Prayer requests from our children

For our last chapel gathering in July, we covered the BIG question: “How do I communicate with God?” The children were engrossed in the retelling of the story of Gideon, and how God called and worked with the reluctant hero of faith. God called Gideon a “Mighty Warrior” while he was still a meek and timid guy hiding from the bullies of his day, the Midianites. We talked about how Jesus taught us to pray by calling God our father, and that as God’s children, he wants to give us what is best. We even reviewed the Intermountain Children’s version of the Lord’s Prayer from our lessons last fall.

At the conclusion of our time together, I solicited prayer requests from the children. Without breaking confidences, here are some of the requests I received. Would you pray for our children and join them as they lift these requests to God?

  • I would like more books, and more happiness and to feel more special.
  • Pray for me to get done with treatment and to have a family.
  • I would like a toy car.
  • Pray for a family member who had surgery, and pray for me. Thank you.
  • I want to go home.
  • Pray for my brother’s asthma and for my grandma to stay alive.
  • Pray that I will someday see my birthparents.
