Children need Faith

Filed under: deep reflections — Reb Moshe @ 8:42 am

I really believe that the most important thing to teach young children is pray and faith. They need to know that Hashem is there and that He not only desires their every prayer but He listens. I am constantly asking my kids to pray for various things that they want or that the family needs (of course we don’t share with them things that are above them). Sometimes I ask them to pray that I am able to fix something even though I know that it is easy to fix and will take me just 2minutes. Just so that they can see success in their prayers. I don’t know, maybe that is a bit dishonest but really though, it is true. As Rebbe Nachman taught, you should even pray for new shoes when yours get worn out.
