Low-Energy Elementary Bible Game: God Hears Our Voices
Gather children in an area where the video or audio app can be easily used. Say: Each of us is going to record a message. Then we’ll play the recording to see if we can guess who’s talking. When it’s your turn, say, “God knows my voice when I talk to him.”
Record each child’s voice, and then start the recording at the beginning.
You may want to jot down the order in which children speak. Be sure to leave a brief space after each voice so you can start and stop the recording without cutting off anyone’s words.
Ask children to find a new place in the circle, and then play the recording and let kids guess who’s talking.
At the end of the game, discuss the following question:
- What do you think it’s like for God to hear all of our different voices?
Read 2 Chronicles 30:27; then say: God doesn’t have to guess who’s talking to him. God knows the voice of each person who talks to him. God hears us when we pray to him!
