What is the one thing YOU desire for every child in your Life?
A strong faith? A relationship with Jesus? A love for the Eucharist?
Yes, yes and YES!
We all want our kids to love Jesus and to make Him the center of their lives, but how does this happen? The Sacraments of the Church are a great place to start. Receiving First Holy Communion and attending Mass regularly will help to form the foundation of their faith. But there is more!
Forming a personal RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ and getting to know Him as a friend and confidant is what makes the faith come alive. Loving Jesus changes everything! How do we fall in love with Jesus? We talk to Jesus as we do any other friend and we spend time with Him in prayer.
Unfortunately, in the chaos of family life, making time for prayer and teaching children how to pray can be a daunting task. The Ministry of Give Him 5 makes it easy. The Give Him 5 prayer bag has everything you need to get you started!
The five minute sand timer makes it exciting to begin and doesn’t ding or beep to disturb the prayer time. Once prayer has started it keeps right on going. Prayer cards are included with ideas for your prayer time and a Give Him 5 pocket cross is a special treasure. An introduction explaining why we want to spend time with Jesus is uniquely rolled to look like an ancient scroll.
Give Him 5 also has a collection of free prayer time audios to get you and your kids started. These audios lead you through your five minutes of prayer and have a built in time for silence.
Get your kids excited about Jesus! First Communion is the ideal time to introduce your child to Give Him 5 and to encourage a lifelong friendship with Jesus Christ.
