Prayer. Anywhere, anytime.

We know prayer is important, and the biggest reason is, because Jesus prayed! Even though the Bible is a big book, it’s kind of small considering it covers thousands of years of history – so, whatever is recorded is there for a purpose.  

This craft is to aide children to prayer when young minds can sometimes struggle to think of what to say. Don’t use this craft to “tell” a child what to say, simply ask, “Here is a house, can you think of something to ask or thank God for that has something to do with a house? Maybe you just want to tell Him something?”

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Color in and cut out pieces. 
  • Glue hand together using the tabs. 
  • Create your own prayer prompts – e.g. your family, friends, etc. 
  • Use this craft in creative ways. Some suggestions:
    • During family worship, or opening/closing Sabbath each member of the family can choose a prayer prompt for their prayer. Remember, that prayer is opening the heart to God, like we do with good friends, so this is a good time to model sharing what’s on your heart rather than just a “prayer request”, or “thanks”.
    • Encourage personal daily prayer every morning and night. Ask them what prayer prompt they used. 
    • Ask your child how could they use this craft to help their prayer life and see what they come up with!
  • ** HIGHLY RECOMMEND  THIS PAPER from Amazon** which I use for ALL my crafts because it’s a bit thicker than ordinary printer paper and prints brilliantly!!! (At the time of posting, price per sheet is less than 3 cents.)

** This is an affiliate link, which means if you make a purchase, Amazon gives me a tiny portion of the sale (this does not increase the price for you). Thank you in advance if you buy this paper!
