The Lord's Prayer has much to teach us about our great and glorious God as well as about prayer. Lord, Teach Us To Pray is an intergenerational curriculum that instructs young and old to approach God in prayer with a heart of submission to God’s desires and a trust in His good and right answers. Through prayer, you will learn to know your Heavenly Father better and enjoy fellowship with Him.
Family Kit The Lord, Teach Us To Pray Family Kit (electronic only) has been created for families to use at home along with teaching at church from the Classroom Kit. Discussion questions, prayer cards, and activity cards aid families in their study on prayer.

One of the great blessings Christians enjoy is that we have unhindered access to our Heavenly Father. We are invited into His presence anywhere, at any time, with no need for an intermediary. Yet often we flounder in prayer. Our prayers can be without passion and we struggle to know how to pray according to God’s will.
This is not a new problem—even Jesus disciples struggled to know how to pray and asked Jesus to instruct them. Jesus responded by giving them the Lord’s Prayer as a model or pattern for prayer—a pattern of seeing who God is, understanding His desires and purposes, and trusting His wisdom, power, and love to meet our needs in the way He knows is best.
The purpose of prayer is not to change God, but to change the person praying. Through prayer, God reveals our sinful hearts, makes His will known, discloses His Kingdom purposes, and reveals Himself to us. True prayer is getting to know God better.
Lord, Teach Us To Pray is an intergenerational study on prayer. This study is not about the correct formula for prayer—it's about God's children learning to fellowship with Him in prayer.
The Family Kit is to be used in conjunction with the Classroom Kit.
Electronic curriculum is a great option for many teachers. Learn about how to use our electronic resources and our policies regarding electronic licenses.
