PRAYER IS IN YOUR HANDS, is a fictional short story of a little girl who spends special times with her Grandmother learning how to bake and garden and pray. The prayer she is taught is The Five Finger Prayer, a simple, yet effective way to talk to God.
The Five Finger Prayer is often used solely by adults but would make a wonderful teaching tool for children and could become a well-used prayer for children. The simplicity of the prayer allows anyone to say the prayer as there are no long phrases to memorize. As well, it is a prayer that could be said anywhere as we always have our five fingers with us.
Straightforward and uplifting, PRAYER IS IN YOUR HANDS, is based on a simple prayer that has been around for quite some time and has been re-introduced to the world once again by the current Pope. No one knows where this prayer came from or who wrote the original version.
This very special prayer book is perfect for even the youngest reader. It will help make prayer a part of everyday life rather then something distant or for adults only.
Options for the book include printing (cutting out hand is optional) and laminating as a classroom or library copy. A copy could also be made for each student to be taken home and used as a connection between home and school and /or between home and the church.
At the end of the book is also an activity that can be done in school, Sunday school or at home as a tie in to the book.
