I will remember my baptismal covenant and listen to the Holy Ghost.
(Friend Aug 2006, suggestion # 3)

Help the children memorize the parts of the sacrament prayers (see D&C 20:77, 79) that constitute the covenant they are making:

  1. "willing to take upon them the name of thy Son,"
  2. "always remember him,"
  3. "keep his commandments which he has given them."

Write each numbered line on the board.
Divide the children into three groups and give each group a number that corresponds with a line to be memorized.
Hold up one, two, or three fingers to signal to the children to stand and recite their line.

After a couple of recitations, have the groups switch parts.

Switch again and begin erasing words from the board.
Switch again. Repeat until the standard is learned.
Refer to pages 2–3 in the Faith in God guidebook.
Remind the children that if we keep our part of the covenant, we are promised that we "will always have his Spirit to be with us."

Help the children find and read D&C 20:77, 79.
