Christian parents have a vital ministry in the church. The Christian nurture of children is primarily the responsibility of the parents, not the day school (even if it is a Christian school) nor the Sunday school.
There can be no nobler career than nurturing Christian children to be well-adjusted citizens of our society and to be faithful citizens of the kingdom of God.
the common practice of teaching children only ‘Dear Lord Jesus’ prayers needs some rethinking.
teaching children that one of the things Jesus has done for us is to make us friends with his Father in heaven so that we can talk to him and call him Father. Children will most readily learn the ‘art’ of praying by listening to their parents or other adults praying. It is therefore important for us to be consciously modelling a biblical mode of prayer for our children.
