How much time did you spend together?
It was as much as possible wasn’t it?
A way to explain to your kids about the importance of prayer: Use conversation with a friend as an example.
Put it this way…
- Do you enjoy hanging out and spending time with your friends?
- Do you like talking to your friends?
- Do you talk to your friends only when you need something?
- Is part of being a friend, listening to your friend?
Our friendships need this “feeding.”
- Jesus is our friend. (Jesus would very much like to be our friend!) Jesus likes spending time with us.
- The way we talk with Jesus is prayer.
- Prayer isn’t just for asking for something. (Though it is OK to ask for things.)
- Prayer includes listening to God.
Prayer is a dialog between God and us. We can talk to God any time, any place. We don’t need a good connection, or a charged battery. God is always available. God wants to hear from us!
How is your friendship with God?
