Teaching Kids to Pray Elementary Focus Lydia Stoesz
We want to teach the children in our ministries and in our lives to learn to pray…really pray.

In this session we will dive into how to teach kids to fully interact with their Heavenly Father – both talking and listening to him – how to develop that in a ministry setting, how to encourage families to become families of prayer, and how to foster a dynamic life of prayer for ourselves so that we can lead through example and experience.
