ACTIVITY | 28 FEB 2021

Hi Parents and carers,

Today we continue with the six part series called “The Lord’s Prayer.” Today we are up to lesson 3 and it is called “Your Kingdom Come.” Just as a parent knows what’s best for a child, God knows what’s best for all of us. This week, pray with your kids to have willing hearts to listen to and obey God. Ask God that His will might be done in your family, as it is in Heaven.

Bottom Line: Prayer helps us to learn God’s plan for our lives.

Objective: Kids will learn that prayer helps us put God’s way before our own.

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)


Scripture to read: 

Matthew 6:10 & Matthew 26:36-46, In the Garden of Gethsemane


Prep – 4 (4-9yrs old) - Super Kids and Thunder Team


What did Jesus mean when He prayed for God’s will to be done?

What was Jesus praying about in the Garden of Gethsemane?

Did Jesus want to suffer and die?

Why did Jesus do it anyway?

Can prayer help us to learn God’s plans for us?


5 – 6 (10-12 yrs old) – Lightning Lions


What did Jesus mean when He prayed for God’s will to be done?

Why did Jesus pray that God would not make him suffer on the cross?

Why did Jesus do it anyway?

How can prayer help us to learn God’s plans for us?

Why is it important we choose God’s plans over our own?


Summary: In the last hours before His death, we see Jesus’ sadness as He prays in the garden. Despite His own desires, Jesus ultimately prays for the Father’s will to be done. In our own prayers, we should seek to know and follow God’s way with our life.


Activity: Have the kids create “ONE WAY” signs, like the street signs, but with the words “GOD’S WAY” written on them. They can use a pre-made colouring sheet, or cut out a white arrow to paste on black construction paper and use a black marker to write on the arrow.

Weekly Tasks:

Make this week’s lesson real:

How many appointments, practices, and meetings do you have to do this week that you’d rather not do? Tell your kids why you plan to do these things instead of skipping them. What would be the consequences for a missed appointment, a skipped sports practice, or a missed meeting?


Here are some great discussion starters:

- Why did Jesus pray for God’s will to be done?

- How did Jesus pray for God’s will to be done in the Garden of Gethsemane?

- Why is it important to seek God’s will and not our own?


Quiz your child on this week’s memory verse. 


Heavenly Father,

May your kingdom come and your will be done, just as Jesus prayed.

In Jesus’ name, Amen!

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