Christmas means twinkling lights and sparkling snowflakes. It also means time with family and remembering God’s gift of love. Christmas can also represent a time of prayer for children.
One sweet book that has taught my children about prayer is A Very Merry Christmas Prayer by Bonnie Jensen. And while it’s wonderful for my children to read about prayer, it’s even more important that they learn how to pray.
I decided this year I’d like my kids to write our own Christmas prayers. I came up with questions for each of them to fill in. Then the answers can be put together to create a unique Christmas prayer. Consider writing one with each child or together as a family.
