Teaching Children How to Pray

Every night, we gather in the girls’ bedroom and pray together as a family. We want the girls to learn the important work of praying with one another; we want them to realize that we are all coming before God’s throne and presenting our gratitude and requests as one. If you think that the way we describe “prayer” would be helpful for your children, you could let them watch this video and talk about what this looks like in their own lives.


Jesus said, “…where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them…” Matthew 18:20

    Just found your blog! Love the post! I just blogged about some tips for moms of young children which include memorizing Bible verses with toddlers!

    Thank you so much! This was perfectly timed for my family. We have been addressing this very issue with our children who tend to goof off while someone else is praying. I can’t wait to show them this tomorrow! (I also shared it on FB because I am sure there are many more mommies who would benefit.)

Let's keep in touch!
