Thanksgiving - An Opportunity to Teach about Prayer

Begin a time of teaching by asking the children to name something that God has done for them or given to them. Then tell them that they can mention those things to God in a certain kind of prayer that has the same name as a holiday we are about to celebrate. One of the children is sure to know the answer.

Then, using the chalkboard or a piece of posterboard with “Dear God,” written at the top and “In Jesus Name, Amen.” at the bottom, ask the children to take turns inserting what they had mentioned in between these phrases to form a “Thanksgiving-kind-of-prayer.”
