How I'm Teaching My Child To Pray

Who here loves Jesus?!  Amen!

Sundays are one of my favorite days.  I love waking up knowing I'll be heading to church with my family and that I'll be surrounded by like-minded people who came to praise our savior.  Church used to scare me but once I accepted Jesus into my heart everything changed.  I love going to church now!

Anyway, I know that church on Sunday is just the beginning of worship and I don't only want to participate on Sundays, I want to talk to God every single day.  I want to be able to teach my children to feel safe to reach out in prayer when they feel the need and I'm working on this with my almost four year old.  I know I have to keep it super simple with her so here is what I do ..

  1. Have her thank God for something they did or saw today
  2. Have her pray for someone else
  3. Ending with "In Jesus' name we pray, Amen"

That's it!  I know there are so many other things that go into the act of praying and let's be honest, I'm still learning to pray myself, but I feel like it's a bonding experience to learn together, too.
