, and supplication. In the familiar voice that millions have grown to trust from her God Gave Us series, Lisa Tawn Bergren introduces kids to the power of prayer.

Little Pup asked, plopping down beside her.
“I’m spending some time with God, Little Pup. Praying.”
“Huh? I don’t see your lips moving.”
Mama smiled. “Well, God is an amazing listener,” she said. “He can hear our prayers, even when they’re thoughts.”

So thankful for the author/illustrator and all who put their love and dedication into creating this book. We thank you!!
Mama even gives examples of prayers as she walks home with Little Pup. These written prayers can help young readers build a strong foundation for communicating with God, even when it's hard. When Little Pup confesses he's done something wrong, Mama teaches him the importance of seeking forgiveness from God and the one he hurt with his wrong actions. This scene can help little readers understand God's character and develop stronger relationships with God and others.
Upon their return home, Mama and Little Pup enjoy dinner with Papa and welcome him into the conversation about prayer. By demonstrating that God's children pray in different ways, Bergren reminds young readers to be authentic as they approach God on a personal level through prayer.
God Gave Us Prayer creates a safe space for young readers to communicate with God and share God with their friends. The notes to "Little Reader" include a fill-in-the-blank option that can help young ones learn to process emotions and communicate with God on a deeper, more personal level.
The last Little Reader note invites little ones to reflect on Jesus' character and ask to be transformed in His likeness.
God Gave Us Prayer can help children, and adults, become more comfortable with communicating with God and trusting that He hears, cares, and is working in and through their lives.
Due to the amount of text and the interactive component of God Gave Us Prayer, I recommend this book be read aloud by an adult or with an adult so that young readers can ask questions and interact with the text. God Gave Us Prayer would also make a great tool for teaching about prayer and developing a deeper relationship with God. The tone of this story is soothing and sweet, which makes it a good bedtime choice. However, I recommend reading God Gives Us Prayer during the day or when little ones are not too tired at bedtime.
