Pre-K Prayer Song Activity

   
   




God loves us and wants us to talk to him. When we talk to him it is called prayer. Jesus has taught us how to talk to him. Explain the five parts of prayer referenced in the Plaster Prayer Hand craft activity. Click here. (You may also want to use the craft activity.)

To begin, have children stand in a circle and hold hands. Focus on one aspect of the Lord's Prayer for each round of the song. For example, in the first round of the song say prayers that praise and adore God. You may want to prompt the children with specific, short phrases such as, "Dear God you are great!"; "Dear God you are loving!"; "Dear God you are forgiving!"

The song is sung to the tune of "Frere Jacques" (a.k.a. "Are You Sleeping?") As you sing the first round of the song children move clockwise.

"Let's talk to Jesus."
"Let's talk to Jesus."

"What will we say?"
"What will we say?"

"Let's talk to Jesus."
"Let's talk to Jesus."

"Now we pray."
"Now we pray."

At this point children fall down on their knees and take turns saying their sentence prayer. When everyone has said their prayer. Children stand up and sing the prayer song again for the second part of the Lord's Prayer. However, you may want to use only one part of the prayer per class time.
