Teach Help Me, Dear Father in singing time using my lesson plan that caters to Home Centered or virtual!

Camille's Primary Ideas: Help Me, Dear Father singing time idea

Attention Getter

To introduce Help Me, Dear Father, display a picture of the Savior on the cross.  Share the following passage with your primary:

Near the time when Jesus would be crucified, the soldiers did unkind things to him. They hit him, whipped him, spat on him, put a crown of thorns on his head, and called him names.  Then the soldiers led Jesus to a hillside called Calvary and nailed him to a cross.  Jesus wasn’t angry with the soldiers for what they did to him.  He said, “Father, forgive them; for they. know not what they do…”

Jesus was the greatest example of forgiveness.  He taught us to pray and to ask “Help me dear Father” (A Children’s Songbook Companion p. 134).

This fun video puppets teaches puts into action the meaning of Help Me, Dear Father:

The May 2020 Friend suggests reading the story Sister Squabble found HERE.  Then to cut out paper hearts and create love notes for your family members.  Hide them where your family will find them all week.

Camille's Primary Ideas: I Will Be Valiant singing time idea from the Friend

Bear testimony that we should try to be more forgiving to those who are unkind to us.  Challenge the primary to try to repent of things they do wrong.

I thought it might also be fun to have the bells play the ALTO notes of Help Me, Dear Father.  So I have this bell chart available in my Resource Library as well:

If you are unsure how to use handbells in singing time, I have a post HERE with lots of details!

Make sure to check out my lesson plan for Help Me, Dear Father that likens repentance and forgiveness to bandages HERE.  It’s geared more toward in person singing time.

  1. This song isn’t listed in your resource library. I went to print bandages and can’t find them. I’m just subbing today, so I won’t need them after today, but just FYI for future! Thanks for all you do. 🙂

    1. Hi Amy!

      So sorry you couldn’t find them! But they are there, under Song Title > Help Me, Dear Father. Sometimes if you scroll down too far (on mobile) you land under the Category Title section and the item you are looking for will appear to not be under the “H” section. I hope that clarifies. Thanks for commenting!
