How do we lead our children into the experience of GOd?
One of the greatest questions we often carry as parents is whether our kids will feel the nearness, kindness, and generosity of God? We've spent generations within the church raising our children to believe particular things and memorize scripture – we train the mind and intellect while often neglecting what actually brings about change and formation.
The imagination shapes desires. Desires, shape the person.
In Imaginative Prayer, Jared Patrick Boyd roots spiritual formation in the imagination. When we lead our children through guided times of imaginative prayer, they can experience a connection with God that transcends mere Bible knowledge or doctrinal content. This unique resource provides six units of weekly guided imaginative prayer, themed around core topics: God's love, loving others, forgiveness, God as king, the good news of God, and the mission of God. Each unit has six sessions, providing a yearlong experience of spiritual formation for children ages five to thirteen.
Through imaginative prayer, you can help your child connect with God. As you do so, you may find yourself connecting more closely with your child, and your own formation as a parent will deepen into greater awareness of God's work in your lives.
