Children's Prayers as Stories - Walking Along

This is a little story that incorporates prayer - for children of all ages. The setting is a village road that has a bridge over a creek. Perhaps it takes place on an ordinary summer day.

I find that it is much easier to learn about prayer, kindness and thoughtfulness by remembering a little story modeling these qualities.

Walking Along

Walking along
Feeling fine
Meeting with friends
Spending some time.

Crossing a bridge
Watching the ducks
Tossing in bread
They are catching with luck.

Walking along
There's a fallen bird nest
We lift it back up
To an empty branch crest.

Friends heading home
Play's over today
Feeling good, feeling fine
Caring in small ways.

While settling down
Thoughts lift into prayer
Soft blanket of night
Tucks in friends everywhere.

As a follow through activity after reading this little story with your children, have them draw pictures of the activity in each paragraph, and collate the pages into a little prayer book for them.

I invite you to join me in a daily world peace group cyber meditation. Click the article here to read about it.
