Hannah’s Prayer Parents’ Page

Use the parents’ page as a way to keep in touch with parents, to keep them informed of what you are teaching, and to encourage them to continue reinforcing the lesson at home. Use this template as a starting point. Make it your own by telling them how the children responded to the lesson or something funny that happened.  You could substitute any activity suggestions that you think would be appropriate for parents to do with their children at home.


Dear Parents,

Today we learned about Hannah’s Prayer from 1 Samuel.   Help to reinforce the lesson to your child this week by talking to him or her about the lesson and helping him or her learn the memory verse.

Here are a few activity ideas…


Help your child memorize the verse.

James 5:13a (KJ21) “Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray.”


Allow your child to listen to this free pod cast from Karen and Kids. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/karen-kids/id203008622?i=11878626&mt=2  Scroll down to lesson # 134.


Read this story and do some online activities with your children at the Garden of Praise.



Here is another great online puzzle. http://www.biblewise.com/archives/2004/february/kids_korner/story_telling/story_telling.htm


Make a prayer chain together and hang it in your child’s room to remind him/her to pray every day. http://www.sundayschoolcrafts.com/Prayer_Chain.html  Or make a prayer pail as this mother did. http://www.lubirdbaby.com/2009/07/prayer-pail.html
