While AR didn't really bring religion or prayers into his books, he is hardly alone in 20th century children's books. Enid Blyton's children (and dogs) never really had much to do with organized religion either.

In fact I am having trouble thinking of any well-known 20th century books apart from the Narnia books (and they aren't conventionally religious) in which God, religion or church are a significant part ofthe background. I am not referring to clergy as background characters like the parson in The Big Six but children going to church, praying etc..

I recall one mention of going to Holy Communion for Easter in one of the Fell Farm books and it sticks in my mind because it was unusual.
