Good Morning All!
Has was your week?
It's been a busy week here, but then again it appears as we are all the time.
I personally would like the busyness to settle down
and that I can enjoy being at home more.
Yes, being a Keeper of my Home, does still keep me busy
and I still have things to do outside of my 4 walls.
I have been doing a lot of praying lately and it seems
to be something I need often.
Do you have a specific prayer time?
Or do you pray through out the day?
I have been training my children on the importance of Prayer.
To start our mornings we have
Prayer time and we dig into scriptures.
We are studying the Fruits of the Spirit this month.
The boys love it and it teaches them to where they can understand it.
Reading your Bibles is a must!
Another way I have taught them to pray is by using Nature.
When we are in the mountains, we pray as we walk and hike.
Thanking God for His amazing creation.
Another thing with boys I noticed is
I need to keep the prayers short.
Pray specifically for something,
but don't draw it out into this long prayer.
They tend to get a bit antsy!
In the past, I have had my boys make prayer lists.
Anybody they want to pray for.
It can be a few people or a few simple things that need prayer.
We remember to pray for others, friends, family, people on the street.
Anyone my kids see that needs lifted up.
My youngest son, always finds
that special someone to pray for!
I've taught them to Praise Jesus often!
Don't just ask God for something,
Thank Him for what we all ready have!
This is a huge one! We are all so Blessed!
Pray out loud, separate and as a family!
The devil hates it when we pray aloud!
Sing your prayers and speak them loudly!
Start a Prayer Chain with your kids
Get them motivated to write!
Use this as part of their school.
I do and my boys like to have a prayer list!
Sometimes they need a visual...
Teaching your kids to Pray is HUGE!
Grow their Faith!
And watch them grow in leaps and bounds...
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach
and admonish one another with all wisdom,
and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
with gratitude in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, do it all in the name
of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to the Father through him.
-The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Colossians
Is there something you have taught your kids on Prayer?
I hope you all have a great weekend!
Hugs and Blessings,
