Prayer Training...

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?

Please Share...

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hugs and Blessings,

Hi Amy, I am one of those people that pray constantly throughout the day. Little prayers sent up on wings of love. xo Diana

What a wonderful post about prayer. I have been doing a lot of thinking since I saw The War Room...and absolutely fantastic movie about the power of doing spiritual warfare and fighting for your family through prayer. I find myself praying often during the day in many places. I like the idea of keeping them pray without ceasing, almost like breathing. Of course I am not as disciplined in this as I would like to be. I love what you are doing with your children. They will always remember this!

What a beautiful post Amy, it just thrilled my heart to hear how you are teaching your children to pray! It is truly best to learn to "pray as you go", but we also need those times of concentrated prayer too! I love how you are teaching them to be thankful and pray as you hike in the woods, or as you come across someone who needs prayer. You are such a special mother, and what a beautiful thing you are teaching your children! Much love to you today across the miles :)

Amy, I love that you’re teaching the boys how to pray and read the word. It’s such a lost art today. Keep up the good work!
