The first guide to a contemplative prayer practice for children, Journey to the Heart both instructs and inspires.


Centering prayer is a way of opening our whole being to God, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. It is simple and practical--a way of preparing heart and mind to receive the gift of intimate relationship with God. Jesus said, "When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:6) Frank Jelenek shows young children just how to do that!
