Psalm 37:7

Wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him."

Praying with your kids - Prayer is such an important part of our relationship with God! Jesus thought it so important that He gave His disciples a model to teach them how to pray (Matthew 6:5-13). We must also teach and model prayer to our kids. I encourage you to take advantage of daily opportunities to share prayer with your child - in the car, on a walk, before bedtime, at dinnertime... any place or time!

Below is a simple prayer model to encourage our younger kids to TALK to God:
Prayer is talking to God. When you TALK, you:

T - Tell God about your day

A - Ask God for forgiveness and guidance

L - Listen to what God is saying to you

K - Know that God is crazy about you and that He loves when you TALK to Him!

To pray with my children is such a blessing. When I hear them pray, it gives me a peace to know that they are learning to call on Jesus for all they need anytime. It gives them a comfort and security, especially when their parents aren't around. Teach them to depend on Him.

Morning, Noon and Night....Prayers come together and up, up they go for the Lord to hear. We rest in Him for everything.  

Teach them, show them and pray with them often and they will begin to TALK to Jesus.

Jesus loves the little children
All the children of the world
Red, Brown, Yellow,
Black and White
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children
Of the world.

Loving and praying for all our children and families of the world,

Thank you, Outdoor Mama. I have such a hunger to share prayer, especially with children and encourage parents of children. I see how wonderful and what an absolute blessing it is with my own children. This generation of children are in dire need of prayer.

So in the meantime, I'm praying for those who don't know yet, to come to learn in their own way and time. Which will lead to an intimate relationship with God, the ultimate prize!
