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: 
Jesus, thank you for being friends forever with my daughter (child's name)  .  I bless her today with the knowledge that you will always love us and heal us.  We are so grateful for your healing power in our lives.  This week we are learning about four friends who took their friend in need to be healed by Jesus.  Thank you Lord that these four friends believed in Your healing power, didn't give up until they got to You, and that they loved their friend so much and wanted so badly to get him to you.  Please help (child's name) to strive to be like these four friends.  Amen .
Grades 1-5:
Dear Father God, thank you for my son, (child’s name). I bless him today to have a heart to share! We want to follow Jesus’ example to share what we have.  Please help (child’s name) to be generous with everyone around him. Help him to show Your love to other people by the way he shares. Thank you for taking care of us so we don’t have to worry about what we can get for ourselves. I bless (child’s name) to be willing to share what he has. 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.
