A New Way to Pray the Lord’s Prayer


  • Pens
  • Big Sheets of paper- 1 per table
  • The Lord’s Prayer in the sections 6 below on Powerpoint slides
  • The Lord’s Prayer in full on a Powerpoint slide


Say that we are going to pray the Lord’s prayer and think about the meaning of the different parts of it. Ask the congregation to say that words in bold. Ask them then to write down after each section any words or prayers that come to mind about the theme. Children can either write or they can draw pictures about who or what they would like to pray for.

Slide 1:

Our Father in heaven

Hallowed be your name.

(prayers of praise and thanks to God)

Slide 2:

Your Kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as it is in heaven.

(pray for a situation that needs God’s reign)

Slide 3:

Give us today our daily bread,

(pray for a person or group of people in need)

Slide 4:

And forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

(pray for situations of conflict)

Slide 5:

And lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

(pray for God’s justice)

Slide 6:

the Kingdom, and the power,

and the glory, are yours

now and forever,



Pray the full Lord’s prayer together at the end.
