Your Elementary students are learning about “Commitment” this month. Last Sunday, we talked about making prayer a commitment/resolution for this year. We passed out calendars to each child (duplicates are on the website) and asked them to pray for one thing each day. We will have a prayer circle at the end of each month in large group to remember the things we are praying for.
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.
The goal for this month for our Preschoolers is to learn that Jesus is the one to watch, because JESUS CAN DO ANYTHING!
How about the time Jesus walked on water. That was definitely a WATCH THIS moment! Jesus can do what is impossible. I can’t walk on water. Can you? Can your preschoolers? No. We can’t. It’s impossible for us. But, nothing is impossible for Jesus. Jesus can do anything.
