ICB The Prayer Bible (Review)


The Prayer Bible for Children helps children develop a heart for prayer and learn the Bible through the popular ICB translation, the simple translation children can read and understand.  Special pages throughout the text highlight the most famous and beloved prayers featured in the Bible. From Abraham’s prayers to the Lord to Jesus praying before his crucifixion to the way Paul prayed for the churches he planted, this Bible will teach young readers about a God who loves to hear from His children and loves answering prayers. This Bible includes a pocket with a prayer journal for children to record their own prayers.

Special features include 160 pages of prayer articles throughout the text and 64 four-color pages featuring poem prayers, Scripture prayers and engaging Kids’ Q&A’s. The full page prayer articles will help children learn how to pray, to not fear prayer, and to see within the Word how and when God’s people prayed. The colorful decorative pages will feature kid-friendly scripture prayers, topical poem prayers and fun questions and answers kids have about prayer. As a value-add, the Bible comes with a prayer journal and a handy pocket on the back flap to carry the prayer journal.

My Review:

I was absolutely delighted to receive this new hardbound Bible for review. It comes in two different styles a pink cover for a girl which I personally chose for my daughter. Then I also comes in a blue cover for a boy. You can purchase either or at these links pink and blue. You will also receive in addition to this Bible, a prayer journal. It’s a small style softbound journal with wider style lines for young writers.

My favorite part of this Bible is the part that includes questions and answers for children. It will ask a question in bold style text different color. Then it will answer it. These are questions that a young believer would ask and many questions my children have asked over the years.

When I personally first received this book I wasn’t expecting it to be full text version of the Bible. I thought it would be more on a children’s version that was a shortened version. However now I’m very pleased with it and how my daughter has really taken to it.

I did give this to my 9 year old daughter who seems to love it and find it easy to read at any time. Once I let her have this one she returned a few of her younger bibles to me. Emaleigh personally liked the prayer request at the back and she will write names with the date beside them. She says it will be her own record of what was going on at that time in her life. I love that she wants to do that. She also liked the softback journal so she can make notes inside of it. I did tell her since this was her bible she could also write in the margins of this Bible for notes. I don’t mind that one bit on letting my child personalize this Bible as her own style. She may look back at it later as she gets older and remember things from back then.

Prayer request:

Softback Journal for notes:

I think The Prayer Bible would make a great gift, whether it’s their first Bible, for a child, teen, or even an adult.
