If you know me, you know that I have no greater desire than to help my daughter establish an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. That being said, I find myself concerned about her lack of desire when it comes to prayer. I know. I can hear it now. "Give her a break Chad. She's only four years old." I realize this, but the thing is, she has such a "talkative" personality and will talk to anyone but that doesn't seem to carry over to her prayer life.
It could be that I've chosen our extended prayer times to be in the evening, when she is tired from the days events and ready to fall asleep.
I'm not overly concerned. I just try to be the best example I can be. Helping her to see that prayer is more than just ritualistic chatter. It's a conversation with our Creator.
My hope is that she will grow into this whole prayer thing as she matures. Lord knows I'm nowhere close to being a prayer warrior. Who knows. Maybe one day we'll both get it.
