Bible Verse for Today
Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. (Ephesians 6:18)
The importance of prayer can’t be overvalued. We can find many stories and testimonies of how prayer made miracles and changed the lives not only of those who prayed but also of other people as well.
Let’s take a look at the song “Lady Who Prays for Me” from Robert Hamlet. He wrote it for his mother, who prayed for her sons every morning. Once the mother heard this song, it touched her and she also began to pray with her little son before leaving the home in the morning. Children also started to pray together and told their friends.
In the letter to the Ephesians, Paul reminds us: “Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication“. (Ephesians 6:18) It is very important that when we live in a family, we should pray together with our children. Children learn to know God and to pray through the people who are close – parents, grandparents, sisters, or brothers. There is no better way to emphasize the importance of prayer than to pray for and with our children.
In such a way we show them a personal example and teach them to pray constantly. So they can experience for themselves and learn how important it is to turn to God personally in prayer.
Teaching children to pray daily is the best gift from us, which will be with them all their life. We give them the assurance that God is an integral part of our lives. God is always with us as a loving, guiding, caring heavenly Father.
