Search Ponder and Pray Word Search

I thought of a fun ideas that would be just perfect for the song — a Search Ponder and Pray Word Search!

It easily ties in the meaning of “searching” and can help you pull in a spiritual message on not just simply reading through the words of the scriptures but looking for the meaning hidden on each page and how they can relate to our lives!

*Downloads are available at the bottom of the post following the lesson plan directions included within this post.*

How to Play this Word Search Game:

– Sing Search, Ponder, and Pray together.

– Post the word search, and ask the children if they can find one of the keywords from the song in the word search. In Junior Primary, if they need help, sing the first phrase and add extra emphasis on the keywords, then ask them to look for the hidden words singing it more than once, if necessary.

“I LOVE to READ the holy SCRIPTURES…”

– I’d recommend just hunting for the simple hidden words in Junior Primary and hunt for the whole list in Senior Primary including the words that are backwards and on an angle!

– Sing through the song again after each time you find a new hidden word.

Extension Activities:

– Skip singing the keywords you’ve found using silent singing.

– Add a simple action in place of the hidden words, such as a clap, snap, dab, stomp, or whatever the children choose! You might just stick with one or two actions so it is not overly complicated.

– Compete with one side of the room singing the keywords and the other side singing all the non keywords throughout the song.

– Connect the word search with the spiritual searching we are called to do in this song. Share ideas and challenge the children to take the time to really search their scriptures!

  1. Hi! I tried this today in Singing Time and the kids had fun with it, but ran into a couple issues. The printable download doesn’t quite the example in the post (there is no grow or true). In the printable answer key it shows “time” but the spacing of the letters on the printable makes it not work.

    • Thanks so much for letting me know!! You’re right, it looks like the wrong (older) word search was in the post! I’ve updated the file link. So sorry about that.
