    We sit up an empty chair in the room and pray for future visitors who might fill that chair.

    We have prayer time after flannel board bible story time and before coloring page small group time. I notice that the children who are quiet and reluctant to talk or join in on things will volunteer to pray over time. It usually takes several classes but then the shy one will raise his/her hand. One boy in particular really touched my heart. He wouldn’t talk in class. Then, all of a sudden after several Sundays, he started to pray. He prayed about toys at first and I couldn’t make out what he was saying. He was not a trusting child but he trusted God with his heart’s desire (toy) in prayer. Thank you for asking the question. It is reminding me to pray for my students to trust God with their hearts in prayer.
