➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N


Ask children the following question:


What time is it right now? (Allow children to search for a watch, clock, or mobile device to find the answer.)


After children have completed the activity, discuss the following:


1) When you wanted to know what time it was, did you just sit still and do nothing? Or did you look around for something? (Discuss)


2) What did you look for? Where did you go? (Looked for a clock)


3) Why did you look for a clock? (Because we know the clock can tell us the time!)


4) Can a clock teach us about Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ? (No)


5) If we want to learn about Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, what should we look around for? Who should we go to? (Study the scriptures, study the teachings of the prophets, watch general conferences, pray to Heavenly Father, etc.)


Explain: Just like we go to the clock to see what time it is, we can go to Heavenly Father in prayer when we have an important question! In the scriptures, Heavenly Father has told us lots of times to “ask,” and we will receive.
