Daily Prayer-A Child’s Prayer


We all have a daily prayer that we pray every day. However, when it comes to our children they need to pray a prayer too. Some of us were brought up to say a certain prayer every night before we go to bed. As we came to be adults we have pass the along to our children. That is something that is something that is ingrained into you.
More than anything in today’s society with so many senseless crimes as parents we need to prayer over our children in every way that we know how. Then we need to train our children to pray too. Speaking life into their lives will be a blessing to them.
Here is an explanation of what a Childs prayer would contain:
A Christian child's prayer is Christian prayer recited primarily by children that is typically short, rhyming or has a memorable tune. It is said before bedtime, to give thanks for a meal, or as a nursery rhyme. Many of these prayers have a long tradition and come directly from the Bible. Some adult prayers are equally popular with children, such as the Golden Rule (Luke 6:31, Matthew 7:12), the Doxology, the Serenity Prayer, John 3:16 and, for older children, The Lord's Prayer and Psalm 23.
This is a simple prayer for you to train your child to say every day:
A Child's Prayer for Morning
 Now, before I run to play,
 Let me not forget to pray
 To God who kept me through the night
 And waked me with the morning light.
 Help me, Lord, to love thee more
 Than I ever loved before,
 In my work and in my play
 Be thou with me through the day.
 Amen.

When we raise our children up like the bible says then it will become a lifestyle for our child and not a habit. Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

  1. Train a child up the way to go and when he get older he want flee. Training starts at home. If you teach your child to fear God then you have given him a foundation to live on for life...

    1. Hi Shelia, yes indeed this is where it starts. The deposits you place in a child when they are young will be with them a lifetime. Thank you for your comment. God bless you richly!
