Key Question: How do you pray to God?
Kids are just starting to discover that they can pray more than before meals and at bedtime. We hope the kids in your environments learn that they can pray to God whenever they feel like praying with whatever words come to mind. God is always there to listen.
In Luke 11:1-4, we find Jesus’s disciples asking Him how to pray. Jesus responds with a prayer that serves as the perfect model for how we can talk to God. We can pray with gratitude and honesty, pray for our needs, and for forgiveness. It’s a comfort to know that we can pray knowing that God knows us and wants to hear from us.
Bottom Line: Practice praying to God. They can pray anytime, anywhere because God is always listening. We hope kids will understand more about the faith skill, PRAY, and find that talking to God is an important part of growing in their faith.
Craft: The spin wheel craft the children made and brought home can be used as a guide to help them learn to pray. We talked about remembering the acronym F.A.S.T. and using it when they pray. F - focus on God. A - ask for what you need. S - Say you're sorry. T - take the right path.
Memory Verse: “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.” Philippians 4:6 NLT
