This book helps the children and families begin their week right

Reverend Peter G. Vu published “Lord Jesus, I Want To See… Family/Children Edition,” an engaging prayer book for children and families. What push a priest to write a family devotional? 
Nowadays, children and families cannot memorize and recite traditional prayers. Children are already busy with sports, computer games, friends, and their social lives. Worse, they become an easy target for bad influences from a society that has become indifferent to faith and the temptations that abound due to the powers of darkness that is prevalent in society.
Reverend Vu realized that by making a prayer book designed for children and families, he can help them strengthen their faith in God and their prayer life.
“Lord Jesus, I Want To See helps its intended readers start their week right. The book gets them to reflect and work on specific topics such as friendship, faith, love, generosity, forgiveness, thankfulness, and more.
Reverend Vu hopes that through this book, children and families may grow closer to God and acquire Christian attributes and other qualities each day as they try to become better individuals in this challenging world.  
The book “Lord Jesus, I Want To See… Family/Children Edition” will be displayed in the upcoming 2018 New York Rights Fair on May 30, 2018.

He was a young boy when the Viet Nam War ended. He witnessed the war and the end of it with great horror and deep appreciation for peace. He grew up under the communist government system and endured lots of hardship. What helped him and many of his countrymen tremendously during those dark days was their faith and prayers. His love for prayer and meditation was able to blossom.
