Story

Jesus Teaches How to Pray - Matthew 6:9-13

Memory Verse

"Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."

  • Have children sit down on the floor while telling them that God loves Jesus, and that He was so happy when Jesus was baptized.
  • Prepare the children to listen to the story by singing Open Shut Them:
Open shut them, open shut them
Give a little clap, clap, clap
Open shut them, open shut them
Lay them in your lap, lap, lap

Set up the Lesson:

Last week we started learning the Lord's Prayer. We call this the Lord's Prayer because this is the prayer that Jesus, our Lord, taught. Do you remember the first part?

"Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name."

Today we will learn the 2nd part of the Lord's Prayer:

"Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."

This means we are praying that people would live in peace and love with each other the way it is in heaven. It reminds us that we should be living the way God wants us to live every day. God lives in heaven and if we think about where God lives, we know it is awesome. Next week we will talk about the next section of the prayer.


  • Read Matthew 6:9-13
  • Ask discussion questions:
    • Why do we call this the Lord's Prayer? (Because this is the prayer that Jesus, our Lord, taught.)
    • Who did Jesus teach to pray? (His friends, the disciples.)
    • Why do we call God "Our Father?" (Because He is our heavenly Father, and we are His special children.)
    • What does God want for us on earth? To live in peace and love each other the way it is in heaven.
