Teaching Kids to Pray

What parent doesn’t want to raise well-balanced, resilient kids? Of course, we want our kids to be healthy and strong. For their physical strength, we encourage them to be active and eat healthy foods. For their emotional strength, we encourage activities with their BFF’s and teach them to prevent bullying when they see it. So what can we do, as parents, to support their spiritual strength?

Pray for them, and teach them to pray, wherever, whenever, whatever they are doing. They can always pray! Yes, even in school. Yes, while waiting at the bus stop or walking home, Yes, before meals and at bedtime. Prayer always instills strength and resilience, for when God is for us, who can be against us?
