Do you know where the most pretzels are made in the United States? Pennsylvania makes 80% of America's pretzels!! But who invented pretzels? There are lots of ideas and most people think they started out as a part of something religious. One of the ideas is that an Italian priest made them as a prize for children who learned their prayers. He made them to look like folded arms as in prayer.
That's kind of a good prize for the children, isn't it.
Why is it important to pray? Because Jesus told us to pray. He even gave us an example of how to pray. But prayer is just talking to God like we would talk to our friend. It would be pretty sad to go a long time without talking to our friend, wouldn't it? God wants to talk to him often. He's really interested in hearing you say that you love Him and that you need His help. Go eat a pretzel, and then spend some time talking to God today.
