This Week: Prayer

This week we are going to be learning about prayer. Prayer is talking to God, and the Bible is full of true stories about people who prayed to God in different ways. Let’s watch the video and find out more:

Time to Think and Pray

Questions 

 

  • Why does God want us to talk to him?

  • What did the people in today’s Bible video pray about?

  • Why do you think we should praise God?

  • What kind of things do we need to say ‘Sorry’ to God for?

  • Do you ever ask God for help like Hannah did?

  • Why should we listen and obey God even when we don’t feel like it?

  • Do you ever pray to God?

 

When he was having a really tough time, Jehoshaphat praised God because he knew God was powerful and would rescue him; and God did! David said ‘Sorry’ to God for the wrong things he had done and God forgave him. Hannah asked God for a baby as this was what she wanted more than anything, and God answered her prayer! When he was older her little boy, Samuel heard God speaking to him and listened. He loved and obeyed God his whole life. These are all great ways for us to pray too!

God wants you to talk to him because he loves you so much. Even though he created the whole world he wants to have a relationship with you! This means he wants you to be his friend. When you talk to God and listen to what he says you get to know him better and grow closer to him. You don’t need to use special words when you pray, and you don’t need to kneel down. You can talk to God anywhere, at any time, no matter what you are doing. God loves it when you talk to him. What could you pray about today?

 

Prayer:

Dear Lord, Thank you that you love me so much and want me to be your friend. Please help me to remember to pray to you every day so that I can get to know you better. Thank you that you always hear me when I talk to you. Amen
