“Anglican Prayers for Children is thoughtfully designed, rich in scope and content…. This is certainly a fine and unique gift for young people, but I think the demographic should also include adults. A very fine work, indeed.”-Jan Karon, best-selling author of the Mitford series
Anglican Prayers for Children began with my search for a prayer book to give out for our church’s summer Bible reading awards: something to encourage children in their independent life of prayer that was faithful to the continuing Anglican tradition.
We didn’t find what we were looking for, so I made it. The end result: this little volume, based on the American 1928 Book of Common Prayer.
What is it?
A simple and timeless guide to encourage both children and adults in their daily prayer lives.
A road map for young families developing meaningful and age-appropriate family prayer times.
Illustrated with over 40 classical masterpieces of Christ’s life from across the centuries, and designed for elementary and middle school aged children to navigate without help, it has sections on: Morning, Noon, and Evening Prayers, Praising God, Confession, Prayers Before Meals, Prayers for Other People, Prayers for All Things, Prayers from the Liturgy, and more. Anglican Prayers for Children also includes a section on the basics of the faith: the Ten Commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, the Apostle’s Creed, important Scriptures to remember and more. This is a paperback of 86 pages and includes a Presentation Page for special occasions.

Order. Simplicity. Peace. These are the pillars of a faithful and enduring prayer life.
God is honored by our prayers when focus is easy and we feel like praying. But He is perhaps even more glorified when we are distracted, praying is hard—and we do it anyway. This is what A Life of Prayer is for: a simple guide to order our prayer lives, and help create the habits of prayer that make talking to God part of the rhythm of life.
A Life of Prayer has carefully compiled prayers to dedicate our days to God, and give voice to the cries of our heart. It is a beautiful, accessible and sophisticated resource.
- A perfect gift for graduations and confirmations.
- A guide for families aspiring to pray together.
- An ideal aid for anyone interested in liturgical prayer.
Born from the enthusiastic response of non-Anglican adults for Anglican Prayers for Children, this volume has broadened the Anglican children’s version into a resource for all ages and denominations. It complies prayers from reliable and timeless sources including St. Augustine’s Prayer Book and the 1928 Book of Common Prayer (with minor updates to reflect modern English).
Paired with illustrations of masterpieces of Christ’s life and quotations from the ESV, A Life of Prayer is a beautiful and trustworthy guide that will be by your bedside for many years to come.
