Craft: Paint Stick King Saul

Game: Telephone
Have the children sit in a circle, or around the table. Start with one child and whisper one of the phrases shown below into his or her ear. Have that child whisper the same phrase into the ear of the child to his or her left, and continue around the circle until the last child is told the phrase. Then have the last child say what he or she heard out loud to see how close it was to the original phrase.

God will always hear our prayers.
It makes Jesus very happy when we pray.
If we ask anything in Jesus’ name, He will do it.
We can pray anytime morning, noon, or night.

Compare this game to how when we pray, God hears exactly what we mean to say, even when we don’t say it exactly the way we want.
