Thy Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven

Lord's Prayer Skit - Ask and Yield .pdf

So, what did you learn 

about prayer from the skit?

Should we keep saying the 

same prayer over and over?


Do you pray from your heart 

and try to pray God's will, 

or do you pray your own will?  


Remember in the skit 

that we talked about the vine?

John 15:5 says 

I am the vine, ye are the branches. 

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit”

This says we need to "abide" in Him.

What do you think that means?

Watch this video

So, God wants us to be close to Him!

He loves to bless His children.

He's the one who gives us fruit.

And we can use that fruit 

in praying for others!


The other part of prayer is yielding. 

What does that mean?

-----------

Watch this scripture 

story about Naaman

Was Naaman healed instantly?  

What did he have to do first?

Why do you think the prophet 

made him wash in that dirty river?


Have you ever wanted something or asked God for something and it didn't happen all at once? 

Do you think God has something better?

Ask you parents or grandparents if they have ever had to wait for an answer to prayer.

Did God have something better in mind?

Sometimes we have to yield to God before we can receive the greater blessing that He has for us.

What do you think this looks like 

in real life?

What if you asked your mom if you could go outside to play,  

but she said you have to clean your room first?

She loves you and wants you to have fun and enjoy the beauty outside.

But, we have other things that are good for us, 

that help us to learn and grow and be responsible.  

Chores and schoolwork are also good for us.

So, you asked, and she responded.

Now, what should you do?

Will you yield?


Here is the promise 

if we yield our will to God:

John 14:7

If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you,

 ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

Do you know this scripture?

Matthew 6:37 

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, 

and his righteousness,

and all these things shall be added unto you.

Here's the song:

This is so exciting!

When our eyes are fixed on Jesus,

when we seek first His Kingdom, 

He takes care of the rest!


Challenge

Practice yielding to your parents and others 

in charge of you.  

Then yielding to God will be easier!

And, when you pray, ask and then say something like:

God, you know what is best. Your Kingdom come

on earth as it is in heaven.
