How do we pray? Why is it important to have humility? Sometimes we get the idea that faith is a performance of some sort, or that prayer is meant for other people to hear and applaud. It’s important to remind children that God wants to hear our genuine prayers and welcomes us to come to Him with our requests. Our lives as Christians are not about our own work but depend on what God does in and through us.

We wouldn’t want to identify with the Pharisee in this parable, but unfortunately, we sometimes act like him. We can even give kids the impression that we are better than others if we have strong faith, and that we somehow earn God’s love with our actions and prayers. It’s important to emphasize that we are all sinners, saved by grace alone. God loves us and wants to hear from us. Our prayers are a communication with Him, not some sort of speech for the masses. Our faith is given by the Holy Spirit and blesses us only because it makes us reliant on Him.
