Speaking To Children About Speaking To God

Aug 18, 2007
Many parents want to make sure that their children begin speaking to God early in life. They will set up a routine for the children that will allow them to get into the habit of speaking to God every night before they go to bed. The conversations with God will be fairly brief, but they will focus on making the child familiar that they have a soul and that the soul can be taken if they pass away.

This nightly routine will instill in the child that speaking to God at bedtime is the best, but that there is no particular time that is not suitable for speaking to God. From the nightly prayers, children will learn that by speaking to God they can also help others to be blessed. Speaking to children about God can be a fun experience for parent and child and sharing the nightly prayer ritual together will help bond them to one another for the remainder of their life.

Children learn that they are able to make the nightly ritual more personal when they are able to pick and choose the names of the people that they want to be included in their nightly prayers for a blessing from the Lord. This one nightly ritual of praying can also teach children humility because they learn to get on their knees before the Lord when they are speaking to Him.

When speaking to children about speaking to God, many Sunday school teachers will offer pictures as proof that Jesus walked on the Earth, and the children will also learn that Jesus had compassion for people, and a love for many different types of animals. Children enjoy the sheep in the pictures and the parents use those animals to confer on their children that the hand of God is soft and can touch the heart of every man in one way or the other and all of the ways will feel extremely comforting.

When speaking about God, parents will usually start at the beginning and teach their children how we all came into being. From the teachings in the Book of Genesis, the children will learn all about how God entrusted a long lineage of people to one man and one woman. By speaking in this manner, children are spared all of the talk about evil but are made aware that evil has a way of changing things in peoples life and not for the good.

The nightly conversations with God will become longer as the children discover more about what God's plan are for their life. Through speaking to God, children will learn the path that they should take but it make take several conversations to understand the entire conversation. Evil has a way of interrupting the conversations with God, and some people are strong enough to ignore the evil and continue speaking to God as if nothing had happened.
