National Day of Prayer: Lord's Prayer Coloring Pages

Prayers have a long history in America. The earliest national prayers date back to the First Continental Congress in 1775. In 1952, both houses of Congress called on President Harry S. Truman to set aside a National Day of Prayer each year. In 1988, Congress and President Ronald Reagan signed an act declaring the National Day of Prayer to fall on the first Thursday of May.

Here are some coloring pages we’ve created for the Lord's Prayer. Each coloring page has a portion of the Lord's Prayer—a total of five pages. There is a set of coloring pages for the New International Version and a separate set for the King James Version.  If you use a different Bible version than the ones given, feel free to cut off or white out the verse and replace it with the version you prefer. Each coloring page shows a picture of a Bible story or children learning about God's Word. Best of all, each set of five coloring pages is just $1.99 for the set!

You may want to make a coloring booklet for each child with all five coloring pages stapled together. At the end of your lesson time, your students will have a booklet with the entire Lord's Prayer—a fun keepsake reminder of their Bible lesson.

If you’d like to take a look at classroom decorations, "God Bless the USA" wristbands, bookmarks, or the Kingdom of Son Vacation Bible School program, visit Shop VBS for more information and to order your Starter Kits. Kingdom of the Son  is a complete VBS that teaches your students the Lord's Prayer as the children travel on a prayer safari.

You have our permission to copy these coloring pages for your ministry program. May God bless you as you prepare to teach children (and their families) about how to talk to God in prayer!
