Hi Parents and carers,

Today we continue with the six part series called “The Lord’s Prayer.” Today’s lesson is called “Our Father.” Even though God is almighty and

all-powerful, He is also approachable. Jesus addressed God as “Our Father” to show us we do not have to be afraid to speak to Him. God is all-powerful, but is also all loving.  He loves when we pray!

Bottom Line: God wants us to pray to Him.

Objective: Kids will learn that prayer allows us to talk to a holy and loving God.

Memory Verse: “This, then, is how you should pray: Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread, and forgive us or debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.” Matthew 6:9-13 (NIV)

WORSHIP SONGS:

Matthew 6:9 & Isaiah 6:1-8, Isaiah’s Commission

VIDEO FOR TODAY'S LESSON:

Summary: God is great and holy – Isaiah got to see that firsthand with God on a glorious throne surrounded by angels. God is so holy and awesome and the fact that He would even allow us to pray to Him is amazing. But that same God who is the most awesome and powerful being in the universe, not only allows us to talk to Him, but also to call Him “Father”, because He loves us.

 

Activity: Have the kids address an envelope to God with the words, “Our Father” or “Heavenly Father” on the front. You can have the kids make a list of prayer requests to put inside the envelope if you like and have the time.

Weekly Tasks:

Make this week’s lesson real:

What names do you have in your family for grandparents and great grandparents? Do any aunts and uncles have unusual names? Talk to your kids about where those names came from, and ask your kids how it feels to call our Creator God by the name “Father.”

AT DINNER:

Here are some great discussion starters:

- How did Jesus address God when He prayed?

- What did Isaiah’s vision reveal to us about who God is?

- How do we know that the same, powerful God wants us to pray to Him?

AT BEDTIME:

Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse. 

Prayer: 

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for listening any time we pray. In Jesus’ name,

Amen! 

Thank you for your support and may God bless you all!
