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.
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.
Hannah and Samuel Paper Dolls
Children cut out the Paper Dolls, color them, and place Baby Samuel in Hannah's arms.
Color or Make a Picture of Baby Samuel with Blocks
Children can color this picture or cut out the blocks and arrange them and Baby Samuel on another sheet of paper the way they would like them to be.
Special Baby for Hannah

She thought that just maybe
if she would pray and pray and pray
she would get one right away.
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.

I AM VERY IMPRESSED!!! I AM THE DAUGHTER OF PREACHER OF A SMALL MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH. I HAVE BEEN IN CHURCH ALL MY LIFE. I HAVE NEVER BEEN A TEACHER, I'M JUST NOT THE TYPE TO STAND IN FRONT OF A CLASS AND TEACH. I CAN PLAY THE PIANO AND SING, BUT I AM NO TEACHER. HOWEVER, TO GIVE A YOUNG LADY A BREAK FROM CHILDREN'S CHURCH, SEVERAL OF US HAVE SIGNED UP, BY THE MONTH. A FRIEND OF MINE AT CHURCH FOUND YOUR WEBSITE AND E-MAILED IT TO ME. I HAVE FOUND IT TO BE A TRUE "LIFESAVER". THE LORD KNEW I NEEDED HELP (BECAUSE I'M NO TEACHER). YOUR LESSONS ARE EASY FOR SMALL CHILDREN TO UNDERSTAND (AND OLD NON-TEACHERS TO TEACH). KEEP UP THE GREAT BLESSING YOU ARE DOING. IT'S JUST WONDERFUL. I CAN'T EXPRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPRESSED I AM. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR MINISTRY. LOVE IN CHRIST, JERITA CAMPBELL

Keys to a Happy Heart Bible Lesson
Scripture References: "And whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he." Proverbs 16:20b, KJV
In this lesson children learn that the happiness we feel when we get new things only lasts for a short while, but the happiness that comes from Jesus continues to grow in our hearts as we get to know him better and better.
A Heart Like Jesus
What you will need: Red, black, and white construction paper, scissors, stapler.
How to make:
Cut 2 -
6" red hearts , 1 - 6" black heart, and
1 - 6" white heart from red construction.
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
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.
4:30-31 & 1 Peter 2:1 on pieces of paper and glue them to
the black heart.
"Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, brawling, slander along with every form of malice." "Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice, of all deceit, hypocrisy, envy and slander of every kind."
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)
We are new subscribers to your web site, and are SOOOOO excited to see the lessons and crafts you have available. We are a very small Sunday School class in a small town church, and are trying to spark a renewed interest in our program. I have printed numerous lessons and crafts to help us in that effort. Thanks to you and all your helpers for the work you do - it is certainly making our jobs easier in the effort to reach children with the Word of God. Sharon Ingrum
