Praying With Your Child: Spontaneous Prayer

prayinghandsOur God encourages us to come to Him in prayer anytime, anywhere. This is a wonderful thing to model for our children! The next time your child is worried, upset, or angry, try turning to prayer first. (“I see how mad you are at your sister. Lord, help us to work out this problem in the way You want us to.”) You can also look for opportunities to pray for others this way (“Oh, that little boy looks really sad that it’s time to go home. Lord, please help him to know You’re with him when he’s sad.”)

After a while, your child may delight you with spontaneous prayers of his or her own!
