When should I teach my child to Pray / How soon should I teach my children to Pray

At what age should I teach my children to Pray? What is the right age to introduce Prayer into my child's life? What is the right age to start Praying?
Keeping in mind the importance of Prayer, it is important to give your children the gift of this knowledge as soon as possible.

Simple fact: If they can speak, they can Pray!

As a basis, inform them about Jesus and God, take them to Sunday school if you can and instill wisdom of the Lord in them from as early an age as you can.
Start off with simple and easy Prayers of course. Introduce your children to Prayers for children. They can start off by Praying for their close family, their pets and for all that they are thankful and grateful for.
Once you have started your children off with regards to Prayers, as they grow older, they will change, structure and include more detail in their Prayers by them selves. You don’t need to worry about that. As a parent (or older sibling) your main concern should be getting them started and firmly grounded in the Lord.
It would be a good idea to have a fixed routine for your little one in order for him/her to remember that just as important (actually more important) than brushing their teeth before bed or making sure that the lights are turned out or even that bedtime story is speaking to Jesus / God.
You’ll obviously need to Pray with them for a while depending on how old they are. Teach them that they should go on their knees, close their eyes and speak to God. Let them know that even though they can’t hear God or Jesus speak back He can understand and hear them 100% clearly.
