Making sure our kids pray and communicate with God is no easy task. It is at that time that they want to play, eat, sleep, bathe, study, run for president or call their friends. Anything seems better that taking the time to remember all the good things we’ve had that day, and all the things we can improve tomorrow. Every day, Prayer time has to become friendlier to them so they allow themselves to do it. As adults we can stop what we’re doing, and easily close our eyes to pray. If we really want to, of course. You see, prayer is an important protection charm we’re teaching our children.
In those minutes that we remember all the people we know that need something from God, all the relatives that we love and wish them well, all the persons we don’t know of but have heard, that need God, we are stepping out of ourselves for a while and thinking of the needs of others. I’m sure that if most of us could do that more often, the World would shift to a brighter day.
Whenever they feel fear, we close our eyes and tell God about it. On our way to school, we make sure to tell Him about what we prefer to receive that day. What we wish we do not get. And since saying stuff out loud programs our brains to make sure we get just that, God just helps us on our journey.
So, no matter how difficult it may be to begin, prayer is always on our to-do list. It is a great way to make the children humble and honest not only with others, but also to themselves.
