Sing your prayers

Andrew at age 3

Susanna Wesley wrote 12 tips in raising her children for God. Her #9 states, “Teach the Lord’s Prayer as soon as the child can speak.”

When Andrew was 2 and Olivia 1, we started teaching them to sing The Lord’s Prayer. Below is the audio from one of our evening prayers back then.  These are moments Milo and I will never forget.

The Lord’s Prayer by Andrew (age 3)

I love the idea of teaching our kids to connect with God with prayers that are set to music.  Whether at meals or before bed we are teaching them simple hymns with good truths that hopefully will never leave them.

Meal Time Prayers
Two of our favorite meal prayers are listed below. For some reason, music makes things feel more festive.  So one summer, while on vacation with family, I prepared mealtime prayers on small cardstock so that everyone could sing with us around the table.

O Lord, You’re good to me
And so I thank you so
For giving me the things I need:
The Sun and the rain and the Apple Trees
O Lord, You’re good to me.
Amen

Sung to the tune of Edelweiss:

Bless our friends, bless our food.
Come, O Lord, and sit with us.
May our talk glow with peace
Bring Your love to surround us.
Friendship and peace,
May it bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever.
Bless our friends, bless our food,
Bless our family (dear land) forever.
Amen.

Bed time prayers
At night we pray in a variety of ways.  The Gloria Patri and Doxology are simple hymns with beautiful scores and lyrics.  Both songs reinforce the Members of the Trinity each time we sing them. If your church background was more “high church,” you’ll recognize them.

The Gloria Patri
Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
Is now and ever shall be,
World without end. Amen. Amen.

Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise Him all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

What do you do as a family for prayers? Do you sing? Do you recite Scripture? Do you repeat after me? Perhaps you can begin singing…
