Praying with Fire is a curriculum on Tefillah for Orthodox students in grades 3-8, which offers tips on focusing, concentration and optimism, and appreciating the gift of tefillah.
“Life isn’t always simple, even (especially?) for teens. But, whatever is going on in your life – problems at school, challenges at home, complications with friends, or just an “I-woke-up-feeling-horrible” day – Hashem has given us a no-fail way to cope. It’s called tefillah, prayer. “Praying With Fire for Teens” shows teenagers (their parents, too!) how to pray effectively, with focus, concentration, and optimism, so that we get the most out of the fantastic gift Hashem has given us – the gift of prayer.”
