The best thing that you can do for your children to build Christian character is to pray with them and for them. I used to be afraid to pray in public but I soon realized that prayer is just your sincere praise and requests to God and that most people like for them to be authentic.

When teaching your children to pray, we must first make sure that they understand what a prayer is. Most children want to pray for more toys or material possessions. But that is normal for a child who has not been educated. There is nothing wrong with teaching kids that God is wanting to give us everything that we need in this life. But not everything that we want.

When a child prays, it should start out simple with the premise of asking the Lord to take care of others instead of ourselves. Then we can pray and give thanks for the blessings (toys) that the Lord has allowed for them to have.

Learning to pray, whether you are an adult or child, should be a phasing process. Don’t try to imitate or duplicate anyone else’s pray. Be authentic and specific. The Lord knows when you are.
