A Child's Prayer


A few weeks ago a 4 year old girl stood up in front of her Sunday school and led them in this prayer. The teachers heard this prayer and they were so impressed they wanted to share this great prayer with everyone! So here is her prayer....


Dear God

Thank you for your special son

Who came to show that your the one

He came to wash our sins away

So we can live in Heaven someday.

Your gift of Jesus

Helps me see

How much you love and care for me.

Amen.


Try teaching this prayer to your younger kids and see what happens!

Overcoming Obstacles: Part 3



During our Parenting the Faith Journey seminar we had the opportunity to watch a skit that illustrated some of the obstacles families face when trying to focus on the spiritual development of their kids. One of the obstacles was just learning how to help your kids grow in faith. Below is the list of ideas Parents came up with on how they could learn more ways to talk to their kids about faith:

Overcoming Obstacles Part 2


During our Parenting the Faith Journey seminar we had the opportunity to watch a skit that illustrated some of the obstacles families face when trying to focus on the spiritual development of their kids. One of the obstacles was missing opportunities where faith could be easily brought in everday life. Below is a list of ideas Parents came up with on how to overcome this obstacle:

• Talk and model for/with your kids
• Regular prayer time
• Involve kids
• Read from the Bible vs. other stories
• Take opportunities to pray for things every day (friends, family, the world)
• Watch Christian cartoons, movies, listen to Christian music
• Participate in Faithworks up at the church as a family
• Participate in mission opportunities at church (Operation Christmas child, book donations, bring offering to Sunday school every weekend)
• Answer questions about God honestly, give them the time to ask questions
• Participate in ministry events
• Attend church each weekend
• Make faith a part of every day and all things
• Point out things in the world and relate them to faith/God
• Participate in fewer activities
• Eat meals together
• Volunteer at church in Sunday school and spend time there with your child
• Tie holidays to faith
• Do the GPS
• Have a family praying spot
• Put prayer time and family faith time on the calendar
• Ask your kids what they would like to pray about and what they are thankful for

Overcoming Obstacles Part 1


During our Parenting the Faith Journey seminar we had the opportunity to watch a skit that illustrated some of the obstacles families face when trying to focus on the spiritual development of their kids. One of the obstacles was not enough time. So here are some ideas from our parents on how to Create Time:

• Turn off the computer, TV, cell phone
• Get up earlier
• Utilize meal times
• Use day to day activities and play time
• Pray together at meals and at bedtime
• Utilize down time/wait time – when waiting at restaurants, in car lines, at the grocery store
• Establish routines before “common” activities such as bedtime, mealtime, riding in the car
• Decrease the number of activities our kids are in to make church, time together a priority
• Put family faith time on the calendar, schedule it
• Talk during bath time
• Make and eat dinner together and talk
• Use time in the car
• Incorporate “God moments” in every day activities
• Listen to Christian music at home and in the car
