Praying As We Should

Many times, as families, we don’t all pray as we should. As parents, it is our job to teach our children how to pray. To do this, we must lead by example. If our kids rarely see us praying, they are not going to want to do it, if they don’t hear you pray, they are not going to want to do it, and will not know how to do it. This can make prayer intimidating for them.

Exploring Family Prayer

In this 7-day Bible study, we will explore prayer at the family level, and you will guide (through parent prompts) your children or teens into praying for themselves, as they learn how to talk to God, and what they can talk to Him about. Each parent prompt will be bolded and any information that’s only for parents, take the time to read over the Bible study before beginning that lesson.

Prayer Topics

Each topic is divided into a day. Family Bible Study shouldn’t take a long time to get the point across to your children. This is designed to be done open Bible style, reading, and discussing. The assignments are designed to bring a better understanding to your children or teens, and don’t have to be done the same night, or time. Give at parents’ discretion.

*All translations are from the NLT (New Living Translation) unless otherwise noted, making it easier for children and teens to follow along.

Before starting your bible Study...

Always be consistent in having Bible study with your family. The more you do, the more they look forward to it, the more you grow as a family.

Our kids may be tired, we may be tired; either way, each lesson will be to the point. Yet leaving room for you to expound upon scriptures for days, weeks, or even a month.

These lessons can be done day or night. Whenever your family gets together to study!

Start off small, and then go as the Lord leads you. Don’t always expect things to be perfect. Add effort and allow God to do the rest.

You got this!

Ideally:

Turn off any electronics and distractions as much as possible at least 20-30 minutes before sitting down together.

What is prayer? Day 1

Today, we are going to explore what prayer is.

Parents: Have you ever asked your parents for something? Or have you ever sat down and had a conversation with us, telling us how you felt and gave us updates about your life? (wait for answers)

This is just how we communicate with God in prayer. Prayer is spiritual. It’s our Father in heaven we are talking to and just like we talk to mom and dad, it’s the way we talk to God for the things we need.

When we received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we became a “child” of God. Now we have the privilege to talk to Him, we can pray about anything, and He hears us. As Christians, we have a personal relationship with Jesus that will last forever.

Read Matthew 7:7-11

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

“You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? 10 Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not! 11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

Because God is our Father, we have access to Him with Prayer, He invites us to Him, and He gives us attention when we are speaking to Him.

Read 1 John 5:14-15

14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him15 And since we know he hears us when we make our requests, we also know that he will give us what we ask for.

God is looking for us to be obedient children, forming an intimate relationship with Him through our prayers. God loves you and cares about you and your family. Remember, God put Noah and his family on a boat to save them from the flood, as they were the only ones found righteous (Genesis 6:13-22).

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  1. What did we learn about prayer today?

(Answers vary)

  1. How are we God’s children?

(When we received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We now have a personal relationship with Jesus that will last forever if we follow Him.)

  1. How can we be sure God hears us?

1 John5:14-15, Asking for the things that pleases God are according to His will.

 

Family Assignment:

Pray together as a family. Start by using the prayer outlined in “The Plan,” at the beginning of this section.

Next, Thank God for the day and anything He has done for you, keeping it proper for the age group ( no more than 2-3 things if younger kids who can’t sit still).

Now, have each child thank God for at least one thing they are thankful for (no more than 3, in the family prayer, when they pray on their own, you can encourage them to thank God for as many things as they would like).

Then, allow each child to pray to God for something that’s on their hearts. If they are reluctant, encourage them and give them leads if necessary. The more this is done, the better the family will get at praying together.

Prayer Is Not… Day 2

Parents: Now that we know what prayer is, today, we will focus on what prayer is not, so we can pray correctly.

If you have ever observed when people pray in your church, you will see that many people have their own ways to coming before God in prayer.

As Christians, we must be careful that our prayers are not a show. Our prayers are not meant to entertain people, or to make ourselves look more holy. We don’t need to try to “out pray” someone else or be the loudest at praying so everyone can hear just us.

