When my nephew was a baby, he was an extremely impatient when it came to his food. If he saw his bottle, he wanted it right then and not a minute later. He would holler his head off until the bottle was in his hand. My mother, even then, would make sure to pray for his bottle. She’d grab his hands, place the bottle between them, and say, “Bless this food dear Lord, amen.”
This past Christmas, I was at my in-laws for dinner and my husband’s nephew sat there and we all did the litte prayer, “Bless these oh Lord and these thy gifts we are about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, amen.” He stared at us with a smile on his face and his mother made sure he did the sign of the cross.
Prayer is a very important part of Christian’s life. You’re never to young to start praying. It allows us to know we can talk to our Father and tell Him everything that is on our heart. It teaches us to be more dependent on Him and to learn to seek His will in our lives. What better way to help our children than to teach them how to pray.
Join me as I talk with Lakeyshuh Carolina, author of the book How Do I Pray to God: A Children’s Prayer Book. Children today are bombarded with feelings and situations that make them feel awkward, afraid, sad or worried. This book is filled with prayers that children can relate with, and that can also give them more knowledge and understanding of what they are praying for. This book will teach children that their prayers can be heard by God, and help them to get to know God on a more personal level. It will also let children know that if anything is on their mind and they can’t talk to anyone else; they can always speak to God.
