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 loving my son (child's name) so dearly.  I bless him today with an understanding that because of your perfect love for him he can fully trust your plan for his life.   When things are hard may he remember that even the hard things are a part of your perfect plan.  When things don't go the way he expected them to go ma y he turn to you and trust that even the unexpected things are a part of your perfect plan for his life.  Thank you Lord for helping  (child's name) to trust, follow, and enjoy your plan for his life.  Amen.
Grades 1-5:
Dear Father God, thank you for my daughter, (child’s name). I bless her today to have a heart to forgive. We saw in today’s lesson that even Peter and Jesus had a tough time in their friendship, but when Jesus forgave Peter, Peter knew how great Your love was! I pray that when (child’s name) goes through a rough time in her friendships, Holy Spirit, remind her how much better life is when she forgives and give her the strength to forgive her friend or to ask her friend for forgiveness. Please give her what she needs to choose forgiveness. We love You and pray this 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.
