1. Primary 4 Lesson Cards

2. Lesson Helps on

3. On the chalkboard write two headings.  On one side of the chalkboard write, "Enos asked of God" and on the other side write "God Said".  Have the class find in the chapter the things Enos asked of God.  Write on the chalkboard the things they find.  Then have them find the things God said.  Write them on the chalkboard too.  Ask everyone why they think Heavenly Father. answered Enos' prayer.

4. Ask a man in your ward to come to your class dressed as "Enos".  Have him pretend to be hunting for wild beasts. Then he sees the children and starts to tell them how he has been thinking about the words of his father Jacob and how he is concerned for the welfare of his soul, and feels the need to repent, etc. Then have him ask the children if they could help show him how to pray.

5. Check your church library to see if they have this video -  Heavenly Father answers prayers (2:42 min)

6. Prayer Handout Ideas

7. You could have your class make prayer rocks and give them the following poem.

8. I think after reading and telling the story of Enos, we are going to focus on the concept of praying for others. This is always a good one to learn early, and as an adult I find I could use a reminder.  Some things we might cover:  asking the children who they think prays for them, asking who they pray for, asking what the effect is of praying for others (both parties benefit and receive blessings), sharing a personal example from my life, looking up places in the scriptures when someone prayed for someone else, especially Jesus in 3 Nephi, sharing a current conference talk from President Hinckley in which he mentioned praying for the Church, making "Prayer in Progress" door hangers or something like that.  (Idea shared by Kari Hickman / ga02262008)

    Ericka, Thank you so much for the power point presentations. Both my mom and I use these to teach our primary classes. I always display mine on my iPad and wirelessly remote control it with my iPhone. My dad helps my mom put the presentation on their iPad each weekend. My companion teacher in our Valiant 10 class uses his laptop to display the .pptx slides on the weeks where he teaches. Thanks so much for your service!!!

    Ericka, We appreciate you adding the .wav audio files to the slides with audio. It saves us lots of steps to make it work on our iPads. The only modification we have to make this week is to turn off the transitions on the first slide. After our modifications, the music text just appears and the audio starts playing automajically. For some reason the iPad can never handle the flowing text that is delivered line by line during the song on the first slide. All other features appear to work pretty well. Just wanted to let you know that we look forward to your slide shows every week and we are a huge fan of your work. Thanks again!!!

    Additional information for other folks reading my comments: After I download the slide deck (.ppt) to my computer, I upload it to The slide deck is automatically converted to keynote format and pushed down to the iPad from iCloud. Another advantage of the iPad is that it handle a wider viewing angle than most laptops since you can see the screen from almost any angle in the room. The downside is that the screen is smaller than most laptops since its only 10inch. Most weeks I also download the cooresponding Book of Mormon scripture story video off of and show it to the class since it goes well with the presentation.,4945,8896-1- 4473-2,00.html
