The intention of the book is that prayer should be seen as integral to the life of a child, rather than the preserve of adults, and that it is not merely a ritual act at the end of an event - the boring bit after the fun stops. The material aims to encourage children and adults to pray in their own way and their own language, but with a deeper understanding of prayer through exploring the Bible passages. Each story is preceded by an introduction and key Bible verse and followed by practical prayer steps. The material is designed for both individual and group use.
