Practical advice on how to help children find opportunities to pray throughout the day. Using warmth, humour, and passion, Urbanski draws on personal experience to show how families are brought closer together through deeper contact with God. There are opportunities for children to pray everywhere-when a friend gets hurt on the playground, before a test in the classroom, and even as they hear ambulance sirens -t just at meals and bedtime. In Pray with Me, Urbanski identifies seven ways that parents can help deepen their child's relationship with God by using everyday life as a trigger for prayer. She shows how spontaneous prayer, traditional prayers you kw by heart, scripture, song, silence, and reflection help families draw closer to God and each other.
