It is a well-known paradox of the spiritual life that when we gather together and focus our love and attention outward--on Gods goodness and grace--we actually grow closer to one another. That is the secret of praying together as a family. . . .MoreIt is a well-known paradox of the spiritual life that when we gather together and focus our love and attention outward--on Gods goodness and grace--we actually grow closer to one another.

That is the secret of praying together as a family. . . .--Gregory and Suzanne WolfePrayer, it has been said, is the natural language of the heart. Indeed, surveys reveal that Americans overwhelmingly believe in the power and efficacy of prayer. Yet many parents feel uncertain about introducing their children to prayer because they themselves have forgotten--or never learned--how to pray. Consequently, their children too are kept in the dark, uncertain how to start, what to say. Now Circle of Grace gives parents the inspiration, confidence, and practical help they need to begin integrating prayer into the fabric of family life.

This compelling book contains more than four hundred prayers from many faiths--as fresh and moving today as when they were first uttered.Writing from their own experiences with family prayer, the authors answer such questions as: What is the best and most natural way to introduce your children to prayer? What if parents are of different faiths? Are there special times and places for praying? What if your child resists this intimate new family activity? Inside youll discover prayers of praise and petition- for bedtime, mealtime, and birthdays- for holy days and the seasons- for sickness, death, and times of special need- for family, friends, even pets.Praying with your children not only passes on a precious gift but also can become a source of spiritual renewal for parents--a chance to rejoin the pilgrims path.

With wisdom and common sense, Circle of Grace sets us on our way.
