About-

This book is an invitation to pray without ceasing, morning, noon, and night. Share words of believers talking with their Creator as they eat, as they lie down to sleep, and as they meet together to celebrate joyous occasions.
Grown-ups and children talk to God in this set of more than 130 prayers, most from the Mennonite tradition. In the morning, they pray that their work may be useful. At noon, they ask to be spared from "soreness or improper feeling." in the evening, they pray for "all sorrowful, oppressed, and destitute."
Children put their trust in God in thirty prayers taught to them by their parents. In turn, they will teach these verses to their own children. Five of these household prayers are in German.
The written prayers address God with the freedom of spontaneous prayer, the way most Mennonites first learned to speak their faith.
