March 26, 2020

Guided Prayers for Children - Episode No. 14

Dr. Melanie Dobson leads two prayers for children. First, Morning Prayer for Children: The Balloon Breath. This breath prayer is a wonderful way to calm and center in the morning.

Next, Night Prayer for Children: Ignatian Examen. This prayer was developed by Ignatius of Loyola for his fellow monks, the Society of Friends, in the mid-1500s. It is a practice of seeing God in the good and the bad of the day.
