“The Lord’s prayer” lessons and coloring page for kids is the perfect combination to teach your Sunday school class what the Lord wants us to focus on when we pray. When Jesus was instructing his disciples how to pray, He gave them this outline: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Matthew 6:9-13
The Lord’s prayer is a model of how Christians should pray, giving them a foundation for prayer throughout their lives. Our Lord’s prayer lessons and coloring page for kids will help instill this example of prayer into their hearts and minds.
The lessons will help them to understand the meaning of each part of the prayer and how to apply it to the different areas of their own lives that Jesus is addressing. “The Lord’s prayer” lessons and coloring page for kids will help your children to see the different areas of importance in their prayers: addressing that God is our heavenly Father, reverencing Him for who He is and praying for His will on earth.
Additionally, the areas we need to continually pray about: provision for our needs, forgiveness for our sins, and keeping us from sinning. As children memorize and remember each area of prayer, they will learn to personalize this prayer for their own lives, helping them to realize that this prayer isn’t just an old example, but one that is relevant to their lives today.
