S14 the Lord's Prayer Activity & Collage

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


Aim: To help the young people understand the meaning of The Lord’s Prayer. This activity could be completed over several weeks. Taken from the BB Junior Pro Pack Spirit S-14


• A large sheet of paper (2 flipchart sheets side by side is ideal)
• Colouring pens/pencils
• Coloured card and paper
• Glue
• Scissors


This activity can be created by the whole section, allowing differentiation, e.g. those who are good at writing might prefer to do the writing bits, whilst those who are better at drawing and colouring can do that activity. There is something here for everyone.

Divide the paper into 8 sections. Give each section the following titles:

Our Father in Heaven
Your name is holy
Your kingdom come
Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven
Give us today the food we need
Forgive us the wrong things we have done as we forgive wrongs others have done to us
Do not lead us into temptation but keep us safe from evil
For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, For ever and ever.

Label each section with these titles.

The Lord’s Prayer
Banner – create using any suitable software programme or make own using large writing. If not printed in colour, ask young people to colour the banner, adding their own pictures or any that you may have downloaded ready for them to cut out, colour if necessary and paste on to the banner. Use this banner to attach to the top of the flip chart sheets.

Our Father in Heaven
Speech bubble and picture of boy. It is special to be able to call God ‘Father’. God loves to listen to us, so in the speech bubble ask young people to say something to God. Young people can then colour the picture. Fix all the speech bubbles to the labelled section.

Your Name is Holy
Create a patchwork collage. Use the attached examples of ‘words’ we can use to say that God is very special. Colour, pattern and cut out the patchwork shapes. Paste then on to the labelled section, but put them together as you would a patchwork quilt.

Your Kingdom Come
Our prayer is that more and more will become friends of Jesus and be part of God’s family. Young people to draw round their hands. Each finger to represent part of prayer ie promise, thank you, forgiveness, others, themselves. Cut out the hands, colour them and fasten to the labelled section of the collage.

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven
Draw pictures of the world as God would want it.

Give us today the food we need
Cut out the fish/bread shapes, colour them in and fasten to the collage.

Forgive us the wrongs
Write a sentence about things we are sorry for.

Do not lead us into temptation
Pictures of things that are wrong. Put a large cross over the pictures.

For Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, For ever and ever.
Young people write their names and ‘customise’ the collage, with their own ideas and creations. This gives Glory to God by the young people having taken part in the activity and created something special for the Church/meeting place.

These are only ideas. Shapes, banners, titles etc. can all be customised using colour, patterns, wavy scissors etc. The possibilities are endless. The young people will provide their own ideas also, so leave them to add the ‘xtras’
