I want to teach my children to have a close relationship with our Lord and Savior. Prayer habits that last a lifetime are most often formed in childhood. As adults model meaningful prayer lives, kids will learn how they, too, can talk to their Creator. That’s why each day this month I will be writing a prayer inspired by a different letter of the alphabet and sharing an accompanying verse from the Bible.
We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. He decreed statues for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our forefathers to teach their children.
Lord, I pray You help me to be a good role model as I teach my kids to know You. As a spiritual teacher, empower me to pray for them and with them. Help me to provide clear instruction and a consistent example so my children can form good prayer habits and a strong relationship with You. Give them a hunger for You. Give them a desire for prayer. I know I am not perfect, but I submit to You. I ask that as I follow Your example, Lord, they will follow mine and be people of prayer. Amen.
