Junior Level

Intro:
Our Sunday school topic for today focuses on the importance of our heartfelt  prayers spoken to God. He wants to hear from us and we must lean on Him for help and guidance.Let us therefore pray often and daily for we know this pleases  Him and helps us to develop a closer relationship with our Heavenly Father. Not only in times of trouble but in times of praise . May our prayers be lifted up in all matters to the One who watches over us.
