Praying in Color Kid's Edition



Praying in Color: Kids' Edition will forever change the way that kids pray, and how adults try and teach them to do it. This is prayer that makes sense to kids.
One minute a day will do. Any time of the day will work. Drawing is half the prayer, the other half is carrying the visual memories with you throughout the day.
The first book, Praying in Color (ISBN 978-1-55725-512-9), has seen four printings and thousands of lives changed in its first eighteen months of publication. Now Sybil MacBeth has created the ideal kids' version.
From the book:
"Our words make great prayers. But words don't always seem to be there when we need them most. They are sneaky. Words play hide and seek. Just when we're searching for the ones we want, they go missing like socks under the bed. On some days, "Thank you,""Help,""I'm sorry," and "Please" are the only prayer words we can find.
"Praying without words is another option. But what do you do, if you're not using words? How do you pray for yourself or other people without words? How do you get quiet and listen to what God might say?... Look at the drawing on the next page. Believe it or not, it is a prayer. It is a prayer doodle for Ben, Keisha, Matt, Ashley, and Taylor."
