I wasn’t sure what to pray with my kids in the evenings. I got tired of giving thanks for the wonderful day and then asking God to give us a good night sleep. “Now I lay me down to sleep…” didn't seem like a good option. I can remember as a little girl saying it before I’d go to sleep at night, though I could never remember if I was suppose to pray for my soul to keep or to take. Eventually, fearing that I was going to get it wrong, I stopped praying this prayer altogether.
I am over at Circles of Faith today talking about teaching my kids to use God's Word and pray the Bible. Join me?
