57 Easy To Learn Prayers for Toddlers

Pinterest Hidden Image

My understanding of God’s love for me mirrors the relationship between a parent and a child. We are all his children. He created us, and gave us a purpose. I can only imagine the things I would do to keep my children safe.

Then to sit and think about how God sent Jesus to save us; it reminds me that it is an unbreakable love. John 3:16 reads “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

I could not imagine sending my child into the world, for the purpose of suffering. How God must love us to send Jesus to die for us. How Jesus must love us to come and take away all of our sins. All we have to do is love and follow him in return, make our future God’s will. 

Teaching our children how to talk to God creates a great foundation for the rest of their faith. We can model this for them by speaking prayers out loud and then having our child repeat them, or even just speaking prayers over them.

My children know they can talk with God whenever they want to. They know that he is always listening, and always with them. Our youngest does not quite speak yet, but we pray simple prayers over him.

I hope these prayers help you and your toddler pray together. Remember to keep them short and simple, let your child add in at any time. Remind your toddler that what they have to say is important. Tell your child God wants to hear from them.

Concluding Thoughts:

This stage of life is full of emotions and new stages. I hope you see the fun in all of the stressful times. Remember to tell yourself you are doing a good job, at least once a day! It will go by much faster than you expect and before you know it your little one will be graduating preschool, getting their license for the first time, and then graduating college!

But one step at a time and we can’t forget how blessed we are to be able to raise our children to talk to the Lord. The best thing we can do is to model this behavior for them.

Luke 18:16 reads “But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God”.

I hope these little prayers help your children come to Jesus. I hope you find them praying over little things all day long. Encourage them to speak their minds to the Lord, but then to also listen. Praise them as they learn to pray.
