'It's really captured the imaginations of my young people' --Ruth Harley, youth worker
It's really captured the imaginations of my young people (Ruth Harley, youth worker)
Produced by a mother-and-son team (Noah is aged 13), this is a different attempt to engage with younger people and encourage them to learn about prayer, using innovative and contemporary culture to hold their attention.
Centring around a blog produced by mum (a vicar in the Diocese of Durham and author), each chapter presents a 'prayer practice' offering diverse activities to encourage prayer including Lego Bible modelling, building a Minecraft church and prayer walking. Whilst written from an Anglican perspective, there are useful tips and suggestions for anyone seeking to engage with children and young people and seeking to encourage them to discover prayer or a deeper spirituality.
The book, produced in a very different style to SPCK's typical catalogue, clearly to appeal to a younger market, was inspired when mum Miranda had two brothers seeking to be confirmed within her parish. When looking for a suitable gift for them, she could find nothing in local Christian bookstores and resolved to find or create something that would measure up.
However, both authors are clear that the book is not experts preaching or telling others what to do. Rather it offers permission and gives room for experimentation in allowing pre-teens and teenagers to discover their own prayer life. Summarising the premise of the work, Miranda writes: This is not a book to teach teenagers about prayer. It is a book to encourage teenagers to try prayer out for themselves.

I have to say that the book has been even better than I expected. The first night he didn't want to put it down, and kept coming over to tell me how exciting it was and all the things he was going to try. He hasn't had a lot of time to try many of the methods out yet, but so far it is encouraging just to see him fired up about trying to pray. With space to store notes about how the prayer time went in the book I see it being a useful resource for him for some time to come.
My god-children have been given it for their own children; and all our family - friends much appreciate it, so all in all a wonderful book.
Thank you Miranda Threlfall-Holmes, and bless you
