Teaching Your Kids to Pray
When teaching kids to pray, Nancy Guthrie admits that thank you's dominate, and requests follow. Guthrie's desire is to see children grounded in the Scriptures and practicing real prayer. This requires that children understand who God is, which will help them move into prayers of confession--an aspect often missing in most family prayer times. Kids follow what we do more than what we say. If we want our kids to have an intimate relationship with God, we need to model that.