Jesus teaches us that when we pray to put on a show, for everyone to see us, we have our rewards. You can’t expect for God to answer that prayer. Matthew 6:5

“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites who love to pray publicly on street corners and in the synagogues where everyone can see them. I tell you the truth, that is all the reward they will ever get.”

Jesus wants us to come before Him with a sincere heart and with the right attitude!

Read Luke 18:10-14 (NLT)

10 “Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a proud, self-righteous Pharisee, and the other a cheating tax collector. 11 The proud Pharisee ‘prayed’ this prayer: ‘Thank God, I am not a sinner like everyone else, especially like that tax collector over there! For I never cheat, I don’t commit adultery, 12 I go without food twice a week, and I give to God a tenth of everything I earn.’

13 “But the corrupt tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed, but beat upon his chest in sorrow, exclaiming, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner.’ 14 I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home forgiven! For the proud shall be humbled, but the humble shall be honored.”

God doesn’t want us to have a self-righteous attitude when we are praying. We are to come humbly to Him. Praying on your knees, although not required, is a way of humbling (to lower yourself in dignity or importance) yourself before God, giving Him reverence (deep respect for someone or something).

This is why we see people praying on their knees with their hands up to heaven.

God doesn’t care about how long our prayers are, or how short. Then again, He also doesn’t want us rattling the same prayer so much, that it becomes a meaningless mantra (a statement or slogan repeated frequently). Rushing, just so we can be done with our prayers.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:7-8(NLT)

7-8 “Don’t recite the same prayer over and over as the heathen do, who think prayers are answered only by repeating them again and again. Remember, your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!

Family Assignment:

Think about how you and your family pray. Does everyone get down on their knees, is there someone who walks around while praying, or sits upright, do you all close your eyes?

All of these are different ways to pray and there is nothing wrong with either. God is looking at our intentions, our heart.

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

How Do We Pray? Day 3

Today’s Bible study will be all about how to pray to God. We will look to the Lords model prayer for us in Matthew 6:5-14.

Parents: If you feel like this Bible study will take a long time for your family, break it up into two days. Learning how to pray is the foundation of building a lasting relationship with Christ, and the starting of your children’s relationship with Him.

Ask your family: Have you ever drew a picture before? How did you know how to draw that picture? Or have you ever written a paper before? How did you learn how to write?

This leads us into our next lesson, just like you needed to learn how to do those things, and had many examples, we must learn how to pray in the same way.

God has given us an example of how to pray with The Lord’s Prayer, which is a model prayer Jesus told us to do. It is not the only prayer that God wants us to ever do, but this prayer is the beginnings of all our prayers to come, as it covers everything, we add the substance.

Let’s take a closer look at the Lord’s prayer and learn how we can apply it to our prayers.

First Jesus helps us to understand that we are to go into our prayer rooms to seek his face. To have a place where we can be quietly before the Lord, who will hear us, and we need to be able to hear Him speak to us.

But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:6

Open your Bibles to Matthew 6:9-13 to begin the study.

Pray like this: The Lord instructs us.

Our Father in heaven,

 may your name be kept holy.

When we say this, we recognize our relationship with God, as our father. This is a form of worship to God; do you see how this begins the prayer?
10 May your Kingdom come soon. When we say this in our prayers, we show our anticipation at the coming of the Lords Kingdom to be established on earth. See Luke 18:7-9

May your will be done on earth,

as it is in heaven.

Here, we are praying for Gods will to be done, not only on earth, but in our lives as well. We are asking for His guidance. See Romans 12:2
11 Give us today the food we need, Praying this section helps us to understand that we can ask God to supply us with our daily needs. Not just food, but shelter, clothing, etc. In all this we are seeking Him first. See Matthew 6:33 and Psalm 37:4

12 and forgive us our sins,

as we have forgiven those who sin against us.

This is clear: If we want our Father in heaven to forgive us, we must first forgive those who have sinned against us. This part also helps us show love and mercy, like Jesus did.

Forgiveness also sets us free! See Luke 23:24, Mark 11:25, Matthew 18:21-22, and Ephesians 4:26-27 among some.

