A Lamp & A Light: A Lectio Divina Journal for Kids


Teach your children how to pray with Scripture the way the Church has done for centuries.

Lectio divina is an ancient practice rooted in the early Church. The purpose is to pray with Scripture, allowing the Lord to speak to us through His Word. This is the method employed by saints throughout the history of the Church! 

We made this lectio divina journal for kids ages 8-18. Each spread walks the child through the four movements of lectio divina:

  • Lectio (Reading)
  • Meditatio (Meditation)
  • Oratio (Prayer)
  • Contemplatio (Contemplation)

With intentional, repetitive prompting questions, the child will build the habit of prayerful reflection on the Word of God.

We provide 40 carefully-selected Scripture passages for them that engage the imagination and lend themselves well to this prayer. Then, we leave them 20 blank pages for them to select their own Scripture passage with which to pray! 

The journal is meant for boys and girls. It has a dark navy, vegan leather cover, thick interior pages that stand up to pens and highlighters, and a satin gold ribbon for place holding.

It is the perfect meaningful Christmas, birthday, or Confirmation gift!

A Wonderful Personal Prayer Tool for Kids!

Thank you, Into the Deep, for designing such a thoughtful, beautiful, and well made prayer journal. I have been looking for a guided way to introduce my 9 year-old daughter to personal prayer with the Scriptures, and this has been the perfect resource. I came downstairs the other morning and found her sitting at the kitchen table, deep in prayer, thinking and praying with her journal and her favorite Bible. What a gift it is that she is learning Lectio Divina at this age! Thank you for working with the Holy Spirit to make this possible! It also came beautifully packaged, which added to the joy and anticipation of opening a new way to encounter the Lord. Having the physical reminder of this journal has helped us carve out more time for prayer. Thank you!

Its a great resource

My girls 10 and 12 just started using it. As a Catholic homeschooling family I am glad that we can now set aside the regular just positive journals and have one that has a motive, intention, and a purpose. It’s a great resource to help them read the word of God and look at it in a deeper way. I love that it gives them an opportunity to also pray and write it to later go back and remember that moment. As a mother I love knowing that they are taking in so much richness through Gods word and filling their hearts and minds with so much goodness that I know the Lord will deposit in their hearts hoping that at the same time they are creating habits that will stay with them through life. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your review, Monica, we are so glad our products are working for your family! What a beautiful family! Praise the Lord!
