Sunday School Lesson about Hannah - God Answers Prayer

In this Sunday School Lesson About Hannah children learn that when they have a problem they should pray about it. God hears our prayers and sees our hurting. God knows what is best for us and answers our prayers in his own time and in his own way. We must learn to wait and trust God to carry out his plans for our lives.

 

1. Have a Baby Shower

Children celebrate God's Answer to Hannah's prayer by having a baby shower. They draw pictures of presents they would like to give a baby and share their pictures with the class. They play baby shower games, sing songs, and play a game to remind them how God answers our prayers.

Poem

A Special Baby for Hannah
Written by Carolyn Warvel
© 2004, Digital by Design, Inc.

Hannah wanted a baby.
She thought that just maybe
if she would pray and pray and pray
she would get one right away.

She begged and pleaded and cried
but no matter what she tried
there was no baby by her side.
She just wanted to run and hide.
Hannah had to wait and wait and wait
because God answers prayers at his own rate.
God had a very special baby
in mind for this very special lady.
This baby would be someone great
So Hannah had to wait and wait and wait.

How to make:

Cut 2 - 6" red hearts , 1 - 6" black heart, and
1 - 6" white heart from red construction.

Write Psalm 139:23-24 & Psalm 86:11-13 on pieces of paper and glue them to the red hearts Assorted scriptures from the Bible referring to the heart to glue on the red hearts.
Write Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control." On a piece of paper and glue it to the white heart.

Write Ephesians 4:30-31 & 1 Peter 2:1 on pieces of paper and glue them to the black heart.

Layer the hearts red, black, white, red to make a book or make a chain with the hearts.

Show your children a piece of white paper. Emphasize that it is white and pretty. Tear the paper and tell them that this is kind of like what happens when you are mean to someone or say something mean to them. Their heart get damaged. We can tape it back together and still use it, but the paper is now marred because of the tear and the scar can still be seen or felt. We can say we are sorry but the damage is already done and the scar or pain from the ugly things we say or do are still in the heart of the person we said them to.

Moral: Be like Jesus and never have to apologize for what you say or do. (Sent in by Shelly)

The following activity comes from the lesson "Helping Hands". You will find a complete lesson with more crafts and activity ideas on The Resource Room a members only section of Danielle's Place. Sunday school Remember the Memory Verse Hand bible craft from www.daniellesplace.com

Explain to the children that sometimes when someone wants to remember something important, they tie a string on their finger to help them remember. We are going to write some things on the fingers of the hands we made that we need to remember to do this week. We will also tie a string on one of the fingers to remind us to do them.

What you will need: Colored paper, scissors, glue, and yarn.

How to make:

1. Before class print out and cut out hand shapes with the Bible verse. (A pattern for the this craft is available to members on The Resource Room.) You can also buy hand shapes from a learning store and have your children write the verse on the hand shape. Or you can have your children trace their hands, cut them out, and write the verse on the hand shape.

2. In class give each child a piece of paper and a hand. Help them glue the hand to the piece of paper by just putting glue on the palm area of the hand. Help your children come up with five different things they can do with their hands to be helpful. Write the ideas on the fingers. Curl down the fingers leaving the index finger sticking up. Tie a piece of yarn on to the pointer finger. Children can decorate the rest of the pictures anyway they would like. Tell your children to take their hands home to help them remember to do these things. They will get to place a hand on the bulletin board next week for each thing they remember to do during the week.

Play a Guessing Game and Review the Story

The following activity comes from the lesson "Helping Hands". You will find a complete lesson with more crafts and activity ideas on The Resource Room a members only section of Danielle's Place.

Tell your children, "Our hands are amazing. They can do so many wonderful, good things. And they can also be used to do bad things. I am going to show you some things I can do with my hands and I want you to see if you can tell me what I am doing and how it can be used for good things or for bad things.

1. OK Sign - This is telling someone that they did something good. It can be used for good because it would make a person feel good about himself.

2. Twiddling Your Thumbs - You twiddle your thumbs when you are bored. It would not be a good thing to do when someone is talking to you because it shows that you don't care about what they are saying.

3. Waving - When you wave you are saying good-bye, or hello, or come here. This is a good thing because you are telling the person you will miss them, or you are glad to see them, or you would like to talk to them.

4. Praying - Praying for others is a good thing. It shows you care about them.

5. Praising God by Raising Our Hands - This is a good thing. It shows that you want to be close to God, that you want him to be in control of your life.

6. Make a Fist - This could be bad because you are warning someone that you want to fight. It could also be good if you want to play a guessing game with someone to see if they can guess what is in your fist.

7. Pointing - Pointing at something to show someone you see something can be good, but pointing in someone's face is not very nice.

8. I Love You - (The thumb, forefinger, and pinky are up, the other fingers are down.) This means I love you. This is a good thing to tell someone.

9. Pounding Your Fist - Shows that you are mad. This is not a good thing, you should find another way of expressing your anger.

10. Clapping - Clapping shows that you like something. It's a good thing.

11. Thumbs Up Sign and Thumbs Down Sign - These are use to say yes and no.

12. Others: shaking hands, holding hands, high five, making a number one sign, sign to be quiet, I can't hear you sign, and stop.

Do Your Hands Do Right?

Can you clap them on your knees and promise not to tease?
Do your hands do right?

Wash Each Other's Feet

Explain to the children that back in Jesus' time most people had to walk to wherever they wanted to go. They wore sandals so their feet got very dirty. When visitors arrived at someone's house the servants would wash their feet. If someone wanted to show honor to someone, like Mary did in our story, they would take the job of the servant and wash the visitor's feet. Tell the children that we don't do this today, but there are many other ways we can honor each other. Pass out towels and split the children up into twos. Have them wash each other's feet in a bowl of water.

Serve One Another in Love Relay Race

Divide your children up into two or more teams. Give each child a Styrofoam tray. Place a plastic cup, bowl, spoon, and fork on the trays of the children that are first in line. The children must carry the trays with all the things on them to one end of the room and back with out dropping anything. If they drop something, they must go back and pick it up. Then they place all the items from their tray onto the next child's tray. Keep playing this way until one team wins. If you have older children, you can have them say the verse while they are "serving" the next child in line. If any of the children get pushy or mad because another team member isn't fast enough or makes a mistake, remind the children that the verse says, "Serve one another in LOVE.

Serving in Love at Snack Time

Bring in about five different types of snacks. Make sure they are small such as: Mini chocolate chip cookies, Oreo cookies, Teddy Grahams, bit size candy bars, etc. Place them all in a separate bowl on a table. Tell your children that they are going to practice "serving each other in love". Have the children take turns serving the child to his or her right. Each child will ask the child to his right what he would like to have. (Tell the children that they can have any combination of the five things on the table.) The child will then go and get the order for the child and bring it back to him. The child that has just been served will then ask the child on his right what he would like. Keep going until all the children have been served. Remind your children to say, "thank you" and to ask politely what each child would like to have.
