The Pray Me a Story series uses popular children’s books as a springboard for entering into imaginative prayer. Pray Me a Story is designed for use by catechists, religion teachers, parents, grandparents—anyone who prays with children of any age.
This kit includes the hardcover book Douglas, the Boy Who Knew God and an 8-page booklet to guide the adult with step-by-step instructions on how to share and discuss the story. After hearing the story, the child is gently guided into the scene to meet Jesus and prayerfully speak to him as one friend speaks to another.
This is a story about a boy named Douglas. Douglas was born unable to move his arms and legs, and he lived in a large hospital. The people at the hospital loved Douglas and took care of him. Maria comes to the hospital on Sundays to teach the children about God and prayer. One day Douglas has the chance to teach Maria about prayer. As children listen to the story, they think about what they can thank God for.
