Here are some effective ways to help nurture the natural desire to pray in preschoolers.
- Never force a child to pray. They will become comfortable at their own pace and by watching classmates pray.
- Explain to your class why prayer is so important. Don't just assume that they are learning about prayer at home.
- Post a prayer calendar in your classroom and begin class each week with a prayer from the calendar.
- Take a "Prayer Walk" around your church during class and stop along the way to pray for certain people, such as pastors, administrative folks, etc. Pray for church events as well.
