My five year old son came home from Primary yesterday with this poster (from the September 2015 Ensign).
I thought this poster would make a great focus for a Family Home Evening lesson, so Zach and I prepared and shared a lesson to go with it tonight.
Show the video You’re Never Alone: A disciple of Jesus Christ, Elaine S. Dalton, shares how her experience of running in the Boston Marathon taught her about prayer and the strength we can receive from God. She was comforted by the words, “I am thy God and will still give thee aid. I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand.”
Discuss how we can offer prayers at anytime of need, in addition to daily morning and evening prayers.
Sing “How Firm a Foundation” vs. 1 and 3 (Hymns, 85) and review our family theme for 2015
Discuss the following quotes from President Henry B. Eyring.
“Heavenly Father hears your prayers. He loves you. He knows your name.” (“Continuing Revelation”. October 2014 General Conference).
“God the Father lives, loves us, and hears our every prayer.” (“Priesthood and Personal Prayer”. April 2015 General Conference).
