I imagine some of you in the Pray!
Network are pretty passionate about helping children learn to pray. Maybe you're a parent or grandparent, a Sunday school or VBS teacher, or you might lead the mid-week children's program. I'd like to make a few suggestions to help you in your ministry.
First, perhaps one of you would like to start a group here on the Pray! Network around the topic of teaching children to pray. To do so, go to the groups tab at the top of the page and follow the instructions. Others of you may know of children's prayer events or ministry training events for children's prayer leaders. If so, tell the rest of the Network by going to the Events tab and posting it for everyone to see. Or, you may have some great ideas about how to help children pray. Why not post a blog so others can learn from your experience?
has a number of tried-and-true resources to help you. There's a monthly e-newsletter called PrayKids Online News
that you can subscribe to for free simply by going to www.praymag.com
finding the "stay current with our online newsletters" box and clicking on PrayKids! Online News.
After you've signed up for that, go to the menu on the left and click on "teaching kids." When you do, you'll be directed to a number of great tools--prayer cards, curriculum, books--that can help you help children deepen their relationship with God through prayer.
Thanks to all of you who teach our children to pray. Our future depends on it!
