Sparrow’s Prayer by Roger Hutchison — Book Review

Sparrow starts every morning with a prayer of thanks to God. However, one morning, no words will come. He’s not sure why.

Meeting his friends Turtle, Fox, Mouse and Buck, he learns that prayer doesn’t have to be verbal. They teach him to pray with our service to others, our creativity and our joy. Prayer is about a life dedicated to the glory of God. Every activity we do can include an Amen!

Colorfully illustrated by Ag Jatkowska, this little book ends with Psalm 139:1-4:

“O Lord, you have searched me and know me. You know when I sit down and when I arise. You search out my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, You know it completely.”

There is an author’s note with some prayer suggestions, which provide food for thought for both adults and children.
