We have created this 25 page Powerpoint presentation to help walk through the parts of the Prayer Covenant along with the verses. Fill free to use this Powerpoint in your teaching, workshops and training as together we encourage God’s people to pray through the prayer covenant around the world. Please click below to download.
We all know how much easier it is for children to memorize passages when put to music. The Prayer Covenant Songs allow the children to sing-along as they learn the prayer. Song one teaches the first five themes and Song two the latter five themes of the prayer. Both are available on iTunes. Use these songs to enhance both worship and teaching of the Prayer Covenant.

Play It Games includes a fun game for each of the 10 prayer lessons. Children have fun playing the game then have an “aha” moment when they personally discover the connection between the game and the prayer principle. Step-by-step instructions for each game and follow up questions that lead to personal discovery are included.
Play It Games are now included in the 3rd edition of The Prayer Covenant for Children book! Creation to Christ Hand Motions instructions for children are also included in this free download.
