Prayer is at the heart of our relationship with God, and can take many forms: personal and private, corporate, intercession, thanksgiving … and the list goes on! In Parenting for Faith we encourage parents and carers to introduce prayer to their children as ‘chat and catch’  (one of our five key tools) which is best described as an informal, one to one conversation with God, and if you’d like to know more about that, we have a much fuller introduction here. In this section you’ll find a whole range of articles on prayer, to help you explore how you and your family connect best with God as you pray.
