(Matthew 7:7-8; James 5:16)
The Situation: Kids wonder, “Will God really answer my prayers?“ Some children think that God is too big or too busy to hear their requests. Others feel too awkward or unworthy to speak with Him. Still others stop praying after a request is not granted.
The Solution: God yearns to hear from His children! The Lord speaks to us via the Scriptures. We respond to Him via prayer. God created people to enjoy unbroken communion with Him. Prayer can be as natural as eat- ing and sleeping.
What You Can Do: Pray together—from the time you awaken your child in the morning until you tuck him or her in bed at night. Practice using the “H-E-A-R-T” acrostic:
Honor God with praise and respect. Examine your life, confessing any sins. Ask God to supply your personal needs. Request God’s help for the needs of others. Thank God for blessing you every day.
