How To Or How To Become

Nov 24th, 2009 by Rabbi Simcha Weinberg in Prayer
I spoke with a few people this week whose children are having difficulty praying in school. The kids do not enjoy prayer and express their resentment by coming late and talking while others pray. (Sounds like some adults I know!)

The parents, with whom I spoke, all mentioned the teachers insisting that they teach the children how to pray, and they cannot understand why the children do not understand what they must do.

My response is a simple question: Are you teaching them how to pray, what they must do, or are you teaching them how to become prayors; people who develop their relationship with God through prayer?
