Prayers of A Child’s Heart, is a fun and exciting book for children! It expresses short stories from my childhood in the form of prayers. It is a dialog between me and God. You could say, I tell him everything! Yes, the good and the bad. Even though, I’ve never heard him say one word. His blood, grace, and spirit spoke volumes on my behalf. His manifestation in my life is proof enough that he heard me and continues to hear my prayers. I am a witness that God cares and answers prayers! I have many testimonies! Therefore, I say to you never think that your prayer is too odd, short, long, bothersome, or that it doesn’t matter, because it does. Please know you don’t have to pray according to anyone’s approval. In fact, you can go to God anytime of the day or night in your own way and believe that he hears and rewards those who earnestly seek him with a favorable yes, no, or wait. I am grateful that he is my Heavenly Father and he believes in me! In the absence of my biological father, he has been there for me all the days of my life. Yes, I make mistakes too, but thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ, He’s always there to help me overcome! Prayers of A Child’s Heart, also encourages children to tap into their God-given abilities and talents! Please know, it’s easy for other people to shoot down your ideas, but don’t you ever do that. You can turn your ideas and dreams into inventions and possibilities when you believe in the power of prayer. In First Thessalonians 5:17 it says, “Pray continually!” Not that we should always be on our knees or calling upon God with bowed heads; but it show our God that we acknowledge him. Prayer is a benefit for us; it blesses our lives in every good or bad situation. Prayer moves God on our behalf and it moves us forward in every good work. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. Remember, believe that God hears you when you pray and always aspire to let your little light shine! May God bless you is my prayer! ?
