Prayer book

Amid the business of homework, team practices, dates, and friends, it’s often hard to find a place for prayer. But take the time to develop a relationship with God, and you will find in him a life-long friend—a confidant who listens to your anxieties, your dreams, and your deepest feelings, who loves and supports you no matter what. Teens searching for a deeper connection with God in their lives have filled this book with prayers they have written to God, to the saints, and with traditional prayers that they find particularly meaningful. Let their personal prayers and insights into your heart—they will guide you to a closer relationship with God in your daily life. $11.95
