My daughter has been expressing curiosity in prayer for a while now.  Just the other night, she asked to pray before meal time.  
I think that it's quite nice that she has expressed interest and desire in it.  She doesn't pray because it's repetition or habit, but out of want and interest.  Not there is anything wrong with that, just not what I prefer for my daughter.  Or maybe she just wants it to stay up a minute or two later.  I'm still okay with that.
I think that it's also interesting that there is little research to find on religion and children that isn't swayed by opinion.  I guess we'll just role with it.  
We're trying hard to keep consistent with it and build the habit.  We'll get there in time.
