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 helping my daughter (child's name).  I bless her today with confidence in your help and love.  This week we are learning about when Jesus helped the Centurion.  Jesus was busy but still stopped and took the time to hear the Centurions request.   The Centurion knew that Jesus could help him simply by speaking His blessing.   Please help (child's name) to know that Jesus always hears her and is there to help her.   And please help (child's name) to trust fully in Your help just like the Centurion.  Thank you Jesus for always helping her.  Amen .
Grades 1-5:
Dear God, thank you for my son, (child’s name). I bless him today with a generous heart to be more than kind. We saw today that You are always kinder than You have to be. You gave us the ultimate example of kindness when You sent Your Son, Jesus, to be our Savior. Help (child’s name) to follow Your lead and be kinder than he needs to be, even when it’s hard, even when he might not want to. Show him how to be more than kind in a situation so others can see Your love! Thank you. 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.
