How many of us have struggled in the area of prayer and teaching our children to pray or praying with our children. In the business of life, it can be easily set aside or forgotten. Reminding ourselves of the greatest need our children have, Jesus, means helping them make spending time with him a priority. What better way than around the dinner table or after dinner or even at the beginning of the day. Our simple prayer guides are an onboarding ramp for families to use in order to equip their children with a prayer strategy that is easy to use and effective.
Testimony from South Asia
Today’s story comes from a country in S. Asia where only 2 percent of the population is Christian. This father wrote,
My name is Nawaz Nazir. I am a father of three kids. My kids love to attend the Sunday school class each week. They always love to participate in different activities of their Sunday school. For last one month I have observed a huge change in my kids lives. They have started praying three times a day at home for short time. They also asked me & their mother to sit with them & pray. I have also seen the prayer booklet and prayer cards in their hands. Last week I met with their teacher and shared the change in them. She said that we have just finished 10 lessons of a beautiful “Prayer Covenant” curriculum, focused on prayer and intercession. As a father of three, I am very thankful to The Prayer Covenant for an amazing & spiritual change in my kids. God Bless you.
Of course, we know it is God at work within them, hearing and answering prayer, His Spirit filling them and giving them a growing desire to pray. How often Jesus left the crowds to spend time with his Father in prayer. It is why the disciples asked Jesus, “Teach us to pray.”
Children often say, “I feel so peaceful when I pray.” We know Jesus is the source of all peace. He’s the source of hope and wisdom. All that we desire for our children is found in Him and is simply ours for the asking.
As you teach young ones to pray, keep it simple, keep it fun, and keep it intentional. You’ll soon see, your children will be the ones reminding you it’s time to pray!
