Bible Story Video: Prayer


Ask: Do you pray at home? If you do, what do you usually talk to God about? If not, would you like to talk with God more?


Let's take a moment to talk to God right now. What are some things you would like to pray for?

(Gather the prayer requests then pray for them)


Say: We are thankful that God hears us when we pray. Sometimes, we don't always get the answers we want, but it's good to ask God, but even more - to tell God how we're feeling and to thank Him for what we have. Let's hear a song that reminds us to thank God for all that is around us!


Song for Kids: Canticle of the Sun


Activity Sheets or Play


After the song, hand out the activity sheets. Younger children are welcome to play with the Duplos (encourage them to play out a story that fits with the lesson).


End with the Lord's Prayer when the Usher comes to let you know the prayers have started.
