Teach Us to Pray: Scripture-Centered Family Worship through the Year is a daily prayer book that guides families in both listening to and speaking to God through songs, scripture readings, guided action and quiet contemplation, organized to follow the life of Jesus through each season of the Christian calendar.

Includes questions for reflection and discussion.

Teach Us to Pray reminds us that prayer involves both discipline and delight. Copley and Vander Haagen have poured their hard-earned wisdom as pastors and parents into these pages, inviting us to pray as a way of re-narrating our lives into the story of Scripture, as modeled in the Christian calendar. They have found a way to do so with grace, simplicity, attention to a wide range of human emotions, and passages from every book of the Bible. To use this resource is to be led by wise pastoral guides into daily, active devotion as well as unexpected moments of sweetness in friendship with God. My family and I will be reaching for this cherished book every day for many years to come. -Peter Choi, City Church, San Francisco, California

In Teach Us to Pray, Lora A. Copley and Elizabeth Vander Haagen have given families a wonderful daily devotional that takes the profound truths of Scripture and makes them available to people of all ages. They have created a resource rich with rituals and practices that follow the liturgical year and reflect what is important in worship and our daily Christian walk. Teach Us to Pray provides short, child-friendly readings and activities that bring families into God's presence in a way that speaks to all, from children to teens to adults. -Laura Keeley and Robert J. Keeley, 14th Street Christian Reformed Church, Holland, Michigan
