I pray to Heavenly Father for strength to do what is right.
ENCOURAGE UNDERSTANDING (discussing prayer): Show the children a telephone or another form of communication. Discuss how it is used. Ask the children how we can communicate with Heavenly Father. Explain that just as we dial a number to talk to someone on the phone, we can pray to communicate with Heavenly Father; we can ask Him for strength to do what is right. Give each class a picture of a different kind of prayer (for example, personal prayer, family prayer, blessing on the food, or class prayer). Ask each class to show their picture to the other children and tell them what type of prayer is shown and when, where, and why this type of prayer is said.
ENCOURAGE APPLICATION (playing a game): Punch a small hole in the end of two empty aluminum cans, and connect the cans with a string. Pull the string tight, and let the children take turns quietly saying into one can something they could pray to Heavenly Father for as they try to do what is right (for example, to tell the truth, to be reverent, or to be kind). Let another child listen in the other can. Share (or ask a child to share) an experience when Heavenly Father has given you strength to do what is right. Testify that Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers and will give us strength to do what is right.
