Teaching Your Kids About Prayer

From the time your little ones can fold their arms and babble you begin teaching them to pray. (At least if you are religious). They learn to pray at dinner, at bedtime, at church, with the family. They learn that God loves them and wants to help them. He is only a prayer away if you are scared or sick. God knows your name and wants to help you if you but ask.

I didn't quite know what to say the other day when I heard Andy pray. In fact, I didn't say anything. I just told Scott about it later and we shared a laugh together.

Andy was playing his gameboy. He set the gameboy down on the couch next to him and folded his arms and said "Dear Heavenly Father. Please help me get to the next level. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

I am not saying that it's okay to pray over video games, but I suppose I can't doubt the faith of a child.
