Children hear that the word prayer is the special word that describes the way we talk to God. Identify with children prayers that have learned or begun to learn over the year (see daily prayers). They say some of these with other children in assembly or with others if they go to church.
Can they tell when people are praying? What have they noticed people do? Recall actions, words and songs. Help your child to come up with their own prayer. What are they thankful for? Who would they like to prayer for?
