Hymn

Did You Think to Pray? | Hymn #140

1. Ere you left your room this morning,
Did you think to pray?
In the name of Christ, our Savior,
Did you sue for loving favor
As a shield today?

(Chorus)

Oh, how praying rests the weary!
Prayer will change the night to day.
So, when life gets dark and dreary,
Don’t forget to pray.

2. When your heart was filled with anger,
Did you think to pray?
Did you plead for grace, my brother,
That you might forgive another
Who had crossed your way?

(Chorus)

3. When sore trials came upon you,
Did you think to pray?
When your soul was full of sorrow,
Balm of Gilead did you borrow
At the gates of day?

(Chorus)

Lesson

 

*Suitable for All Ages*

Begin the lesson by watching the following video. Before you play it, ask everyone to ponder what forgiveness means to them. For younger children, this video may be more appropriate.

Ask: What does this video teach us about forgiveness?

Read aloud: Forgiveness is a commandment from God. Jesus Christ told us that we are “required to forgive all men.” (D&C 64:10)

With the help of God, we overcome feelings of anger, bitterness, hatred, and revenge when we forgive. We experience peace and freedom when we forgive, even someone does not accept our forgiveness. However, it can be hard to forgive.

Ask: What are some things that hold us back from forgiving others?

Share any personal experiences about a time you forgave or were forgiven, and then invite others to do the same.

Ask: What are some ways we can increase our ability to forgive others?

Finish the lesson by bearing your testimony of forgiveness.

FHE Game / ActivityActivity

Backwards Obstacle Course

Create an obstacle course in an open area in your home. Have everyone complete the obstacle course backwards once. Keep time. Then have everyone complete the obstacle course facing forward. After you’re done, discuss how forgiveness is like facing forward and keeping our eyes on the future, rather than harboring negative feelings about the past.
