Nashville, TN (January 20, 2021)
To help young readers understand how God enjoys them and is attentive to their cares, questions and prayers, USA Today best-selling author Lisa Tawn Bergren offers the charming picture book God Gave Us Prayer, set to release on WaterBrook  February 16, 2021.

This beautiful addition to Bergren’s God Gave Us Series—with over four million copies sold—gently teaches young readers how to talk with God about anything that’s on their minds.

With winsome storytelling and helpful examples, God Gave Us Prayer answers young children’s many important questions about prayer and shows exactly how conversational, comforting, and easy talking to God can be.

Little Pup has lots of questions after he finds Mama silently praying by the lake one evening.
How can God hear his prayers when he’s only thinking them in his head?
Why did God give us prayer?
And if God knows everything about us, why do we need to pray at all?
Can he hear us when we’re upside down?

But he has more questions—and now his friends want to learn to pray too!

Throughout the story, Mama and Papa lovingly teach Little Pup about different times and possible ways to pray. Gently and seamlessly, Bergren weaves in the ACTS method of prayer (adoration, confession, thanks, and supplication), which has been widely used in the church for many decades.

Available at the beginning of the Lenten season, this heartwarming and enriching picture book makes a wonderful gift for Easter and at any other time of the year.

God Gave Us Prayer will be treasured by parents, caregivers and ministry leaders as they lovingly introduce children to the power of prayer.
