This children’s message, Give Him a Call, will help you show them the true value of prayer. Theme: National Day of Prayer Text: James 5:16 Preparation: Bring a toy phone, an unplugged telephone, or an old cell phone. Children’s Ministry Message: Give Him a Call Hold up the telephone. Say: Do you like talking on the phone? Let’s pass this phone around. When you get it, tell who you like to call. Pass the phone around. Ask: What do you say when you call that person? How do you feel when you get a busy signal or voicemail? Say: There’s someone we can call anytime and never get a busy signal. It’s God. Read the Scripture. Ask: Why is prayer powerful? Why is it important to pray? Say: As we get ready for the National Day of Prayer, let’s think of things we can tell God. Let’s pass the phone again. This time, say one thing you’d like to tell God. Pass the phone. Talking to God is easier than talking on the phone. God is always home and never busy. God looks forward to hearing from you in prayer.
