For Kids: The Psalms | Lectionary 16 (Pentecost 8) | Year A

Opening Song: The Apostles' Creed

Note: Today's lesson is based on Psalm 86 in the Lectionary readings.

Big Idea: The Psalms remind us that God listens to us no matter how we feel!

Story: "The Lord is My Shepherd" | Spark Story Bible, pg. 160

Ask: Have you ever prayed to God as David did?

Lesson Video | The Psalms

Ask: What emotion are you feeling right now? ... What is your favorite emotion? ... Do you always feel that way? ... What emotions do you think Jesus felt?

Say: God feels emotions too. He feels happy when people follow Him, He feels sad when we disobey Him, and He gets angry when we hurt one another. God understands our emotions.

This week, write a poem or a song about something you would like to say to God.

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.

(If you need more time)

  • Go around the room and ask the children to share something they are thankful for this week.

  • Ask them if there is anything or anyone they would like to pray for this week.
