Prayer Takes Many Forms
Book Review –How Did Bible Heroes Pray by Mona Hodgson
Reviewed by Lisa M. Hendey

In her charming new book How Did Bible Heroes Pray (Kregel Kidzone, February 2005, hardcover, 24 pages) author Mona Hodgson helps children explore the concept of prayer and how to integrate it into their own daily lives. Hodgson points to the heroes children may be familiar with in the Bible and shares how each of these special people turned to God in prayer. For each example given, the author cites the relevant scripture passage for further research and edification. As Daniel turned to God on his knees, children are encouraged to pray to God using this posture. As Samuel lay in bed listening to and conversing with God, children are reminded that they too can take quiet time in bed to pray.

Next Hodgson turns to detailing situations when children might feel led to pray. Jonah’s fear, Job’s sadness and Jesus’ need for “alone time” with his father are all situations to which today’s child can relate. Reminding ourselves and our children that facing moments of uncertainty or disappointment with prayer is a valuable lesson we can offer our families and students.

This book is geared at children ages five and up, as each page features only a few lines of text. A noteworthy contribution to How Did Bible Heroes Pray is the artwork of illustrator Hollie Gillett, whose delightful illustrations feature a broad cross section of ages and races on a pallet of beautiful backgrounds.
