August Week 1: The scriptures teach me how to pray.
The song for this month is “A Child’s Prayer”. Most of your primary children should be familiar with this song…you may just need to review it. The Friend magazine provides an activity that lends itself well to this week’s theme. See here.
Assign a song for practice to each person who prayed (be sure to have “A Child’s Prayer” as one of the songs). The Friend only provides 4 people so I will be adding a few additional ones. Place cards with these people & the scripture reference in a container to draw from. Place large visuals of the “why he/she prayed” and “what happened” cards on the chalkboard. I will be printing mine out on 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper. Be sure to mix them up! Choose a child to pick a card & read it out loud…the person and the scripture reference. Have the rest of the children match the “who” and “what” that go with the person. Sing a song for practice.
*I am going to add the following scriptural figures:
Alma – Prayed for help in teaching the Zoramites. Asked Heavenly Father to comfort him and his companions and give them strength in their missionary work. See chapter 31.
Ammon – See Alma 27:4-5, 10-12
King Mosiah – See Mosiah 28:6-7
The Primary Children – See Moroni 10:3-5
