Reply to "Prayer: Lesson Ideas and Resources"

A graphic from my files. Don't know where I got, but it would make a great teaching activity and memory device.

I wonder what something like these ideas would look like written on a pair of "Prayer Gloves" ??  Or perhaps a pair of Lord's Prayer gloves?

See my Lord's Prayer idea below.


To adapt it for teaching about the Lord's Prayer, you could have the kids decide which line from the Lord's Prayer most closely matches each finger, then write that line on their printed graphic.

You could also write the Lord's prayer in "ten lines" -one for each finger/thumb (or glove). Yes, I wouldn't mind writing on their hands or letting them do it. Many kids like that. But instead of writing the full line, use abbreviations, single word prompts, (or symbols?) as a memory device and space-saving device. Discussing certain appropriate abbreviations is also a teaching moment.

  1. Our Father who art in heaven
  2. Hallowed be thy name
  3. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,
  4. on earth as it is in heaven.
  5. Give us this day our daily bread
  6. And forgive us our debts
  7. As we forgive our debtors
  8. And lead us not into temptation
  9. But deliver us from evil
  10. For thine is the Kingdom, the Power, and the Glory Forever. Amen  

For line 10, write "KPG Amen."  (To this day that's what pops into my mind --the way I was taught to remember the correct order of the last line. Kingdom, Power, Glory = "KPG."
