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 son, (child’s name). I bless him to look for Your power today. You are powerful! You made us with Your power. Thank You for loving us so much and making us so special. We love You. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
Grades 1-5:
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for my daughter, (child’s name). I bless her to look for Your wisdom today. We learned today that You are the source of all wisdom. Thank You for the example we have from Jesus of how important it is to SEARCH for wisdom. If Your very own Son thought it was important to find wisdom, surely it’s something we should look for, too. This week, help (child’s name) be wise—to find out what she should do and do it. We love You, and we ask 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.
