Prayer Pictures

Activity Objective

To learn that we can pray at any time and at any place

Lesson Outcome

The children will understand that we can respond to God in prayer anywhere and at anytime.


  • Several magazine pictures of children doing different activities at different times of the day or night. (These pictures could be of children eating a meal, taking a bath, going to school, at the doctor, in a store, at the zoo, at a sporting event, at a holiday party, and so on.)


  • Taking a picture out of the pile, ask the children, Could I pray here? What might I be praying for?
  • Continue with the other pictures, asking the same questions.
  • Guide the children in realizing that they can pray to God anytime and anywhere about anything because prayer is building a relationship and/or friendship with God.
