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 Enemy Pie 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 who has a new neighbor. He thinks the new boy doesn’t like him, so he decides the new boy is his enemy. The boy’s father knows a way to get rid of enemies, and they make a plan. As children listen to the story, they think of someone they didn’t like very much at first and reflect on all that they have in common now.
