A Prayer From Kids

I taught a homeschool class to boys on being men at the Hicksville homeschool co-op.  If you know me, I stayed away from manly man things, but we focused on connecting with God to be spiritual leaders.

One of the activities we did was construct a group prayer that they read at the closing large group session.  We based it on the elements of the Lord's Prayer. 

I transcribed the prayer for the group of boys because they were too small to write it themselves.  This is the prayer from the first and second graders.


God, you are powerful and healing.
Thank you for dying on the cross for our sins.
Than you for answering prayers.

We are thankful for food, animals, water, candy, good weather, light, color, fishing, cups to drink from, fresh air, cats and dogs, shoes and socks, dirt, worms, flowers, church, and orange juice.

Thank you for our homes and parents.

Help us grow, not have nightmares, and have good friends.

Thank you for the whole world.
