Work it Out, Week 2 (Elementary)


Week 2 of our WORK IT OUT series, we learned about another way to grow our faith and connect with God: prayer!  How do you pray to God? Most elementary kids are starting to discover that they can pray more than before meals and at bedtime. We hope your child has discovered that they can pray to God whenever they feel like praying and with whatever words come to mind. God is always there to listen.

In Luke 11:1-4, we saw Jesus’s disciples asking Him how to pray. Jesus responded with a prayer that serves as the perfect model for how we can talk to God. We can pray with gratitude and honesty, pray for our needs, and for forgiveness. It’s a comfort to know that we can pray knowing that God knows us and wants to hear from us.

Bottom Line: Practice praying to God. Encourage your child to pray anytime, anywhere because God is always listening. We hope kids will understand more about the faith skill, PRAY, and find that talking to God is an important part of growing in their faith!  

Don't forget you can track their commitment with their Commitment Card all month long!!!  Kids can color in a box each time they pray, read their Bible, or practice their memory verse!  Small things make a big difference in kids' faith, and in our own faith!  Take time this week to model prayer, Bible reading, or scripture memorization for your kiddos!  You'll be surprised how much your own faith grows with a small commitment!
