Pray Consistently to God

Today in our sixth grade Sunday school class we started a new unit on prayer. In addition to reviewing the Lord’s Prayer in our large group meeting, we also discussed the importance of praying consistently to God for our needs. Like the good Father He is, God listens to our prayers and answers them. This is the “second take” of a short puppet skit video our class made about Jesus’ story of the visitor at midnight in Luke 11.

Luke 11:5-10 NLT

“Then, teaching them more about prayer, he used this story: “Suppose you went to a friend’s house at midnight, wanting to borrow three loaves of bread. You say to him, `A friend of mine has just arrived for a visit, and I have nothing for him to eat.’ And suppose he calls out from his bedroom, `Don’t bother me. The door is locked for the night, and my family and I are all in bed. I can’t help you.’ But I tell you this—though he won’t do it for friendship’s sake, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence. “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.”
