United Methodist Children on Prayer

Want a lesson in honesty and openness, and spirituality? Hang around a young child. Children can be so much more natural in their approach to God in prayer. In this video, United Methodist kids from Silver Spring United Methodist Church in Maryland share their deepest concerns and personal prayer requests. And they show us the way, as the Rev. Tanya Eustace of The United Methodist Church's Discipleship Ministries explains: "They approach the Holy, hands wide open, saying 'Here I am, God. How are we going to journey together?' And I think that’s such an important gift that children have, that we need to honor and respect and encourage."
