Hear My Prayer Activity Pages
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best ~Philippians 1:9-10a
We are working on some activity pages. And I have to say, they are pretty cool. But that’s just my opinion. You will have to check it out for yourself, and let us know!
The idea behind the activity pages was to give parents another tool for talking about prayer and the Bible with their children. Activities we have so far:
- A page with verses you can look up and discuss with your child (always good to read the Bible!).
- A page that asks the kids what they think Porkie and Pete are praying about.
- And the last page asks the kids to make a prayer list for themselves. (Also a chance to color Porkie and Pete!)
My favorite part of the activities is asking kids to make their own prayer list, and then checking back with it after a few days/weeks/months (whatever works for you). My kids light up like Christmas trees when they find out that God has answered their prayers. It confirms to them that God does care about them, and that God really does hear our prayers!
My older son has been wanting to get his picture “on the internet.” So he did a few activities, and now he is “famous.” (His words) Kids are too funny! He is in love with the planet and animals. He has a lot of concern for “extinkt animals.” It is fun to see his cares and concerns as he prays. (And kid spelling is always entertaining!)
May God bless you with wisdom, and give you insight into the hearts of the children in your life. May you be filled with compassion as you teach and love these children God has blessed you with. In Jesus name, Amen!
