Kids’ Devos

There once was a girl who said her bedtime prayers every night after her dad read from a kids’ devotions book to her. She would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past). One night at the end of her prayer, she said, “All girls.” This soon became part of her nightly routine, to include this closing. Her dad’s curiosity got the best of him, and one night he asked her, “Why do you always add the part about all girls?” Her response was, “Because everybody always finishes their prayers by saying ‘All Men’!”

It’s an important part of kids’ spiritual growth to have devotions. Often parents help to instill the importance of having daily devotions in their children by having prayer and reading Bible stories or a devotional book before tucking them in. As children get old enough to read, they can carry on this important experience on their own. Children who learn to experience God’s Presence early in life, through having a special time with Him, will likely carry this on throughout their lives.

Why not give your child a kid’s devotional book for a birthday, Valentines day, Easter, or Christmas? Or for no reason at all other than to say, “I love you.”
