Parents, today your child learned that the church prays for others and their needs. After Herod put Peter in prison, church friends prayed for Peter’s safety. How does your family pray for people and their needs?
“This is our hope when our prayers go ‘unanswered.’ The reality is there are no unanswered prayers. A ‘no’ now doesn’t mean a ‘no’ forever. Courtney Reissig writes “There Are No Unanswered Prayers” here: https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/article/there-are-no-unanswered-prayers/
Our Daily Bible Reading is such an incredible reminder of restoration. After all that Job faced, God still chose to restore him. You can find our reading schedule on the One Conversation page.
Take it Further: Check out “People Prayed for Peter” in the Bible Studies For Life section of the Lifeway Kids app. You can download this FREE app onto your devices and allow your child deeper access to the lessons each week through games and activities.
In the game “Which one of these things is not like the other,” the child looks at three or four things and has to pick the one that stands out as different. In a much more serious way, Christians are to stand out from their culture. We live in the culture, but we also stand apart from it.
Take a walk together today and say the Unit Verse out load together. Talk about how praying for the needs of others is a way to worship God. Ask them what they would like to pray about and do it together.
