Johnny Appleseed Prayer

The delightful Johnny Appleseed Prayer

is featured on this Children's Prayer Page.


God gives parents the responsibility to teach their children to pray. Whether you have started praying with your children or not, this page will give you ideas on how to bring God into your daily life.

This Johnny Appleseed lighthearted prayer teaches thankfulness to God. It is a great prayer for parents who are just beginning to pray with their children - or - for parents who have an established routine of prayer.

Johnny Appleseed was a real man. His name was John Chapman. He will be forever known as Johnny Appleseed - the man who loved to plant apple seeds!

As a former teacher, I noticed that children seem to be drawn like a magnet to this entertaining tale.

I found that his story opened up all kinds of fun activities.

A Fun Idea

Consider taking a trip to the library and finding a book on Johnny Appleseed. Make a special reading time and end the story with some yummy apple desserts. (You may even want your children to help you make the desserts!)

Make a game:

Next, take an apple shape and red construction paper and make 18 red paper apples. On 9 of the apples put one of the fruit of the spirit. Then the next 9 apples repeat the process. You can use them to play a version of the game of concentration. You put the apples on a table word side down. The first person chooses two apples and turns them over, if the apples have the same fruit of the spirit, the person gets to keep them. If it does not, the player turns them back over, and it is the next player's turn. Another version is making double the apples. There will be 36 apples but still only 9 fruit of the spirit.

The Johnny Appleseed Prayer is a wonderful prayer to pray before meals.

The Johnny Appleseed Prayer Song

Oh, the Lord's been good to me,

And so I thank the Lord,

For giving me the things I need,

The sun, the rain, and the apple seed

The Lord's been good to me.

If you do not know the tune to the song, then you can listen to it.
