ABOUT BOOK: 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.
REVIEW: This book has beautiful vibrant color illustrations that brings scripture to life. Each page has a sentence taken from the Lord’s prayer, gives a brief explanation of the passage and then mentions something to be thankful for.
For example the scripture passage, “Give us this day our daily bread.”
A simple explanation. “God has promised to take care of all my needs, so I will trust him and not worry.”
Something to be thankful for, “Thank you, God, for your gifts.”
The picture for this passage shows on the front cover. It’s a young girl feeding small birds outside.
On the last page of the book is The Lord’s Prayer in its entirety. Rick Warren then talks about prayer. I found this book encouraging and the lovely illustrations inspiring. I can’t wait to share this treasure with my grandkids.”
