Jesus Christ prayed to His Heavenly Father and using the model of the Lord’s prayer He taught His disciples how to pray. Throughout the Bible there are numerous examples of people praying to God, asking for His blessing and Devine wisdom, direction, and intervention. Prayer is vital to the success of your Sunday School class.
As Sunday School leaders we need to spend time in prayer each week. Pray for every member and prospect in your class by name every week. Contact every member and prospect and ask them how you can pray for them. Pray for specific needs and concerns in their lives. Ask God to bring new people to your class that need to be involved in church. Pray for direction as you reach out and minister to prospects and members. Ask God to give you wisdom as you prepare to teach each week. Ask Him to show you how the lesson can be applied to the lives of those in your class. Pray that you can wisely use the Sunday School time to teach the lesson and minister to the needs of those in the class. Pray that God will richly bless your efforts and use the lesson to help those in your class to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Pray for more leaders to step up to the plate and take the responsibility of being a Teacher Apprentice, a Reaching Leader, or a Ministry Leader.
