This Week in Motion Elementary :: Practice praying to God.

May series: Growing in faith is not something that happens by simply learning more information about the Bible. To experience faith, we need to practice our faith, and that takes commitment.

This month, we’ll help kids discover one of the best plans they can make is to commit to an ongoing relationship with Jesus. We hope they commit to practicing their faith by reading God’s Word, praying to God honestly and consistently, talking about God with others, and living for God in how they show love throughout the everyday moments of their life.

Practice praying to God.
The Lord’s Prayer • Matthew 6:9-13

In Matthew 6:9-13, we find Jesus talking about prayer during His Sermon on the Mount. Jesus shared a model for prayer that helps us understand more about how we can talk to God. We can pray with gratitude and honesty, pray for our needs, and ask for forgiveness. It’s comforting to know we can pray while remembering God knows us and wants to hear from us. 

Family Discussion Questions:

  1. Do you find it easy or hard to talk to God when things aren’t going the way you thought?
  2. Who in your life do you see praying or talking to God? How do they do it?
  3. What is a time during the day that you can set aside and practice praying to God?

Engage in everyday moments together this week: 

  • Morning time: As your kid starts their day, ask them how you can pray for them. 
  • Mealtime: At a meal this week, have everyone at the table share this: “What are some ways we can practice praying to God?” 
  • Drive time: While on the go, ask your kid, “What is something you have prayed about lately?” (And if there’s nothing, ask if there is something you can both be praying about together.) 
  • Bedtime: Pray for each other: “God, help us to remember to come to You about everything. You are our best friend, and we know You want us to tell You about everything that is on our hearts and minds.”
