    We have 5 kids and family prayer is a struggle sometimes. This is because it has value.
    I find that paying attention to my kids’ moods and needs helps tremendously during prayer time. We must seriously consider their agenda… not ours.
    You have to be persistent and patient. You never discover a jewel without effort.

    You let your 4 year old lead family devotions?!!? Why on earth would you do that?

  3. My terrific husband is so patient with our kids during our nightly family prayer time. There have been times, I’ve thought, “Why do we even do this! It’s so frustrating.” But, he has diligently pursued this time together without ever loosing it. I wish I could say the same for myself. But, I do see such a blessing in this time and a frequently remind our boys that it is an amazing gift to have a father who leads us spiritually and they will never regret listening to their father’s teaching.

    When you have young children, a good children’s story Bible will help. Often they will include discussion questions too. And make sure you read with expression! As our children learned to read, we started reading around the table, one or two or more verses each depending on ability, that also helps them focus. Keep it up 🙂
