I Can Learn to Pray – A Book Review

 

I Can Learn to Pray by Holly Hawkins Shivers is a phenomenal resource for families, churches and especially homeschools.  Besides the fact that it’s a beautiful hardcover book, it is filled with 52 weeks of devotions on the subject of prayer.

There are seven sections in the book covering topics such as how to pray, thankful prayers, sorry prayers, help prayers, and the prayers that Jesus prayed.  I absolutely love how even the language of the sections is geared towards kids (such as “I’m Sorry” prayers).  This sweet little devotional is filled with tons of ideas for kids to put what they’re learning throughout the book into practice (such as thanking God each day for a different person and sending them a note telling them they’re being prayed for – a wonderful idea for adults as well as kids!)

This book could easily be added into homeschooling curriculum by covering one devotional each week.  There are even little assignments within each devotional that are meaningful and easy to understand.  Although the suggested ages for this book is 4-8, the younger kids might need a little help.  I also think that my almost 10 year old would be thrilled with this book!

Holly Hawkins Shivers has also written another 52 week devotional for kids, I Can Learn the Bible, which looks just as wonderful as this one.

I highly recommend I Can Learn to Pray!  What a wonderful resource for families to learn about prayer together!
