Praying at Home - Resources

Need some ideas for praying with your kids? 

Heartland Kids has you covered!  We will be regularly posting new ideas and resources for praying at home with your kids.

Here is a great starting point with three simple ideas:

1.  Pause and pray at mealtimes.

Pausing to pray before meals is a great way to bring the family together around the table.  Being thankful creates a happy heart and modeling this thankfulness at mealtime promotes joy!

2.  Pause and pray when you wash your hands.

We are washing our hands a lot today.  As you are washing, it’s easy to let your mind wander aimlessly.  In order to harness that minute of thought, ask the Lord for forgiveness and cleansing while the water runs over your hands.  Associating the acts of forgiveness and cleansing with hand-washing time is a beautiful picture of God’s grace that children can easily remember.

3.  Pause and pray when you need help.

Is homework or doing school at home in a new way causing extra frustration?  Stopping to pray invites the Lord into the struggle and provides strength to continue trying. 

Perhaps your child is struggling with a friend issue or your family is experiencing a financial need.  To ask the Lord for help whenever we need it is a great way to teach your child to rely on Him for all needs.

Lose an item in your house?  Ask God to help you find the item. 

It’s a wonderful thing to watch children talk about how God answers their prayers. 

Teaching children to pray is a rewarding experience that brings benefits for a lifetime.
