The Prayer Covenant has amazing partners from ministries large and small around the world including Campus Crusade for Christ, Every Home for Christ, Kings Kids International, All Africa Baptist Youth Fellowship as well as many churches and grass roots leaders. Leaders have often shared that children do not want to pray because they do not know how to pray but once they are taught; once they begin their prayer journey, they grow in confidence—not feeling ashamed to pray aloud and even boldly leading in prayer within their homes and Sunday schools. That is what the prayer covenant is all about. Teaching children throughout the world to pray. Prayer is so important because it is the number one way we can nurture a child’s relationship with Jesus Christ.
Deep Connection with God
This young girl wrote “My name is Ruth Aslam. I am 12 years old. I always find it very difficult to pray in my family or in front of anyone. I never realized that Prayer is simply talking with your friend; that it is a relationship of friendship & deep connection with God. Even though when we pray in a simple or broken words God will listen to our prayers because He looks at our hearts. I came to know the real meaning of Prayer from ”The Prayer Covenant” lessons in my school and it has brought a big revival in my life. I feel confident after completing 10 lessons of The Prayer Covenant. Now I can pray in a big gathering, in front of my family & friends. Thank you “The Prayer Covenant” for helping me by teaching me and giving me courage to pray.
Are there children in your life you want to empower by teaching them to pray? Or children you want to see growing in prayer? I’m often asked for tips on doing so. My advice after serving in children’s ministries for over 30 years is this: Keep it simple, keep it fun, keep it intentional. It’s wonderful to see the fruit of teaching littles ones to pray – their joy, confidence and excitement is contagious. Let us pray together.
Father, we ask you continually teach us to pray and guide each one of us to those young ones in our lives who we can encourage on their prayer journey. We ask that you go before us, open doors of opportunity whether in small groups, Sunday schools, or within our homes. Bless and empower each of our listeners today. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
