Damaged Jessica’s First Prayer


(2 customer reviews)

Over 100 years ago, a darkness loomed over Victorian England in which children were used and abused. Influenced by her mentor, Charles Dickens, Hesba Stretton exposed this darkness through her stories. She won widespread fame for Jessica’s First Prayer and was considered one of the most popular writers of the 19th century. This beloved story sold at least a million and a half copies, outselling Alice in Wonderland by “nearly ten times as many.”

Today we bring Hesba Stretton’s story to life as a world-class audio drama, Jessica’s Journey. A web of characters becomes entangled with the knowledge of past sins; a minister, a miser, and an unfit mother experience miraculous redemption through their connection with little Jessica and her answer to prayer.

    A Simple Trust in Prayer Jessica’s First Prayer exemplifies simple trust in the message that God loves us when we come to him in innocence. The story exposes the reader to the life of a poor girl in England, who finds friendship from a man who is also struggling, but with religious performance issues, and acceptance in the eyes of his superiors. Jessica’s willingness to believe in his God, while loving him regardless of his misunderstanding of how to boldly live the message of abandonment to Christ, is sweet and whole. Inspires one to believe in praying with nothing but trust. Ages 6 and up would love this book.
