RADIO PROGRAM NO. 290 - Helping Children Pray, Part I
Questioner: Prayer is an important part of the family's religious experience, and I suspect that it goes deeper than the familiar slogan, "The family that prays together stays together." What do we mean by prayer? And more particularly, what can prayer mean to a child?Speaker: To help a child learn to pray, it's certainly essential to make quite clear to him what real prayer actually includes. Of course, prayer is individual, but I'd say it includes turning silently or audibly, but more importantly, wholeheartedly, to God, to the one divine Parent, tenderly spoken of by Christ Jesus as our Father.
It's a spiritual communion with the source of all good, the ever-present infinite Spirit, who is God. It's not so much asking for love and goodness as striving to be loving and good.
