Pray With Me Podcast interview with Grace Urbanski

Grace Mazza Urbanski, children’s ministry director for the Apostleship of Prayer, gives practical advice on how to help children find opportunities to pray throughout the day. Using warmth, humor, and passion, Urbanski draws on personal experience to show how families are brought closer together through deeper contact with God.

There are opportunities for children to pray everywhere—when a friend gets hurt on the playground, before a test in the classroom, and even as they hear ambulance sirens while riding in the car with mom or dad—not just at meals and bedtime. In Pray with Me, Urbanski identifies seven ways that parents can help deepen their child’s relationship with God by using everyday life as a trigger for prayer. She shows how spontaneous prayer, traditional prayers you know by heart, scripture, song, silence, and reflection help families draw closer to God and each other.  

Urbanski weaves personal stories with a heartfelt devotion to Christ to teach parents how to help their children learn to respond to life in prayer.

"A practical, down-to-earth guide."

"Pray with Me, a practical, down-to-earth guide, is filled with suggestions for helping you, your children, and your grandchildren to make prayer a part of everyday life. The author examines memorized prayer, sung prayer, lectio divina, Ignatian and other forms of prayer, and how to experience them with youngsters. At the same time, it assists parents and grandparents in deepening their own prayer life, leading to strong family bonds with Jesus and one another."

"In Pray with Me, Grace Mazza Urbanski walks alongside parents in a thoughtful consideration of the gift of prayer. Grace shares from her theological expertise and a mother’s caring heart to inspire you into a dialogue with God and your family. She gives us highly useful ideas to make prayer an active part of our domestic church. I highly recommend this for any parent, grandparent, son, or daughter looking to grow closer to God and their loved ones."

"A smart, engaging, and thoughtful book."

"Grace Mazza Urbanski has gifted us with a smart, engaging, and thoughtful book to jump-start prayer life with our children. Pray with Me is a great way to invite young parents to see the goodness of God in the midst of the messy calling known as parenting."

"Fun and inspiring."

"At the turn of millennium, Pope St. John Paul II said that our communities need to be ‘schools of prayer.’ Through personal stories and very practical suggestions, Grace Mazza Urbanski provides the material for families to become schools of prayer. She does so in a humorous and moving way that makes Pray with Me both fun and inspiring."

Rev. James Kubicki, S.J.
