Bible lessons and ideas about the Lord's Prayer -with Computer, software, interactive stories, games, etc.


The following lesson is part of a much larger set of lessons I wrote about the Kingdom of God  over in the Parables Forum

The Lord's Prayer is a Prayer for the Kingdom

Who our King is. What we are to ask for and do in the Kingdom, and What God will do for us in his Kingdom.  


The Lord's Prayer

Computer Workshop 

Summary of Lesson Activity:

The Lord's Prayer is one of the four lesson-games in Galilee Flyer CD. The pop-up notes and questions the kids answer as they fly over the Seas of Galilee help explain the images and meanings of the Lord's Prayer. It takes a minimum of 30 minutes to play the game. Young children will need older helpers. 


Workshop Objectives:

  • Lord's Prayer could easily be called "The Prayer for the Kingdom". Jesus told us to pray for it. And that prayer is a set of marching orders as well.
  • Thus, in my software lesson, I'm going to focus on the kids learning and understanding the Lord's Prayer. 

Teacher preparation in advance:

  •  Remember to print the game guide and flying helps.
  • Gather the materials.
  • Explore the software.

 

Supply List:

  • Galilee Flyer CD for each of your computers

 



Lesson Plan 

Opening-Welcome and lesson Introduction:

Greet the children and introduce yourself. 

Open with a prayer. 

Dig-Main Content and Reflection: 

Application: 

The lesson begins with a brief Bible study to find the Lord's Prayer, recite it, then introduce it as a "Prayer for the Kingdom of God". Then you will read this restating of the Lord's Prayer as a "Prayer for the Kingdom" and move quickly into the Galilee Flyer CD game about the Lord's Prayer.

Our Father in your Kingdom your name is hallowed (remember: heaven=kingdom)

We pray that Thy Kingdom Come, and that Thy Will GET DONE here, as it does in heaven.

Give us today what we need to live in your Kingdom,

And forgive us our sins, as we go about your Kingdom forgiving others

In your Kingdom we trust you will deliver us from hard testing and from evil

for YOUR Kingdom, and your power, and your glory is forever. Amen
 

Lesson Activity: 

  • Ask the kids to recite the Lord's Prayer.
  • Find it in scripture.
  • Dive into the Galilee Flyer CD...they'll learn the scripture in-depth there.


Discussion/Reflection: 

Once they all land after completing the game, have everyone fly to the discussion area in the southern end of the sea to consider the discussion questions there. 

Closing:

End with a prayer. 

Adaption for younger children:

Younger children can play Galilee Flyer CD with lots of help. You'll also find the prayer in the PLAY AND LEARN CHILDREN'S BIBLE CD. 

This lesson is part of the 12 lesson set I wrote about the Kingdom of God over in the Parables Forum.  I am the owner of the two CDs referenced in this lesson. <>< Neil




For an alternate computer lab lesson on the Lord's Prayer...

Kid Pix

Have the kids REPHRASE the prayer just like I did above and type/illustrate it into KID PIX, --the program I call "powerpoint for kids". Whatever they type, the program can speak out loud. 

Let's Talk

You can also have older kids rephrase each line one at a time in LET'S TALK CD. The teacher should introduce each line one at a time and help the kids think of alternative vocab. Then play back what they type, discuss, and move on to the next line.

Original Post

Condensing the Lord's Prayer to Its Most Essential Keywords

I call this technique of learning a passage "How Few Can You Do?" and have used it with several other lessons here at rotation.org.  It not only helps the kids memorize key parts of a verse/passage, it helps them define key concepts through selection and debate!

The basic idea:  

Kids are challenged in several rounds of play to reduce the number of words in the passage of scripture to their most essential 'keywords.'  Of course, this will create debate! ....which is the point.  In the first round, you can tell them "take out half the words."  In the second round, you can tell them to reduce the remaining words to 10 essential words that still convey the most important concepts in the passage. In the third round, have them get it down to 3 or 5 words. You decided how many words. You ask the groups, "why did you leave out ____?" or "why did you include ______?"

The result can be something of a "Keyword Poem" which can also be turned into a poster or wall display.  (A teacher can come up with lots of variations on this game too.)

EXAMPLE: Here's my keyword poem distilled from Judges 4, the story of Deborah (which is a very long passage):

Israel cried
Deborah judged
God commanded
Barak attacked
Sisera fled
Jael pegged 

What words/phrases would your students reduce the Lord's Prayer down to?




How to do this on the computer:

Use a program such as "Let's Talk CD" or "Kid Pix CD" which converts whatever the kids type to computer speech. That way the kids can "play" their keyword distillations for the entire class to hear.
