The Kids and Prayer DVD featuring Br. Mickey McGrath, OSFS, is a wonderful introduction to prayer for kids, divided into 4 segments for instruction. Br. Mickey stresses how much Jesus loved children, and that prayer is about communication and relationships with God, and that you can talk to God anywhere. This DVD incorporates field trips to Gillette Stadium (to hear the Chaplain of the New England Patriots football team) and to Spencer Abbey where kids can watch the monks make their world-famous Trappist preserves.
An engaging “Bible Time” features Br. Mickey’s illustrations and brings the Bible to life in a new way , anchoring prayer teaching in the scriptures.
Each segment features interviews with children of all ages so kids see peers talking about prayer and what it means to them. Each segment engages with lively music, interviews, illustrations, and field trips creating a DVD that is full of content presented in a fun manner that kids can grasp.
This lively new video presentation is broken into four sessions, with each asking a basic question. These four segments include explanations from Br. Mickey, interviews with kids, onscreen storyboard Bible teaching featuring Br. Mickey’s illustrations, and “on the road” field trips to look at each question from a different angle. Your class will enjoy paying attention to this engaging instruction!
