This page features three prayers for Sunday School lessons. The first is a short opening prayer for children to say before the class. The prayer has a rhyming nature - you may wish to consider teaching the first verse of this prayer to your children for them to memorize and say each week at the beginning of your sessions. The next prayer is for Sunday School teachers, and reflects on the different types of children that they may encounter in their groups.
Finally, there is a sample closing prayer suitable for children to say after their craft activities or games:-
Opening prayer for Sunday school
Everything we do, the play, the work and fun
You see it all and love everyone!
So we meet today in this Sunday School,
To learn about Jesus, 'cos you are cool!
We love the stories we hear about you,
Help us to listen and try to do.
Teach us to grow and learn and love,
Today we celebrate our Heavenly Father above.
(a short prayer suitable for primary school aged children)
