Teachers or Parents: Both of today's lessons have to do with prayer. The first lesson speaks of the privilege of prayer by noting how Jesus "in the days of his flesh" prayed. The Gospel text is a direct appeal by James and John for seats of honor in Christ's glory.

* Teach the different functions of prayer. A convenient guide is the word ACTS:

A = Adoration: praising God for God's greatness and glory.

C = Confession: putting ourselves in proper relation to our holy God by confessing our sins.

T = Thanksgiving: thanking God for all that we have and hope to have.

S = Supplication: asking God for things, help, aid, comfort, and so forth.

Undoubtedly these words will be too advanced for your children, but the basic concepts can help you explain the various functions of prayer for the Christian. God is not a magical genie in the sky, granting us every wish. ...
