ACTIVITY: Model Practice



What You Do

Ask your child, “What is something you know how to do that I don’t? I want you to model for me how to do that!” (Note: If they can’t think of anything, try asking them what they can do better than you.)
Spend some time letting your child model their knowledge to you. Maybe it’s riding a skateboard, kicking a soccer ball, or filming a short movie using their device. Whatever they tell you to do, follow their instructions.
Say, “You were an awesome model for me! Learning how to do new things takes practice.”
If time allows, model something for them, such as fixing or replacing something in your home, doing a push-up with correct form, or calligraphy. I can be anything they can mimic based on your model.

Talk about the Bible Story

Jesus told a prayer to His disciples that we can read in Luke 11. (Take time to read Luke 11:2-4 together.)
How is Jesus’ prayer a model for us today? (It shows us how we can pray to God.)
What kinds of things do we normally pray about?
Did you notice anything in Jesus’ prayer that we sometimes forget to pray about?
If God knows everything already, why do we need to pray?
Is there a right or wrong way to pray?
What can you do if you don’t feel like praying, or if you don’t know what to say to God? (talk to Him like you’d talk a friend; ask someone to pray with you)


Use this prayer as a guide, either after your discussion or right before bed tonight:

“God, we are so thankful that You hear our prayers. We are thankful that we can pray to You anytime, anywhere, and about anything. Thank You for the example Jesus gave to the disciples, which we can practice today. We can praise You. We can ask for the things we need each day. We can ask You for forgiveness, and ask for Your help as we choose to forgive others. Please help us to practice talking to You every day. It’s in Jesus’ name we pray, amen.”
