Baby Prayer Blankets
Praying with Your Baby
The blanket and the guide for praying with a baby go hand in hand, offering an avenue into a spiritual time shared by parent and child. For some families, props and directions may seem superfluous. However, many of us have trouble simply praying aloud. Thinking about when and how to introduce a child to prayer can be daunting. The suggestions found in Praying with Your Baby not only provide ideas about what we might do, in a subtle way they give us permission to do it. Regardless of a parent's starting point, the blanket and booklet can be a wonderful gift of welcome and celebration of new life.
We think blankets for babies, as used in this ministry, should be cozy and easy to care for. Crocheted or knitted blankets are lovely. Fleece, bound with smooth silky blanket binding, has worked well too. An electronic copy of Praying with Your Baby is available on request at no cost. A presentation copy is available for a minimum $5.00 donation.
