  • You can google it and find some really good ones. We also bought a book at Wal Mart with kids prayers.

  • Here are two examples from this great little book http://www.amazon.com/Babys-First-Prayers-Melody-Carlson/dp/0310702879/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1285217171&sr=1-1
    Thank you for my bed

    At night I am a sleepyhead,
    and I am thankful for my bed.
    I pray dear God, you'll send moonbeams,
    and give me good and pleasant dreams!
    Amen

    Good night God

    Good night, dear God, now I must sleep,
    I'll close my eyes and slumber deep.
    I know you watch me from above,
    and cover me with your sweet love.
    Amen

  • You can also teach them to pray from their heart as well. Kids are smarter than you think in regarding to prayer! :-)

  • ha im learning lately that my son is much smarter than i give him credit for. he has been proving he can do and understand soo much and i really look like a fool by enunciating, repeating and pointing lol.
    but he doesnt talk much and other than the now i lay me down to sleep one where its just part of our cuddle time before bed we dont ever pray. his dad isn't a christian so we've always just sat down and ate. im trying to fix my mistakes now... i want him to pray from his heart and will teach him in probably 6 mths or so when he is talking a lot more but for now i want to teach the concept

  • Grace before meals


    Thank you Lord for food when others are hungry
    For drink when others are thirsty and
    Friends when others are lonely
            Amen.
