The Lord’s prayer in the Bible: Creative activities for your children's ministry

The Lord's Prayer is a cornerstone of the Christian faith, and a powerful tool for communicating with God. It is a model for prayer that teaches us not only what to pray, but also how to pray. The prayer covers a range of topics, from addressing God as our Father, to asking for daily provision, forgiveness, and protection from evil.

The Lord's Prayer can be found in two versions in the Bible, with a longer version in Matthew's gospel and a shorter version in Luke's gospel. Both versions hold great significance, with the longer version being more commonly recited in churches and Christian gatherings.

On this page, you will find a range of creative ideas, resources, and activities that explore the Lord's Prayer in depth. These resources can be used in your children's ministry, kid's church, Sunday school, or Christian primary school to teach children about the power of prayer and how to pray effectively using the Lord's Prayer as a guide.
