Adults can make God pretty complicated, can’t we? We forget that God is love! When we’re teaching our kids how to pray, we have to make it easy for them to understand, which means getting back to the basics. Here is a little kids’ prayer that reminds them that God listens, guides, and protects them and loves us all. Jesus wanted to let the children come to Him, so this sweet rhyme will make His heart leap for joy!
This is a great prayer to print and hang in their rooms so you both see it when they rise and shine (hopefully they wait for the sun to come up!). It’s a simple way to start the day with a quick chat with God, and our kids are never too young to develop that habit. Even though it’s a little kids’ prayer, you’ll probably need it, too! It will give you peace and sanity amid the mess and rushing.
