FHE: Prayer

Don't forget to check out this and enter. :)

Sing: "I Pray in Faith"
Opening Prayer:

Teach 4 Fingered Approach to Prayer. (Hold up a finger for each number or Print out the words big on paper)
1. Dear Heavenly Father
2. We thank thee...
3. We ask thee...
4. In the Name of Jesus Christ Amen.

Share the Story of Enos using the Gospel Art Kit

Object Lesson: Have the kids sit on the floor beside their dad.
Ask: how do you know your dad is here? (You can see him, touch him, hear and talk to him)
Blind fold the kids.
Ask: how do you know your dad is here? Can you see him? Can you touch him? Can you hear and talk to him?
This is like our Heavenly Father. Just because we can't see Him, doesn't mean He isn't close and listening to us. We have to listen more and talk more. And feel the Holy Ghost near to feel His Spirit.

Bear testimony.
Sing song again.
Closing Prayer.

I have to say though, I scrolled down the picture of Enos, and saw "fold the kids" and was thinking "what the heck?" and then saw the rest of your instructions along the side of the Enos picture. Too funny!
