Prayer is such an important part of a healthy, growing Christian life, and at Foundations Christian School, we believe it's vital to teach our kids how to pray. As parents, you have the most important job of all! However, many parents don't know how they should demonstrate to their kids the importance of prayer, or how to do it. We'd like to help.
1. Explain What Prayer Is - Kids understand things when we can break them down and make them simple. Tell your kids that because God is our friend, we should talk to Him just like we talk to any of our friends. Let them know that they can come to God with any problem they're facing, but that it's also important to just thank Him for things like our families and friends.
2. Include Prayer Time as a Family Activity - Do you pray as a family? You should! Praying as a family helps your kids understand that prayer really is (or should be) a part of our everyday lives. Make sure you let your kids know when prayers have been answered too, so they can see the power of God in your family's life.
3. Model Prayer for Your Child - Kids are watching everything we do as parents, so it's important for us to model the right behaviors. Pray in front of your kids, do your devotions in front of them, and sing praise songs in the kitchen when they're around. If you do, they'll want to do it too!
We're so blessed to be able to serve you and your children, here at Foundations Christian School. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family.
