How can someone get a 10 year old child to get to pray or like it when they are asked to pray? I realize sometimes when I tell him to pray he prays fast or tells me I already prayed. Sometimes I feel like he is lying when he says he prayed. And if I would tell him, he would say that I dont believe him. I feel stuck in this situation. Because I realize many kids especially at this age lie and he tells me he did but I get a feeling he is lying. How do I know when the child isn't lying and how would I get them to like praying? Many people these days treat prayer like a drag. I don't know the right approach.

I recommend seeing these two lectures and using points from them with a 10 year old:
