"Mama, can I talk to God? Will He hear my prayers."
Ask children if they have ever made a wish while blowing out their candles on their birthday cake. When we blow out those candles, we whole-heartedly hope our silent wish will come true. Sometimes our wishes are fulfilled and sometimes not. Explain that going to God in prayer is similar to making a silent birthday wish. Teach children that praying to God is having a conversation with God. God loves us and cares for us so much that when we go to Him with our heartfelt prayer, He will consider all of our requests based on our needs and our faith or belief.
Matthew 21:22 states, “You will receive whatever you ask for in prayer, if you believe.”
