We often pray at meals. In fact, sometimes I forget and then our 6-yr-old son says, "Wait a minute! We forgot something!" and promptly gives a thank-you.
But on everyday things...praying for others, or praying when they're sick, or even praying for something they want...they just don't seem to want to do it.
In fact, it's gotten to the point that when we press them (mostly the boys), they just give the same rote prayer.
A thought I had was to reward them with "points" when they pray
. And after a certain amount of points they'd get a prize (we already give points for extra chores and whatnot). But I'm not sure that praying should be rewarded like that. It should be something they WANT to do, right??
