Object Lesson about Prayer for Preschool children

You will need bubble blowing soap, a super bubble blower and a small one.

Talk to the children that no prayer is too small or too large for God to care about, hear, and answer.

Take the giant bubble blower and begin making big bubbles. As the children pop the bubbles, discuss what some big prayers might be: Praying for a sick friend or family member, praying for money to buy food, etc. Let the children think of prayers they think are big while they pop the bubble. Make sure all the children have a chance to pop a bubble. (It is important to keep control and let them know there can be no shoving or running.)

Then take out the little bubble blower and blow bubbles for the children to pop. Discuss small prayers and ask them which prayers they might be little prayers. Ex. Finding a shoe, help to clean their room, their loose tooth will fall out and not have to be pulled, etc.

Next ask children if the big bubbles popped any different than the little one. Explain to them that no prayer is too big or too small for God. He answers all prayers and wants to hear about all our problems.

If money permits give each child a bottle of bubble soap to take home. 6 usually cost around $1.29 Sent in by Narita Roady

Praying Hands Picture

Praying hand Craft Use this craft when you are studying about prayer. The Lord's Prayer or the Prayer of Jabez or any other prayer can be written on the hands with gel pens.

What you will need: Construction paper (yellow, dark blue, and scraps), black gel pen paper, scissors, glue, gel pens.

What to do:

Before class print out the pattern (PDF Pattern) of the praying hands and the stained glass window.

Using the patterns cut the window shapes from the yellow construction paper and the praying hands shape from black gel pen paper. Note: Black construction paper may not work with gel pens. They need a very smooth paper to work well.) Buy gel pen paper wherever you buy gel pens.)

Cut up scrap pieces of construction paper or computer paper (neon color work best) into small one inch shapes.

In class have the children glue the window shape to a piece of dark blue construction paper and then glue the small pieces of paper to the window shape.

Have them write a prayer (The Lord's Prayer or the Prayer of Jabez) on the praying hands shape using gel pens and then glue it in the center of the stained glass window.

Learn the Lord's Prayer in Sign Language

Your children will love signing the Lord's Prayer as they recite it. They will also love signing it to the popular song, "As It Is In Heaven" by Michael W. Smith. Consider having your children perform it in front of the congregation. This would also be a great way to show your congregation what your children are learning. Go to the Lesson Tutor web site for printouts and directions.


Prayer Box

(This is a good Sunday School or Junior Church thing to be done weekly.) Get a shoe box or any box and wrap it with tissue paper. I used white and then decorated it. Cut a slit in the top and write "Prayer Box" on it. Make out prayer request cards and hand them out to the children or have them make their own. Have the children that have a request fill it out, read it out loud to the class, and then slip it in the box.
The next Sunday read the requests and see how many have been answered. If they have been answered, you can either give it to the child to keep, or do the "extra activity". If they haven't been answered, keep it in the box till it has been answered.

Make an "Answered Prayer Request" poster. Write the title at the top and then make square boxes on the rest of the poster board so that the cards fit into them. Whenever a request is answered have the children tape their card to the board. Keep doing this every Sunday.

I do this with my junior church every week and the pastor and the church just love it. They love reading them to see what the kids pray about. It's a big hit whenever we have potlucks. People love to see what new prayers are up. (Sent in by Heather)


Coloring Sheets for the Lord's Prayer

Teach Us To Pray Web site has lots of printable coloring pages on the Lord's Prayer and other activities to teach children the Lord's Prayer.


Prayer Tower

I teach Pre-K and kindergarten and one thing I have found hard is to keep their little minds on the prayer being said. A great thing to do is to use blocks to build a prayer tower. Each child takes a block and stacks it on the tower. As they stack it they say what they would like to pray about. This is fun for them, but most importantly, it helps them think of whom they would like to pray for. This idea was sent in by Kay Hershberger

Bible Lessons and Crafts:

The Lords Prayer - How Jesus Taught His Disciples to Pray
By Vicki Wiley

This lesson is taught using plastic cross containers and color Sandy Candy.

Our Father who is in Heaven - The first thing Jesus said was, "Our Father in heaven", Some Bible Translations say "Our Father, who ART in heaven." That means our Father who is in heaven.
Let's put some gold into our tube to remind us of heaven. The Bible tells us that the streets of heaven are made of gold, so the gold will remind us of heaven and how we should start our prayer.

"May your kingdom come" - (Pass around the purple "Sandy Candy")
Jesus is the King and we use purple to stand for royalty. The kingdom that Jesus is talking about is now in heaven, but at the end of the world it will also be on earth. When you see the purple, you can remember the kingdom of God. For the complete lesson click on the link above.

2. The Lord's Prayer - Bible Lesson on The Resource Room for children grades 2 - 5 - The aim of this lesson is to help students understand prayer as a means of talking to God, to look at and understand the model prayer Jesus gave us. Following are some ideas from the lesson:

1. Display a variety of baking ingredients and a recipe for bread. Include ingredients that would not go into a bread recipe. Discuss what would happen if we didn't use a recipe as beginning bakers. Then have the students decide which of the ingredients belong in the recipe. Explain that Jesus gave us an example of a prayer to use as our guide when we pray. If time permits, students could make the bread. Otherwise, the leader could make the bread at home and bring it back when the "daily bread" portion of the prayer is discussed.

Bread Basket Craft2."Thy Kingdom come" - Make a Christian Flag - Go to web site for a picture and the history of the flag.

3. "Give us this day our daily bread" - Decorate a napkin and place in a bread basket - Go to Crafts Page 12 for directions. Encourage your students to make bread at home to place in their baskets and give them to a neighbor.

This lesson is available to Members of The Resource Room.
