“Prayer,” Friend, Jan 2005, 24–25

Prayer is one of Heavenly Father’s great blessings to us. We are able to speak directly to Him—the great God of Heaven—anytime, anywhere.

There are many different kinds of prayer and many different times when people often say a prayer. Pictured here are some of them for you to color. As you color each picture, write underneath it what kind of prayer it is. For example, the first picture represents blessing the sacrament. Then talk with your family about who may offer each kind of prayer, what the person offering it might pray about, and when the prayer is offered.

Hang the colored pictures where you will see them often to remind you of the marvelous blessing of prayer.

What should I know about prayer?

Fill in the areas containing a dot with one color, then fill in the rest of the areas with different colors.

Russell M. Nelson, “What should I know about prayer?,” Friend, Mar 2009, 31

From “Sweet Power of Prayer,” Ensign, May 2003, 7.

Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shares some of his thoughts on this subject.

We may pray to Him any time.

Prophets have long told us to pray humbly and frequently.

Prayers can be offered even in silence. One can think a prayer.

A loving Father in Heaven wants to hear from His children. Through prayer, we can show our love for God.

We pray privately, with our families regularly, at mealtime, and in daily activities.

Jesus revealed that we pray to a wise Father who knows what things we have need of, before we ask Him.
