Teaching your children to pray

Being persistent is important. Starting them young is important. Making it fun is essential. Don’t make it something you drill into them to do. They won’t like it. Prayer is talking to God. We tell Frankie that the same way he says good morning and good night to mommy and daddy everyday, then in the same manner he must do the same with God. Since Frankie goes to Catholic School they don’t eat until they pray and thank Jesus for the meal they are about to have so that is of great help in making sure he knows how important prayer is. Most important, no matter where you are or with whom, be an example to your child and don’t let them shy away from prayer.
