Background Information

The two children in the videos had never created their own prayers. They were used to praying memorized prayers for their whole life.


  • Both videos were unrehearsed.
  • The children did not know the “parent” who was leading the prayer time.
  • The “parent” did not know what was happening in each child’s life like their own parent would.
  • A camera was placed in front of each child. An uncomfortable situation for anyone.

Despite these four difficulties, the children felt that they had really talked with God. They appeared to have enjoyed the praying and found it meaningful. Think how much more powerful this method of teaching prayer would be, if this was you with your own child.
