The Lord's Prayer

Video Workshop


Summary of Lesson Activities:

Uses the video: "The Lord's Prayer"  from Nest Entertainment's animated Bible series. It is about prayer, and the power of prayer. In it we see Jesus speaking the Lord's Prayer. The rest of this 30 minute video also covers several short stories from the Gospel where prayers are offered.


In the following lesson from "Learner,"  only part of the Lord's Prayer video is shown, and the lesson goes in a different direction.  But, you could show the entire Lord's Prayer video and delve into the issue of "intercessory prayer".... "Does Prayer Work?"  "And how does it work?"  (Which is what the stories in the video allude to.)


Leader Preparation:

  • Gather the materials.
  • Preview the video. 
  • Have the video ready to go.

Supplies List:

  • "The Lord's Prayer" from Nest Entertainment.
  • Popcorn supplies.




Opening-Welcome and Lesson Introduction: 

Greet the children, and begin with a prayer that they will all learn together the lessons that God has planned for them from his Word today. Ask what kinds of things they’ve learned in other workshops about the Lord’s Prayer and about prayer generally. Also ask if they are finding it easier to pray now that they have learned these things.


This workshop will use parts of two videos on Jesus teaching the Lord’s Prayer, and children will also get to act out some brief situational dramas to go with different phrases from the Lord’s Prayer.
Dig-Main Content and Reflection:


Start with the video Matthew, Vol. 1 from Visual Bible (1997). Show only the segment in which Jesus is teaching his disciples the Lord’s Prayer. Then show Animated Stories: The Lord’s Prayer by Nest Entertainment (1993).
Afterward, discuss how the two videos were alike and how they were different.


Introduce the game of acting out the situational dramas. It is similar to the old-fashioned game of Charades. Several choices of situations should be printed on slips of paper and put into a container for children to choose. After they’ve acted out the situation (either in small groups or alone), get out the timer, and give the class one minute to name the phrase of the Lord’s Prayer that the charade applied to.
Here is a list of situations to be pantomimed in Charades, and the applicable phrases:


  • “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name”
    --same as link above.
  • “Your kingdom come”
    --You pray for people or friends who don’t know God’s love
    --You give an offering in Sunday school or church so other people will hear about Jesus
  • For “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
    --Your family helps another family at church who need help getting their car repaired.
    --You meet a new student at school and you’re friendly and kind.
  • “Give us this day our daily bread”
    --Your parents have lost their jobs, and you wonder how they will pay the bills, so you pray.
    --Your family brings a bag of food to the food bank.
    --You make up a large list of Christmas presents you really want. Some are expensive games or toys.
  • “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors”
    --At school recess, a kid pushes you down and runs off, offering no apology.
    --You forgive one person, but then hold on to your anger with another
  • “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
    --Your teacher leaves the answers to the math test where you can see them while you’re taking the test.
    --You find a wallet with $200 in it. It also has the name of the owner in it.
  • “For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”
    --Pantomime the concept of "forever"
    --Show motions for "glory"

Do the game as time permits. You might want to start with only one “situation” for each phrase, then add others if there is time. The situations could also be used for discussion, instead of being acted out, to save time.



End with a circle of prayer in which everyone has a chance to pray and then say the Lord’s Prayer together.

DVD - “Teach Us To Pray” (New Superbook Series)JesusPrays_preview

Chris' Grandma is moving out of the house she lived in for years. Her husband, Chris' Grandpa, recently passed away and the home is just too big for one person. When Chris asks about how his Grandpa used to pray, Grandma has to excuse herself and sobs in the other room. Superbook then whisks the kids away and receives a lesson from Jesus on how to pray. When Chris returns he discovers a prayer card that has fallen from Grandpa's Bible and realizes Grandpa prayed the exact same words Jesus taught to His followers in the Lord's Prayer. Chris asks his Grandma to pray together - and they begin to say The Lord's Prayer. Grandma explains the meaning of each line to Chris and tells him it is the perfect outline for ALL prayer.

Lord's Prayer Song Video from Saddleback Kids Ministry
designed to be sung along with, reinforces memorization
modern style tune

Here's the companion video of the singer and two other leaders
doing the "motions" to the song.

Here's another video from Saddleback with adults reciting a version of the Lord's Prayer using modern words and phrases. Eye-catching and provocative imagery. Very interesting.
