3 Ways Into Sunday’s Stories for Children: The Lord’s Prayer

The Seventh Sunday After Pentecost

Jesus’s disciples already knew how to pray. But after spending time with Jesus, they were thinking about God and God’s kin-dom differently than before. So Jesus taught them the words that we now call The Lord’s Prayer. Prayer or meditation is a way to be present to God. The words, or their meaning, are no more or less important than our sincere presence to God. However, it is an awesome prayer to know by heart so you can easily shift into a posture of prayer.

Print, fold, read, and color the story booklet showing when Jesus teaches a prayer.

Sing The Lord’s Prayer. Learn The Lord’s Prayer in ASL. Write it out. Here is one version you can copy:

Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your Name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
        on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
    as we forgive those
        who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
    and deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
    and the glory are yours,
    now and forever. Amen.
