Chapel of the Cross Faith & Family

Family Bible time for the week of October 11-17

Welcome to Chapel's Faith & Family!

This interactive Bible time is a great way for your family to gather around God's Word and read, listen, watch, sing, and do activities together that help you learn more about God's great love for you in Jesus.

The Lord's Prayer

What do you pray for?

One day while Jesus was praying to His Father in heaven, His disciples came to Him and asked Him to teach them how to pray. Jesus taught them to pray what we today call “The Lord’s Prayer.” This prayer of Jesus would become for them and for us both a special prayer and a model for prayer. Jesus then told a story to show His disciples how God wants us to come to Him in prayer. Finally, Jesus gave an example of how we are to approach God our Father trustingly, just as a child comes to his or her earthly father.

Opening Prayer

Father God, You have given us a great gift—the invitation to come to You at any time, in any place, in prayer. Thank You. In Jesus’ name we pray.

Talk about it

  • Why do you think Jesus' disciples asked Him how to pray?
  • Prayer is talking with God. When are some times you pray? What are some things that you pray for?
  • Does God always answer our prayers? How?

Share your thoughts on why Jesus' disciples asked Him to teach them how to pray. The disciples often saw Jesus praying to His Father in heaven. They knew that Jesus had a close relationship with His Father. He could teach them how to talk with God.

Share some times that you pray and the kinds of things that you pray for.

God always answers prayers. Sometimes He says yes. Sometimes He says no. Sometimes He says wait. God may not always give us what we want, but He always gives us what we need. The greatest thing we need is forgiveness and new life. He has given us this gift in Jesus!

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

Closing Prayer

Dear Jesus, thank You for being our Savior and rescuing us from our sinful condition. Help us to share Your love by serving our neighbor. In Your name we pray, Jesus. Amen.
