Commentary by New York Times bestselling author Rick Warren
This iconic prayer is paired with flowing illustrations by award-winning artist Richard Jesse Watson and thoughtful insights by bestselling author Rick Warren, resulting in a book that rejuvenates the familiar prayer for a younger audience. Using poetic scripture from the King James Version, The Lord’s Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness helps familiarize children with real biblical text while also presenting contemporary illustrations and insightful words that make this beautiful prayer come alive.
The Lord's Prayer: Words of Hope and Happiness ($16.79) is one of the most beautiful books I have ever seen in my life.
As a family, we say The Lord's Prayer every day. Tbomb knows the words and says it along with us. Snapper tries her best. While they know the words, they did not truly understand it. I decided we would do a "The Lord's Prayer" bible study unit in school to help them truly understand what we are praying. This book was a perfect companion. We read the book every day and then focused on the lines we were studying that particular day. The kids loved the illustrations and started to really understand what we were praying. In fact, each day after prayer time, Tbomb would tell his daddy what a part of the prayer means and Snapper would show daddy in the book her favorite part. This book will be a companion to bible study for years to come and most likely end up being a heirloom, it is that beautiful!
