Review 1 for The Prayer That Makes God Smile
Date:June 6, 2011
My Son loves this book. He was so excited to get the book. He's 7, but he likes the pictures, the prayers as well- He enjoys putting some smiling faces after he says the prayer in the book. I can't tell you how many times he read the book. This books has definitely help me enhance My son's daily prayer. We pray everyday in the car before I drop him to school- As he said " I need to invite GOD in my heart"!
This is an excellent book providing a young child the knowledge of God's love, the plan of salvation and the assurance that we can never lose our salvation. It is beautifully illustrated and written in simple; yet, Biblically sound words to pierce the child's heart to surrender to the Savior who loves them so very much. Any child that is unsaved could benefit from the words in this book and the illustrations are entertaining and happy. Do not limit yourself to a child no older than 7. This book is wonderfully written. Every home and children's ministry should have a copy to read to the little ones and those who are not yet saved. God Bless Stormie for so beautifully offering the plan of salvation!
God shows His love for us in many ways by sending us rain to make the flowers grow, by giving us loving families, and by giving us his Word to read. God showed his love for us many years ago when he sent his son, Jesus, to die for us so that we might someday live forever in Heaven. The Prayer That Makes God Smile is the one we pray when we ask Jesus to come into our hearts.Stormie Omartian writes in a style that speaks to kids. She makes the concept of accepting Jesus into our hearts easily understood. The illustrations, by Shari Warren, enhance the text by incorporating lively, colorful pictures throughout the book and emphasizing certain words in the text.The author has made the book interactive by adding two special pages at the end. The first one called My Prayer to Receive Jesus gives children a sample prayer they can pray when theyre ready to receive Jesus. Theres a place where your child can enter his/her name and the date he/she prayed the prayer that makes God smile. The other page is titled My Prayer to Tell Jesus I Love Him. It gives children a sample prayer to pray after being saved. There are some blank lines on the page. The instructions say: Make a little smiley face on the lines below this prayer every time you pray it, and you will be reminded that God is smiling down on you.What I Like: Everything. This book is written in a very kid-friendly way. Its a great tool to use when trying to explain the message of salvation. This would be useful for Sunday School teachers and any others who work with younger kids.What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Excellent.Age Appeal: The publisher recommends 9-12-year-olds as the ideal age group, but I think this book would also appeal children a bit younger, also, like 7- or 8-year-olds.Christian Children's Book Review
