What’s Your Strategy?

As kids grow, their prayer life needs to grow too—but how? Stephen Kendrick and Alex Kendrick offer a strategy that kids can use to figure out how prayer works and just how powerful it is. Lots of great explanation is combined with fun activities, illustrations, and journaling prompts to get kids thinking and praying.

This companion book to the movie War Room contains 32 perforated journal pages kids can use to write specific prayers and then post them on the walls in their prayer room—just like the characters in the movie. Topics include:

What is prayer?

Why should I pray?

Where do I pray?

Is there a wrong way to pray?

What should I pray for?

Does God really hear me?

My thoughts:

This is another book brought to you by the creators of the War Room. This is for your older elementary prayer warrior.

My son and I are working our way through this book. It’s a great guide for parents who are wanting to get their kids praying but aren’t sure how to introduce it in a way that will grab their attention. My kids pray before meals and I pray with them before they go to bed but this book is really a great guide for talking about the different ways you can pray, why and when.

This book begins with a what a relationship with Jesus is and how to have that. If you child hasn’t asked Jesus into their heart now might be the time. Then the book progresses with questions kids might have, like does God really hear me? Will God answer my prayers?

Finally, in the back of the book your child can write out suggested scriptures in their own words (I love that) and then different prayer requests.

Overall, I recommend this book for 8-11 year-olds…a great resource.

Grab your copy at your local bookstore, Amazon, Barnes and Noble,, Books-A-Million or your favorite retailer. (Book doesn’t release until Sept. 1st)

A copy of this book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
