Prayers for Children: Simple Prayers that Help Them Grow in Faith

Do you ever pray with your children? Prayer is a powerful tool that can help children grow in their faith. It is a way to connect with God and communicate with Him on a personal level. In this blog post, we will discuss some simple prayers that you can say with your children. These prayers for children are short, easy to remember, and full of faith-building power!

It’s easier to tell our children to say their prayers than it is to show them how. Praying aloud is a strong declaration of faith. Although many of us feel at ease praying out loud in a group, others are afraid to communicate prayer with their own children.

Even when we are brave enough, we frequently let the opportunity to pray with our children slip through our fingers as we rush about during the day. Setting aside time to pray with our children sets a precedent for them to cope with life in conversation with God, even if they do not feel confident doing it themselves.

Deuteronomy 11:19 tell us to “Teach these things to your children. Talk about them when you’re sitting together in your home and when you’re walking together down the road. Make them the last thing you talk about before you go to bed and the first thing you talk about the next morning.”

We may pray to the Lord for assistance in passing down His message through prayer with the tiny lives He has entrusted us with on this earth when it appears difficult to broken down faith to our children.