13 And don’t let us yield to temptation,

but rescue us from the evil one.

This part of the prayer focuses on spiritual warfare. We ask the Lord to not let us be overcome by evil. For we are to overcome evil with good! We gear ourselves up with the armor of God, to resist satan and all his tactics for the day  “-Not Today Satan!”

See Romans 12:21, Ephesians 6:10-20, James 4:7

This template prayer is based on Gods will. When we pray like this, we can have confidence that we are praying according to the will of God, as His children. And because of this, He will hear us.

14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. 1 john 5:14-15 NKJV

 

Optional Family Discussion Questions:

  1. Which part of the Lords prayer focuses on worship?

Matthew 6:9

  1. In which part of the Lords prayer are we asking for guidance?

May your will be done on earth,

as it is in heaven.”

Worship in Prayer Day 4

So far, we’ve talked about what prayer is, is not, and how to pray. Today, we will talk about worship in prayer and its importance.

Parents: If you’ve ever experienced a church service whether online or in person, you might have noticed that the service always starts off in praise and this is usually before the main prayer. Why? Because when we worship, we allow the spirt of God to move us in our prayers.

Praising God before we start praying, sets the atmosphere for prayer.  The Spirit of The Lord helps you to remember those things that you need to pray for, it moves you to let it all go before the Lord. Praise helps you develop that intimate relationship with Jesus!

In our family, we like to start off our family prayers with asking God’s forgiveness of our sins, then we jump right into worship. We make it a habit to sing one song that we all take turns choosing, but sometimes we enjoy praising so much that we end up singing another.

Parents: There’s just something about praise that really ignites prayer. David says it best,

“Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Know that the Lord, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
For the Lord is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations.”
Psalm 100

In this song of praise, we see the importance of worshiping God as we come before Him. Remember that one of the first things Jesus instructs us to do is praise God, in the Lord’s Prayer. See the previous lesson.

Praising God is also thanking Him. Letting the Lord know how thankful we are helps us to find contentment and what He has already given us. Many times, we can go to God with a shopping list of wants and desires, but when we take the time to praise and thank God for what we have, we get a peace that surpasses understanding (Philippians 4:7).

When you worship God before praying, consider thanking Him, praising His name, and honoring Him. Praise is what makes the enemy (satan) flee. Satan cannot stand praise, so go for it! Give it to the Lord!

Family Assignment:

If you haven’t already, start your prayers off with praise from here on out. Locate a worship song that moves your family, and everyone just praise Him together!

Family and Prayer Day 5

Today we will talk about our family and prayer.

Parents: ask your children why you have been gathering to have prayer and Bible study.

There is this old saying,

“A family that prays together, stays together.”

While this might sound good, it is not Biblical. Meaning, you will not find this quote in the Bible. However, when you pray together as a family, you are setting a standard on which your family can stand on. You are creating a foundation that will build your family up, inspire, bless, and strengthen your family in the most difficult of times.

Parents: When we come together as a family of believers to pray, we can be sure that the Spirit of the Lord is among us.

Jesus says,

19 “I also tell you this—if two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask for, my Father in heaven will do it for you. 20 For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I will be right there among them.” Matthew 18:19-20

This means that our very own family can move God to get whatever we ask or agree upon in prayer, that’s in accordance with Gods will. Our family constitutes a local church with Gods presence assured in Christ. Therefore, we can pray for healing among each other, we can bring prayer requests to family prayer, and effectively do Bible study together.

In fact, what our family is doing is essentially “corporate prayer.” Which is a gathering of people to pray. The Bible says “Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” James 5:16 ESV

Our prayers as a family are stronger than if we prayed alone. This is how God designed prayer among His people. Open your Bibles to read Acts 12:5-18

 But earnest prayer was going up to God from the church for his safety all the time he was in prison.

The night before he was to be executed, he was asleep, double-chained between two soldiers with others standing guard before the prison gate, when suddenly there was a light in the cell and an angel of the Lord stood beside Peter! The angel slapped him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists! Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your shoes.” And he did. “Now put on your coat and follow me!” the angel ordered.

