The purpose of Primary 3 Lesson 34: We Can Pray to Heavenly Father is to strengthen the children's desire to pray.
- For younger classes- these prayer charts from Time Savers are great and easy to use for a class activity.
- If you have an older class, try this Prayer Flipbook from The Red Headed Hostess or use my Understanding Prayer booklet.
- Scripture Scouts Prayer Video- I love the Scriptures Scouts. You would have to get permission first to use this since its not an official church publication but I think it would be fun to watch! The video is the one on the right with the picture of the girl in the graduation cap. This video we sing when we forget how prayer goes. You can also buy Scripture Scouts here and have fun listening to it at home and in class.
- There is a file folder game included in The Red Headed Hostess class packet plus prayer posters.
