Call on Me: A Prayer Book for Young People is a prayer book specifically designed for youth to use whenever and wherever you are. It has prayers for school, friends, family and for yourself. This website is our way of giving you a place to learn more about prayer, go deeper into your conversation with God, and offer your own prayers. Using already-written prayers can suggest new ways of thinking and praying. They can be models andy might be the prayers you need. Sometimes you need to finding your own words. So here’s a place to offer them. When offering a prayer for someone on this site, please only use first names. And you’ll be asked to “sign in” to be part of our site too – use your first name also when creating a profile.
