Pray with Your Kids

Invite God into your home.

Raising faithful kids can seem like a daunting task, but you can help them experience God through simple family prayer. You don’t need to be an expert to invite God into your home. This step helps you get started with ideas and stories from other parents that you can adapt to fit your family.

You don't have to be the expert.

Praying together gives your kids the tools they need to connect with God every day. As you build a prayer routine, your family will get used to talking to God. Give your kids a habit that will last a lifetime, simply by spending time together in prayer.
