This week I have been poring over examples of prayer . . . and thinking about kids, particularly preschoolers and beginning readers, but the ideas apply to kids of all ages (including those who are grown up). The topic of parents praying with their children seems so appropriate as we near Father's Day.
Three verses continue to come to mind.
First . . .
“Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching,and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 (HCSB)
And . . .
Start children off on the way they should go,and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. Ephesians 6:18 (NLT)
Here are some times we can pray with them:
- when they are happy
- when they are sad
- when they are thankful
- when they are sick
- when they are lonely
- when they are ready to eat
- when they are ready to sleep
