PRAYER OF BLESSING

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: 
Dear God, thank you for my son, (child’s name). I bless him today to go the right way. Just like Jonah from today’s Bible story saw the right way to go, I ask you to show (child’s name) your perfect way. Help him to follow you. Thank you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
Grades 1-5:
Dear Father God, thank you for my daughter (child’s name). I bless her to have ears to hear You. I pray when she reads her Bible, she hears Your wisdom for her. When she is quiet, please help her to hear the Holy Spirit when He guides her. Help her not just HEAR Your words but put them into action. We learned in today’s story how important it is to hear you and act on what you say. Your word, the Bible, is our guide. Thank you. 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. If you would like to talk more about this contact Karen Stefacek, children’s pastor, at [email protected]
