When I Pray for You

We rated this book:


When I Pray for You is a colorful celebration of a parent’s faith-filled love for a child. Through engaging lyricism, the hopes and wishes for a newly blooming life sprout forth onto each full-color page. Following from birth through the young days of a lively childhood and beyond, a parent’s heart-filled confidence is in the hope of an ever-loving God. This book is a fun, engaging read-aloud that is sure to draw the attention of its young listeners. I had a few curious ones that inched closer as I began reading, and it turned into a rich story time.

The story is sweet with vibrant, whimsical illustrations and aptly avoids becoming saccharine, which was a pleasant surprise.

“‘I pray you love well. That the light in you swells. That the story God writes is the one that you tell…Cause when I pray for you, I imagine God’s view. And pray all that God sees comes alive in you.”

Matthew Paul Turner and Kimberly Barnes have created a lovely and fun love letter from a parent to a cherished child, capturing the everyday prayers filled with hope, whimsy and faith. This would definitely make a great gift for any child.
