Never Too Young to Pray

“All thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children.” Isaiah 54:1313And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of thy children. (Isaiah 54:13)
“Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:1717Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. (Psalm 55:17)
His first prayer wasn’t much. After all, he was only one year old. He had a cup and a spoon that he was playing with. He stirred his imaginary drink, bowed his head, and said his first audible prayer. All he said was, “Amen.”
But many more prayers followed in the years to come. He asked the Lord to wash his sins away. (God surely delighted to answer that prayer!) He prayed for rain to stop so he could go to the zoo. (It did.) He prayed to catch a fish when all the other men had fancy fishing equipment and he had but a string and a hook. (He caught one.) He prayed for some friends to be saved. (They were.)
Your child may be young. Maybe he doesn’t understand much, but begin now to teach him to pray! What a comfort, what a help, and what a joy it will be for him all his life through.
