This week we are thinking all about Prayer! It is now the time of Lent, which is when Jesus spent 40 days in the desert on his own. In that time He probably did lots of praying and talking to God, and we remember this in our Prayer today.
This first song is called Pray and is a great new addition to our catalogue of songs!
This song is based on the Our Father prayer. Have a listen to it and then say the Our Father prayer that is underneath!
Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, Amen.
This video is all about prayer and how it can help us to become closer to God. Watch the video and then try out the activities below!
Why not try creating a poster all about prayer to put in your window? It could be the words of a prayer, telling someone different ways that they can pray, or even who you are praying for.
There are lots of noises in our world tomorrow. Stop for a minute, what can you hear? Sometimes it is in the quiet and the silence that we can find God in our prayers. Take a moment now, set a timer if you need to, and try and spend some time in quiet prayer, having a conversation with God.
Prayer is a conversation with God. It is when we tell Him all about our thoughts and feelings and he listens to us. Sometimes we begin the prayer and sometimes God may speak to us without us even realising it. In this story from the book of Samuel, God is calling Samuel and he doesn’t realise. It makes us think, are we listening out for God’s call or can we sometimes get distracted?
King David is an important person in the Bible. In fact Jesus was a direct descendant of King David, and so was related to him. King David was a very holy man and spent a lot of time in prayer, often writing songs and psalms to praise God.
