End your children’s church experience by praying these blessings. 
Invite kids to give God their attention and say that you are going to pray. 
You might encourage them to sit or stand palms up, showing they are ready to receive a gift as you bless them.

Ages 2-6: 
Thank you God for my daughter, (child’s name). I bless her today to not fear. God, You are the best! There is no one like You. Help (child’s name) remember that no matter where we go or what we do, You are with her. She doesn't have to be afraid because she is never alone. You’re awesome God. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
Grades 1-5:
Dear God, thank you for my son, (child’s name). I bless him today to stay focused. Thank You for helping Nehemiah and the people stay focused and complete the job You gave them. There are so many things that can distract us today. Please help (child’s name) to stay focused on what needs to be done—and give him the initiative to see things through to the end. We love You, and we pray these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
If your child is ready for the life-changing faith step of trusting in Jesus as their savior and choosing to follow him, continue to lead them in prayer, helping them give voice to their decision.
