The Lord’s Prayer (part 3) – this time with props

(see also our other posts on The Lord’s Prayer: part 1 – I cannot say; part 2 – a fridge magnet memory verse; part 3 – review and recall)

I can’t remember where we found this idea from – it was from one of the many books we have looked at over the years. We made a note of the ideas and put it aside for the right time to use it.

The idea is to have objects to focus the group’s minds on each phrase of the Lord’s Prayer. These are the objects we used, but you may wish to make some substitutions to make it more relevant to the version of the prayer that your group is familiar with.


Our Father – a picture of a father and child

in heaven – a model of the solar system

hallowed be your name – a printed picture of hands raised in worship

your kingdom come – a national flag (we had a French one)

your will be done – a recent newspaper

on earth as in heaven – a globe of the earth

give us today our daily bread – a loaf of bread

forgive us our sins, as we forgive those that sin against us – a cross

Save us from the time of trial – a toy judge’s gavel

and deliver us from evil – a book entitled “The Two World Wars”

For the kingdom – a paper crown

the power – a picture of parliament

and the glory are yours –  an “Oscar” statuette

Now and forever. Amen – a stopped clock.
