Topic – Prayer

Opening Activity – Guess It

SAY: Today we’re learning that prayer is the way we build our friendship with God and get to know Him more. I want to know what your favorite things to do with your friends are, so we’re going to play a quick game of Guess It.

Each of you is going to act out, without using any words, your favorite activity to do with your friends. You’ll have one minute to act it out and the rest of us will guess. Whoever guesses the most will win.

Play Guess It

SAY: Good work! It was fun to learn about each of you more and some of the things you enjoy doing with your friends. Would you agree that your best friends are people you really want to spend time with?

We can get to the point where God is our best friend, which means we will want to spend more time with Him. One important way that we spend time with him is by talking to him in prayer.

READ Mark 1:35

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.

SAY: When Jesus was here on earth, he showed us just how important it is to spend time praying. Even Jesus needed to go and spend time in prayer to stay connected to God.

Discuss the following questions:

  • Why is prayer important?
  • What do you think is difficult about praying?
  • When could you make time in your day to pray?

    Discovered this website today and it has been tremendous. I have been able to download some free materials for the preteen ministry in my church that is on the verge of starting. Now got to save some money to get the other materials. God bless you.

    This site has been very helpful for me in developing Sunday School lessons for my 3rd -5th graders. Thank you!

  • My class waa very interested in this topic thanks for yourhelp, God bless you

  • I was ask to teach a pre teen Sunday School Class for a friend going on vacation. In search of something fitting, for this age group, it was like The Lord brought me straight to this lesson, and in looking it over, I am confident that he will help me present it this Sunday and praying that He will speak through me, that it may be a help to someone in this class. Looking forward to this opportunity.
