Children’s Sermon on Romans 1:8-10 – Praying for Christians Around the World

Children’s Sermon on Romans 1:8-10 – Praying for Christians Around the World

Use this children’s sermon on Romans 1 to teach kids to pray for other Christians.


Scripture: Romans 1


Needed: a map of the world (


Children’s Sermon: Ask students, Do you think there are only a few Christians in the world or lots of Christians in the world?


(Show your map of the world.) There are Christians in every country of the world. They speak different languages, have different cultures, and may even look different from us, but they all believe in Jesus.


Why do you think it’s important for us to remember that there are other Christians in the world?


(Read Romans 1:8-10, quoted here in the NIV:)


“First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world. God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times…”


The Apostle Paul, who wrote the letter to the Romans, says he does two things when he thinks about the Christians in Rome. These are Christians he’s never met before. He says he thanks God for them, and he prays for them.


It’s important for us to thank God for other Christians because knowing that there are other people who believe in Jesus tells us we’re not alone. We belong to a big family of Christian believers.


And we should pray for other Christians, both Christians we’ve met and Christians we haven’t met, asking God to keep them strong in their faith. And we can trust that they’re praying for us too!


Let’s pray for those other Christians now.


Closing Prayer: Lord Jesus, we’re happy that You have followers not only in our town and in our country but all the way around the world. Help us to remember that we’re not alone in worshiping You. And we pray for all those other Christians now that they will stay strong in following You. Amen.
