Daniel’s Example of Prayer

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers (1 Timothy 4:12).

  1. Daniel was excited. He was flying on an airplane to visit his grandparents in Peru. They weren’t members of the Church, but he loved them and they loved him.

  2. When Daniel got to Peru, he was happy to see his grandparents. He also was a little homesick. Things were different in Peru than at home in Spain. But he knew one thing could be the same.

  3. Can we have prayer before bedtime?

  4. Why do you want to pray?

    Because Jesus told us to.

    OK. How do you pray?

  5. We need to kneel down, bow our heads, and close our eyes.

  6. We can thank Heavenly Father for our blessings and ask Him to help us.

  7. Daniel’s grandparents were so impressed that they prayed every morning and night during Daniel’s visit.

  8. Daniel felt happy when he prayed with his grandparents. He knew Heavenly Father was happy too.
