Editorial Reviews


Praise for The Prayer
Sweetly rhythmic and smoothly rhyming, Stephan Myers' children's story, ThePrayer, reads a little like The Night Before Christmas crossed with atouch of Dickens. Humanly sad, spiritually haunting, and beautifullyfaithful without being tied to any faith. It's a lovely tale for anytime of year, and a wise lesson to guide a growing child. - Sheila Deeth VINE VOICE
Myers' vibrant illustrations will capture your heart; his voice will pulsatewith mesmerising cadence. A memorable and emotional Christmas tale,admirably rendered by Stephan J. Myers' visual lyricism and poeticsensitivity. - Mina's Bookshelf
In a ChristmasCarol, Ebeneezer finds redemption through the ghosts of Christmas past,present and future but with the Prayer, it's the reader who is offeredthe chance to save a homeless lantern boy. It's heart-achingly poignant, beautifully written and one of the most powerful and intimate reads aparent could ever share with a young child. - BookViral Reviews
Reading the words is easy. The brain readily absorbs the words and transposesthem to the heart where they will remain forever. What a wonderful giftthis book would be to your children and grandchildren to cement the true meaning of life and giving. To give love you must first be able toreceive it. Myers spells it out so brilliantly in just a few words. This story should be read at every family table at least twice a year, maybe more as our brain forgets things that our heart never will. - Author, Dr. John C House
Stephan J Myers has a real talent to spellbind the reader through his words,leaving us to ponder this meaningful story long after we read it. Thisis a tale with a powerful message and a reminder of the harsh realitythat so many wake up to every single day. If you are looking for a bookthat will bring a memorable life lesson to a child and adults alike,this is an outstanding read. Oh, and the illustrations are absolutelymagical! A memorable book by a very talented author that I highlyrecommend to be read, and shared with others. - Children's Author & Illustrator Sannel Larson
A wonderfully written and illustrated, thought-provoking storyreminiscent of Dickens. It leaves this reader contemplating his ownrecognition of less fortunate and silently needy persons who may haveonly their faith to guide them through the most difficult of times. Theisolation portrayed by the boy in this story is matched only by his hope and acceptance of his misfortune. I would recommend this book withoutreservation. - Author Brian A. McLaughlin
Beautiful, emotive short story with illustrations that perfectly complement thewords. It takes immense talent to be able to use simple words to conveysuch a powerful message yet this talented storyteller and wordsmith hasachieved this with consummate ease. This thought-provoking book willbring a tear to many an eye and remain in the memory long after the last page is read. Brilliant! - Author Deb McEwan

From the Inside Flap

All I ask is a promise, that you will never forget the meaning in these words.
