PRAYER ANY TIME, ANY PLACE, ABOUT ANYTHING is suited for grades 1-5 and is 11 minutes long. Prayer is talking with and listening to God. It is also a meeting with our friend Jesus. Children's prayers are heard asking the questions: "Where, when, about what do we pray?" PRAYER OF ASKING is suited for children in grades 1-5 and is 10 minutes long. In prayer, we trust that God is with us in all our needs. The most common form of prayer is one of petition. In this video, young people pray for others, for themselves and as Jesus prayed. They are invited to experience a guided imagery, a pebble prayer, a world prayer, Prayers of the faithful and praying as a group for someone who is sick. PRAYER OF QUIET is for children in grade 1-5 and is 13 minutes long. In our fast-paced worlds, young people need to discover ways to pay loving attention to the God who dwells within them. This video invites young people to come face to face with God in silence by experiencing the words of Scripture "Be still. Know that I am here" through a breathing prayer, a word prayer, a centering prayer, a prayer of Mother Theresa and a relaxing body prayer which leads them into guided imagery.
