A Moment with Jesus

A Moment with Jesus

A Moment with Jesus is a prayer feature designed to connect the truths children are learning in religious education sessions to the presence of Jesus Christ in their lives. Originally appearing as a feature in the Christ Our Life student books, A Moment with Jesus invites children to pause in prayer. We are happy to provide these A Moment with Jesus cards for you in a downloadable format to use in a variety of ways.

  • Use A Moment with Jesus cards in your family as a way for children to share what they are learning about prayer in the Christ Our Life program.
  • Create a box for your A Moment with Jesus cards by decorating a shoebox and filling it with a complete set of cards. Draw out a card each evening for mealtime prayer.
  • Post a different card on your refrigerator each week, so that each trip to the fridge becomes a reminder to pray.
  • Use A Moment with Jesus prayers from previous lessons during times when you have a few extra moments for prayer.

Try creating your own prayer cards to share with your family or classmates.

Preparing A Moment with Jesus Prayer Cards

  • 4 cards can be printed on a standard 8 1/2” by 11” sheet of paper.
  • Cut on the dotted lines to separate the cards.
  • Consider laminating the cards for extra durability.
