Teaching your child to pray can be a natural part of your day. Here are some of the ideas we have implemented in our home.

Prayer Journals

Thankful for a safe trip home from holiday.

Creating prayer journals with our children has been a really practical way for us to take time out in the day and focus on things that were close to their hearts, be thankful, or think about the needs of others.

I bought the children each a blank scrapbook type of book and each night we would sit and draw things that we would like to pray about. This became a great time of discussion as they drew and shared the things they wanted to talk about to God.

We prayed for friends who were sick, missionaries, family members and whoever they felt they would like to pray for. We thanked God for the fresh strawberries we picked that afternoon, warm slippers and walks with friends. It was such a joy to go back and look at what we had prayed for and thank God for answered prayers. My children still look at the first journals we made and smile.
