Lesson Review – Matthew 6:5-15 – The Lord’s Prayer


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Matthew 6:5-15, The Lord’s Prayer.

This is lesson 15 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 93 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 15 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Because of Jesus death in our place, for our sins, we can now freely pray to God as our Father. Not only that, but we no longer have to live lives to impress others, but can live for God’s glory alone.

The Lesson In A Sentence

Jesus teaches his follower to pray, not in a way to make much of themselves by impressing others, but humbly to their Father in heaven, who is the source of everything they need, including forgiveness.

Questions For You Kids

Parents, we have provided some basic answers to the questions so that when your child inevitably says, “I don’t remember,” you can feed them some clues and help them recount the lesson.

What is prayer?

Pray is just talking to God. Sometimes we ask for things like “our daily bread” or for forgiveness when we sin. Other times it is just telling God about all the things that are on your mind or things that you’re thankful for.

Jesus said some of the people weren’t praying correctly. What were they doing?

Some people were praying very loudly so that people would see them and think they were special. Other people were praying with big fancy words so that people would think they were super smart.

How did Jesus teach us to pray?

We are supposed to pray in a way that makes much of God and not us. We are just supposed to talk to him.

Did Jesus give us an example of how to pray?

Parents, your children should have been memorizing the Lord’s Prayer this month. Lead them in reciting it (Matthew 6:9-13). Discuss with them that these are not magic words, but a pattern of how we can talk to God. Examine each phrase and ask them how it might be an example of things we can pray. Consider using the Lord’s Prayer as a guide when you pray with your kids this week.
