Prayers for Youngsters to Make into Books

Here are summaries of prayers and verses especially suitable for kids and teens - even preschoolers can benefit from rhymes of inspiration.

Take a few minutes to read the prayers to the youngest children, and over time they will memorize them.

Most of these prayers have several paragraphs. A project could be to have kids make an illustration for each paragraph or shorter prayer and assemble the pages into individual prayer books for later reading and meditating upon during quiet time.

Bedtime Prayers
