The Lord’s Prayer Puppet Show
The Lord’s Prayer is a puppet show skit-with-a-song that elementary age children can use to lead prayer during worship.
Puppets and signs and hand motions add a new perspective to the Lord’s Prayer – a familiar prayer that has been a part of worship for a long time.
Theme: The Lord’s Prayer – This prayer may be familiar to everyone, but it never hurts to listen to it being read and watch it come to life in a fresh new way.
Characters: 1 Narrator & 4 puppeteers (your kids get to run a puppet, but they don’t have to say any lines) and 2 puppet curtain holders
Song: Jesus, Teach Us to Pray – this mellow song includes sign language
Performance time: 5 minutes Price
Here’s a The Lord’s Prayer Puppet Show script excerpt:
NOTE: You may use any version of the Lord’s prayer for this puppet show! The following is an excerpt from a modern version.
Narrator : Give us today our daily bread.
(One at a time, puppeteers hold up signs that reflect our daily needs – water, shelter, food, air, love, etc.; then all exit)
Narrator : Forgive us our sins.
(Puppet #1 appears and faces left so it doesn’t see Puppet #2 coming. Puppet #2 appears with a baseball bat, sneaks up behind Puppet #1 & bops it on the head. Puppet #1’s mouth drops open & both puppets freeze.)
Narrator: as we forgive those who sin against us.
(Puppet #1 turns and looks at Puppet #2 then runs over and gives Puppet #2 a big kiss; this time, Puppet #2’s mouth falls open & then both puppets exit.)
Narrator : Save us from the time of trial.
(The person who is holding the right end of the puppet curtain holds up a sign that says, “WRONG WAY”. All of the puppets appear and start walking toward the “WRONG WAY” sign.)
Narrator : and deliver us from evil.
(The person who is holding the left end of the puppet curtain waves their sign that says, “<—– THIS WAY”. All of the puppets turn around and walk toward the “THIS WAY” sign & then exit.)
(full skit and song are approximately 5 minutes long)
