Christian Songs for Kids - Whisper a Prayer.

Previously I talked about not being able to find many powerpoint presentations to illustrate Christian Songs for Kids.


I had got to the point where I was making my own to use in our Church, Sunday School and an After School Bible Club our church runs in a nearby primary school each Monday.


NOW

Each month this year I am going to share 1 or 2 songs with you 
providing a 

Visual 
(Powerpoint or Picture or details of how you can make it) 

Words   
(chords also available)

Recording  
(to learn the song) 

Then if you would like to download the visual of the song there will be a link provided to my creation, or I will direct you to where else you can find it.   

Also don't forget you can go to the side bar on the right and sign up for an email reminder of my posts. Then you will know when the next song is posted.



This month I am taking the theme of


 PRAYER

I thoroughly believe we should teach and encourage children to pray.


The song I have chosen is 


 WHISPER A PRAYER

I first got familiar with this song when I got involved in Child Evangelism Fellowship and had a Good News Club in our home before we even had any children ourselves.

I used to have an old circular visual for it (the template was provided by CEF) where there was a circle of card behind another circle which had a sector cut out of it at the top and the two cards were held together by a pin.  The words "Whisper a prayer in"  were written on the front card and also the words "to keep your heart in tune" and as you sang the song you rotated the back circle so that a picture of a rising sun appeared for "morning", a picture of a full sun appeared for "noon" and a picture of a moon came up for "evening".

Recently I designed & made a new (slightly different) visual for it because my old one was so tattered. 



VISUAL



To See a Tutorial of how this visual was made click on the picture above and you will be taken to my other site The Ark Page containing tutorials and other resources for Kids Work.
 

I like to use this song to settle the children down to be ready to pray.

But it can also be used to teach the children about praying regularly each day and linked in with the story of Daniel.





WORDS

WHISPER A PRAYER

Whisper a prayer in the morning
Whisper a prayer at noon
Whisper a prayer in the evening
To keep your heart in tune.


God answers prayer in the morning
God answers prayer at noon
God answers prayer in the evening
So keep your heart in tune.




ACTIONS

We usually sing this one reverently & quietly without any actions.

RECORDING

My husband likes to experiment with recording music so at different times he has made some recordings for kids songs for me and this is one he made  -  you won't recognize the voices in the recording but you might be able to guess who they belong to.





Special "Thank You" to my husband Fred who looks after the Recordings and the Chords


I Hope you enjoy the song and this is a help to you.


Notes:
As far as I can see the author of this song is listed as anonymous for further details 
see here
I did find some info on an arranger of the music see here

If anyone has any further info on this song please let me know.

  7. A resource that needs to be in every home with young children. They learn from example. I remember praying with my mom as a small child and I did it with all our children too. A great share, thanks Sandra!
