Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids releases Tuesday, Oct. 25.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — With sales of more than 40 million books worldwide, Sarah Young, the bestselling author of the Jesus Calling, Jesus Always and Jesus Listens devotionals, is now releasing a new book of prayers for children, Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids, available wherever books are sold.

With engaging art, age-appropriate prayers and applicable Scriptures, Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids takes kids on a journey to develop a meaningful prayer life, focusing on praying the promises of Scripture daily.

“In my other books, I wrote as if Jesus were talking to the reader. But in this book, each devotion is a prayer — written as if the child is talking to Jesus,” Young said. “My hope is that kids will use these prayers as the beginning of their own conversations with Him.”

This 365-day book of prayers invites children into an ongoing conversation with God, growing a meaningful prayer life and a closer relationship with Him. Children will learn the daily practice of reading God’s Word and talking to Him.

Adapted from the original Jesus Listens book of devotional prayers, this children’s book has the same daily themes and Scriptures as the adult version—making it a great choice for families who want to pray together.

Intended for ages eight to twelve, Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids is a wonderful tool that will equip parents who want to 

  • Teach their kids how to pray and talk to God
  • Reassure their children that God is always with them
  • Help their kids to read Bible verses every day

Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids makes a perfect gift book for birthdays, back-to-school, graduations, Christmas, baptisms, Sunday school awards, and first communions.

Jesus Listens: 365 Prayers for Kids (ISBN: 9781400236633) will be released on October 25, 2022, wherever books are sold.
