Help Please!

My grandsons and I have been working on a project - my first reason for this project was to help them learn to pray the Psalms. My second reason for it was to develop a resource, a tool for other grandmas (and grandpas and parents, too) to use to help their grandchildren - preschool through middle school - learn to pray the Psalms as well.

The project is almost complete. When it is there will be 52 weeks of prayers for children to pray from the Psalms. The passages match the passages in Praying Deeper Through the Psalms for Grandparents & Parents, Too! (Formally known as Deeper In 4 Grandparents & Parents, Too! Praying the Psalms for the Children You Love).

Each week has a passage from Psalms, what it is talking about, some questions to help children to think about and understand the passage and then a "nutshell prayer" - for children who are upper elementary/middle school, one for new readers and one using simple drawings for non-readers. This book also includes space each week for children to record their prayer requests and how God answers, making it a prayer journal. 

Just imagine the impact this book will have on the lives of the children we love by helping them learn to pray the Psalms and keep a prayer journal! 

I'm very happy to be almost finished with this project and am asking for your help. I would sincerely appreciate if you would be willing to look at a few weeks passages for children and let me know what you think. If you are, please email me at lyndagcj@gmail.com and I'll send you the doc for you to look over. Thank you!
