Give Him a Call

As your class prepares for the National Day of Prayer, have them
consider all the things that they would like to tell God-and the
things in their lives that they are thankful for. This Bible
activity will help you show them the true value of prayer.

Theme: National Day of Prayer

Text: James 5:16

Preparation: Bring an unplugged telephone or an
old cell phone.

The Message: (Hold up the telephone.) 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.) What do
you say when you call that person? How do you feel when you get a
busy signal or an answering machine?

There’s someone we can call anytime and never get a busy signal.
It’s God. (Read the Scripture.) Why is prayer powerful? Why is it
important to pray?

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.
