“Prayer is as natural an expression of faith as breathing is of life.”
~ Jonathan Edwards ~
Ever since my two boys were still inside my tummy, both, my husband and I prayed together with our unborn babies…
When they were babies, we prayed together with them…
When they grow up become toddlers, slowly, we asked them to pray together with us and follow our prayer
Now they can pray by themselves and pray for others as well.
Teaching our kids how to pray is very important so they will understand that God always be there and listen to their prayer. That’s one of ways to talk to God.
Last night, JJ cannot sleep and I asked him why he cannot sleep. He told me that because he wanted the daddy to be in his room and sleep with him. I told him that the daddy need to do something.
I asked JJ to pray and tell Jesus that he cannot sleep.
In the morning, he told me that he fell asleep after he prayed.
One day, after school, TT told me that his teacher’s leg is pain and he said that he want to pray for her before he sleep. It remind me to JJ when he was still at nursery class, he also once prayed for his teacher.
These are only few samples, now they love to pray.. Develop a good habit such as prayer is the good one.
Kids will learn and understand that they need to pray everyday, any time as they need air to breath.
” To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing.”
– Martin Luther King Jr –
