Kindergarteners through fifth graders heard about John this week. We talked about how John loved to pray. Try praying together as a family. Tell God one thing you love about him, ask him for something you need, and ask him if he has anything he wants to say to you.
Here’s Shrimpola to help us find out more about how to pray. What other questions do you have about prayer? Talk about them as a family.
Prayer is relationship with God, which means we shouldn’t do all the talking. He also wants us to listen, like this song says.
Hearing God’s voice takes time. This video helps explain it–and provides some quiet time for listening.
Our verse for the second half of May, Ephesians 4:29, says, “Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” We can’t do this all the time on our own. Pray and ask God for help! He loves helping us act more like Jesus.
