Prayer and Scripture Study: “I Obey Jesus Christ Because I Love Him”

These two gospel habits — prayer and scripture study — go together beautifully. “When we want to speak to God, we pray. And when we want Him to speak to us, we search the scriptures . . . His words.” (Elder Robert D. Hales, Ensign, Nov. 2006, 26-27)

PRAYER: Instead of four steps, consider the FIVE steps of prayer. Read more here, with a downloadable handout to use in your Sharing Time lesson.

SCRIPTURE STUDY is an ideal way to address boredom as well as give the children the gift of an early start to this lifelong gospel habit. Read “Scriptures in Primary: Raising the Bar and Addressing the Boredom Challenge.”

Building these habits in children’s early years will pay rich benefits throughout their lives, as they become more Christlike by talking to God (prayer) and listening to Him (scripture study).
