A Child’s Prayer Flip Chart & Lyrics

I love the song A Child’s Prayer, it’s one of my very favorite Primary songs! For this song, I make a special A Child’s Prayer flip chart that helps me lead the two separate parts of the song a little easier.

It’s such a beautiful song with the separate parts that A Child’s Prayer (archives) is a fun song to teach. Plus, it reminds the children that a loving Heavenly Father does hear and answer their prayers.

A Child’s Prayer Flip Chart

In the A Child’s Prayer Flip Chart (master list!) there are 4 pages – 2 pages for each of the two verses. The 1st verse has a lot more words than the second verse, but to cover the pacing of the song it works best to have the same number of pages for each verse / part so you can flip both parts at the same time.

Free printable A Child's Prayer flip chart (4 options!) and lyrics guide to help you teach this beautiful LDS Primary Song for Music Leaders in Singing Time.

This year, we’ll be splitting the song with Senior Primary singing the second verse and Junior Primary singing the 1st verse when the song comes together during the 3rd verse with parts. You could also split and have the teachers sing or a small group from the Primary.

A Child’s Prayer Lyrics

This song is published in the Children’s Songbook Page #12
You can find A Child’s Prayer sheet music here.

First Verse:
Heavenly Father, are you really there?
And do you hear and answer every child’s prayer?
Some say that Heaven is far away,
But I feel it close around me as I pray.
Heavenly Father I remember now
Something that Jesus told disciples long ago
“Suffer the children to come to me”
Father in prayer I’m coming now to thee.

Second Verse:
Pray, he is there.
Speak, he is listening.
You are his child.
His love now surrounds you.
He hears your prayer.
He loves the children.
Of Such is the kingdom,
The kingdom of heav’n.

Singing Time Printable

I highly recommend printing all 4 pages of this A Child’s Prayer flip chart. Then, put the 2-pages for the first verse facing outward in a single sheet protector.

Do the same for the second verse. Don’t use my traditional flip chart split rings method for this song – you’re going to want these pages separate!

When it’s time to teach the third verse through that combines the two parts – ask another leader or a teacher to help the first few practice times through the song so they can help direct and sing.

This will make it easier for the kids to follow along. Each of the leaders can hold the appropriate sheet protector with the verse flip chart. After a few times through, you can open it up to have the Primary children help be your conductors – they’ll love this!

  1. Thank you so much for all of your work in creating fabulous helps for music in primary. I so much appreciate it. I love the slideshow option you have added. It makes it so easy to just hook up my phone to the tv at the church to display the words that way and just have up while we do things with our hands. So wonderful!!
    I do have one request. On the slideshow for A Child’s Prayer, could you make a 5th and 6th page somehow? One that shows both verses at the same time. I know this is a lot more words crammed on to one page, but I think it would be beneficial to be able to show the words on the tv for the 3rd verse.
    Thank you again for all of your wonderful work!
