Memory Verse Monday - 1 Thessalonians 5:16 on Prayer

Teaching your children the importance of prayer is way up there with teaching them to read and memorize God’s Word. Super man and I want our children to learn the importance of praying continually. It is such a comfort to walk through each day connected to God our Father. He calls us to pray without ceasing!

“Be joyful always; pray continually and give thanks in all circumstances.”

- 1 Thessalonians 5:16 -18 -

We have found that the best way to teach...well anything but especially this… is to lead by example. We pray about everything that happens throughout our day.

  • Little Buddy can’t sleep? Let’s ask Jesus to help him rest.
  • Having a tough morning because Sweet Angel is being disobedient? Ask God to help her obey.
  • Is Mommy cranky and tired? Ask Jesus to help her feel better and to give her patience!
I love it when I catch Sweet Angel saying little prayers throughout the day. There is almost nothing that warms my heat more than when she suggests that we stop and pray!

This is a cute little prayer book for Toddlers. It contains prayers for many situations that you can use as a guide as you begin to teach your children to pray.

Prayers For Little Hearts (Little Blessings)

"...Keep me from doing wrong things on purpose..."

"...Help me not to wory about anything but to pray about everything..."
