Here’s what happened when Dylan and his mum, Naomi, read ‘How to pray’ together.
Dylan is 7 and loves cars, football and LEGO®.
Dylan asked: Why should we do prayer?’
Dylan wondered: So God will reward us and we can be Christians?
Naomi explained: Well, God will reward us in heaven for the way we live our lives. But we have to remember that we could never live a good enough life to really deserve to be with God in heaven. He’s actually saved us from that when Jesus died for us on the cross, from having to be punished for the things we do wrong. But when we pray, that’s our way of talking to God and getting to know God better and asking him to help us with the things and people in our lives here on earth. And it helps us to get to know God better and to be happier with God and it makes our lives better here.