So Peter left the cell, following the angel. But all the time he thought it was a dream or vision and didn’t believe it was really happening. 10 They passed the first and second cell blocks and came to the iron gate to the street, and this opened to them of its own accord! So they passed through and walked along together for a block, and then the angel left him.

11 Peter finally realized what had happened! “It’s really true!” he said to himself. “The Lord has sent his angel and saved me from Herod and from what the Jews were hoping to do to me!”

12 After a little thought he went to the home of Mary, mother of John Mark, where many were gathered for a prayer meeting.

In this passage, we see Peter who has just escaped from prison by a miracle that only God can perform, all because there were believers gathered in a home praying for him. The Bible calls it “earnest prayer.” It was God’s will that Peter be saved, earlier in the chapter, the Apostle James didn’t escape his fate.

Our family prayers can move mountains, they can shift the atmosphere. We are to NEVER stop praying as a family!

This is one thing that even your children will never forget as they age and start a family of their own. They will have been able to see God move on behalf of their family and have the confidence to start family prayer and devotion in their own homes.

  1. Why are your family prayers so important?

Making Prayer a Daily Habit Day 6

Prayer is coming humbly before our God, seeking His face and being attentive to the voice of God. We are to seek God in our private places, giving Him praise and worship before entering His courts. We can move bigger mountains when we come together as a family to pray.

Today, we will discuss making prayer a daily habit for our lives.

Parents: Ask your family, “What are some habitual things that you love to do? How did you develop this habit?” i.e., brushing teeth every day and night, exercising, self-care. (Encourage, but time the conversation, if time permits, elaborate more.)

As you get used to setting a time and place for your prayers, you will find it increasingly easy to make a habit of talking to Jesus. You might be running an errand, doing homework, or laying in your bed, when suddenly you just feel like talking to Jesus, giving Him your highs and lows.

One of the best ways to make prayer a daily habit is by planning. Think about the best times in your day, when you are alone. When is the home the quietest, or where can you find a quite space, and at what time? Planning out your prayer life will help you get into the habit of taking time out for Jesus.

As a family, when planning our Family prayers and devotions, we think about the same things: When is everyone at their best for prayer and devotion, when is it a suitable time, where should we pray and sit to have devotions? Planning your family prayers and Bible time will help you as a family make a habit of praying and reading your Bibles together.

We again look to the example that Jesus left us when it comes to prayer.

He often went out to a desolate place to pray; this was his habit (Luke 5:16). Jesus would get away to spend time in prayer with the Father. He often did this in the morning while it was still dark (Mark 1:35). Praying at night or early in the morning, on a mountaintop or in a desolate place, allowed Jesus to give his full attention to God.

Turn your Bibles to the book of Luke 11:1-13

Once when Jesus had been out praying, one of his disciples came to him as he finished and said, “Lord, teach us a prayer to recite just as John taught one to his disciples.”

And this is the prayer he taught them: “Father, may your name be honored for its holiness; send your Kingdom soon. Give us our food day by day. And forgive our sins—for we have forgiven those who sinned against us. And don’t allow us to be tempted.”

5-6 Then, teaching them more about prayer, he used this illustration: “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You would shout up to him, ‘A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit and I’ve nothing to give him to eat.’ He would call down from his bedroom, ‘Please don’t ask me to get up. The door is locked for the night and we are all in bed. I just can’t help you this time.’

“But I’ll tell you this—though he won’t do it as a friend, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you everything you want—just because of your persistence. And so it is with prayer—keep on asking and you will keep on getting; keep on looking and you will keep on finding; knock and the door will be opened. 10 Everyone who asks, receives; all who seek, find; and the door is opened to everyone who knocks.

11 “You men who are fathers—if your boy asks for bread, do you give him a stone? If he asks for fish, do you give him a snake? 12 If he asks for an egg, do you give him a scorpion? Of course not!

13 “And if even sinful persons like yourselves give children what they need, don’t you realize that your heavenly Father will do at least as much, and give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him?”

