Product Description

Nothing Compares to Childlike Faith
I know you're up in heaven, God,
and can hear my voice from there.
I'm just a little child.
Will you answer my short prayer?

So begins this delightful book that affirms God's readiness to answer our prayers, no matter what our age.
With engaging rhymes and beautiful illustrations, This Little Prayer of Mine assures children that God is always near--watching, listening, caring, and eager to respond to their requests. They'll also learn that prayer isn't just about asking for things, but about sharing their feelings of sadness and uncertainty as well as of thanksgiving and joy.
Most importantly, This Little Prayer of Mine reminds children—and those who love them—that they can trust God to tenderly care for them, no matter what the future holds.

Editorial Reviews


Everyday we must live in a close trusting relationship with God, always looking to Him for comfort and direction through prayer. This Little Prayer of Mine is the springboard for helping children to establish that type of life-long relationship with our Heavenly Father.  Both parents and children alike will praise Anthony DeStefano for this amazing little book.

Other than breathing, there is nothing more important for any child to learn – and learn deeply and well -- than to pray.  Talking with God should be as easy and natural as breathing and as necessary.  What a blessing Anthony DeStefano’s little book is!

This Little Prayer of Mine

It is comforting to know for children (and adults, too) that God's love surrounds them when life seems scary or you are all alone. Calling out to God and just talking to Him is a wonderful way to encourage the presence of God in prayer. I love books on prayer and you'll find on the front cover that this book is "Endorsed By National Day of Prayer." The illustrations by Mark Elliott add so much to each page of the story line. I found this children's book so inspirational, written from Anthony's heart, that I wanted to recommend this book to you for your library purchase and gift giving. It is a wonderful message of faith and inspiration that strengthens and reinforces children of every age  in that every day hope and assurance that God is love. He truly does listen to our prayers. This will be one of those book's that is continually asked for bedtime reading . It's a real simple message for all children and adults and that is to be loved...  and with assurance, I can say that God does truly love you.  You'll be happy you purchased this wonderful book... it's a great read! Anthony DeStefano has a winner with this one!
