A World of Prayer – Interfaith Prayers for Children
It is never too soon to develop understanding and respect for other cultures and religions. This beautiful full-color pamphlet-style booklet introduces children to “A World of Prayer” through a sampling of short prayers from ten different religions, with representative pictures of children of each culture. Children will see themselves represented, and also see their friends and neighbors in a respectful setting. This will help them gain a better understanding of how our differences aren’t so different after all.
In addition to being a great educational tool that can be given out at children’s classes, festivals and interfaith events, the prayers themselves are a source of comfort and inspiration. This makes them valuable additions to hospital waiting rooms, homeless shelters, children’s services offices, and anywhere there are children who might be feeling stressed and in need of some Divine assistance.
I encourage you to click on the pictures and get a feel for the welcoming and reverent attitude the pictures and prayers present.
By making this more pamphlet-style than our other booklets (it doesn’t have a separate cover), we were able to create a full-color booklet for the same price as our one-color booklets. That way we could price it low enough that you can feel comfortable giving it away in large quantities. Leave several copies out in public areas so that people will feel comfortable picking them up and taking them home. It is pretty enough to be received as a precious gift, but small enough that it will not burden the receiver or make them feel like they are taking something they shouldn’t.
In health care settings, this is a great companion to our Book of Comfort and Healing, which is an interfaith booklet organized by topic. It contains scripture focused specifically on health, healing and the soul.
Another good companion book is The Interfaith Prayer Book. It is a more general book of prayers designed for adults. It is organized by religion rather than by topic. It includes beliefs about prayer from the six major world religions, appropriate clip-art of Holy Places and symbols, and a diverse selection of representative prayers for each religion.
All three of these booklets are wonderful ways to make people of every faith feel included. They are appropriate for any setting in which people from different backgrounds might come to pray or celebrate together. To encourage organizations to come up with creative ways to use them, we accept purchase orders from Hospitals, Universities, and other select organizations. Please call or e-mail to request our W9 and set up an account.
This edition is the pamphlet/booklet edition designed to be purchased in bulk and given away. It is 6×4″ full-color throughout, self-cover (cover is the same paper as the interior), saddle stitched (bound with staples), and 24 pages long.