Jesus encourages us to keep praying and keep asking. He wants prayer to be a habit in our lives because prayer makes us strong against the enemies tactics. We don’t stand a chance against our enemies without prayer, it gives satan the foothold he needs into our lives. Our spirit craves that time with God, we can’t survive without prayer!

We are to “rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” For “the earnest prayer of a righteous man has great power and wonderful results.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, James 5:16)

Creating A Prayer Journal Day 7-The Praying Habit

King David was known for his love of songs and prayers to God. He mostly wrote the entire book of Psalms.

If you look at it the way King David did, this was sort of like his prayer journal. He would talk to God about everything in his life, writing songs, and telling his highs and lows. David would also keep prayers as psalms.

One of the most powerful prayers, is a prayer to protect yourself and your family. We call this prayer, the prayer of self-deliverance.

Parents: Today, we will focus on learning how to pray scripture in our prayers, as we pray for our family, and our family’s protection.

One of the greatest ways to pray for anyone is by using Biblical scripture, because it never runs out. When you write a prayer, try using the Bible as your source for the prayer.

Open your Bibles to  Exodus 20:12

Honor you

r father and mother, that you may have a long, good life in the land the Lord your God will give you.”

Parents: How can you use this in a prayer? (Wait while your children give a few examples.)

Great! You can easily say, “Dear Lord Jesus, help me to honor my mother and father today, so that I may have the good life you have chosen for me. In Jesus name, amen.

Let’s try this again!

Read Galatians 6:10

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.”

We can use this in a prayer by saying, “Heavenly Father, help me to see the opportunities where I can do good to those around me, especially my brothers and sisters in Christ, and my family. In Jesus name, amen.”

Use scripture when praying over the sick:

Read Isaiah 53:5 and James 5:14-15

“But he was wounded and bruised for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace; he was lashed—and we were healed!

And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.”

We would pray, “Lord, I pray healing over (in put name), in Jesus name, for you said my prayer of faith will save the sick, and you yourself will raise them up. If any sins were committed, they are forgiven. For you were wounded and bruised for our sins, you were beaten that we may have peace, and you were lashed that we may be healed. I ask this in your holy name, Jesus. Amen.”

Now that we see how we can use scripture to make our prayers more effective, todays assignments will help you develop those skills and give you practice. You will also make a prayer journal today using the included Prayer Journal Printables.

This Journal is also sold in our shop for purchase if you are not using the curriculum and assignment pack.

*Feel free to end the family Bible study here, with prayers and the assignments for the week. The remainder of this study is for the parents.

Parents, when praying for yourself and your family, especially when you feel as if your family is under the attack of the enemy, its wise to have a special prayer that wards off the enemy, and that will help you get the peace you desire.

The Bible teaches us to “put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day…” Ephesians 6:11-13

So having a prayer of self-deliverance is like taking up your armor. Because we live in such a dark time, we need a little more ammo while fighting spiritually. This prayer is meant to be prayed aloud, and at least once a day. Feel free to mix it with your own prayers, make it yours!

See the Prayer of Self-Deliverance poster, in the assignments section of the curriculum, ready to be printed and hung where you can access it to war in prayer!

Pray this prayer over you, your family, and your place of dwelling. Hear this prayer on Podcast here.

Family Assignment:

Make a prayer list for all those who need prayer. Your teen should have already started something like this on day two. So, they might have a list to read off to you. Jot down some of theirs as the family thinks of who is in need. Start with your family right in front of you and on.

Next, think of scriptures that you can pray alongside your prayers. If you need help locating scriptures, you can try searching keywords on Bible gateway, or Bible Verses for You, where you can use their search boxs. As you pray often, these scriptures will be committed to memory.

Here is a sample template:

Name Scripture Need Date prayer was answered
Mom James 5:14/3 John 1:2 Healing on her ankle 10/10

 

(If the prayer was answered and you don’t know the date, just input the day you noticed.)

Family Assignment:

Create prayer journals with the prayer journal Printables included in the assignment pack.
