Teen Prayers by Teens is a prayerbook by teens for teens. This handy-sized book fits neatly into backpacks and offers teens spiritual growth and nourishment. It offers teens three types of prayers they will find appealing. Original prayers written by teens bring everyday life to the Lord and acknowledge God’s care about even the most ordinary events, such as friends, sports, and school. The second section taps into the tradition of praying for the saints’ intercession for our needs, and introduces each saint with a brief biography. The final section offers a selection of some of the Church’s traditional prayers with a teen’s reflections on the importance of this prayer in his or her life.
Amid the business of homework, team practices, dates, and friends, it’s often hard to find a place for prayer. Teen Prayers by Teens helps teenagers take the time to develop a relationship with God, so that they will find in him a lifelong friend-a confidant who listens to their anxieties, their dreams, and their deepest feelings, who loves and supports them 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 they find particularly meaningful. Their prayers and ideas will guide teens to a closer relationship with God in their daily life.
