Prayer is our direct line to God. Isn’t it awesome that He gave us the ability to come directly to Him without going through someone else? As big as God is, He hears our questions, our supplications, and our thanksgiving, and even allows us to let loose on Him a little bit when in our limited capacity we don’t understand why life is what it is sometimes.
For some people prayer comes naturally. They pray for everything and everyone. But for others of us, it’s a learned behavior. We need to work at it to make it a part of our everyday devotions.
Do you teach your children to pray? Jesus’ disciples knew they needed help in learning how to do it, but our children may not know to ask. I was curious how the readers of TGMT handle prayer with their children, so I’ve placed a poll about it in the sidebar. If you’re a subscriber (and thanks for subscribing, by the way) hop over to the site and plug your answers in. I’m curious to see where our tendencies lie.
Thanks to Calvin Wulf for the poll idea. Every once in awhile I put out a question or request for ideas on Twitter or Facebook, and friends are always generous enough to supply me with good ones. If you’re on one or both of those social media, I’d love for you to find me. I’ve met some really neat people who have been a tremendous blessing to both me and my ministry.
The poll will only be up for a week, so don’t delay in casting your answers. And while you’re at it, leave a comment about prayer or a suggestion for something you’d like to see covered on TGMT. I’ve been a little comment starved here lately (how’s that for unashamed begging?).
Answer the poll question, then leave a comment. What challenges or victories have you had with prayer and your children?
