Opening Prayer

Jesus, you are good and wise. I will praise you when I rise.
Jesus, hear this prayer I send. Bless my family and my friends.
Jesus, help my eyes to see all the good you send to me.
Jesus, help my ears to hear calls for help from far and near.
Jesus, help my feet to go in the way that You will show.
Jesus, help my hands to do all things loving, kind, and true.
Jesus, guard me through this day in all I do and all I say.


This Week's Memory Verse - Psalm 55:22

"Cast your cares on the Lord, and He will sustain you. He will never let the righteous fall."

I always learn scripture better when I can put music to it. If that sounds like you, too, you can use this music video to help you remember this awesome verse about where to take our worries and fears and the strength we get from our great God.

Cast Your Cares (Psalm 55:22)



  • Open up your family Bible or children's Bible and read this story together

"This Little Light Of Mine"
Unspoken - Start a Fire - with lyrics (2014)


Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), and because He is steadfast, who we are in Him remains the same regardless of circumstances. These statements remind us whose we are and who we are Because of who Jesus is.

Speak these statements together as a family.

Big picture


Lord, help me be a friend to the lonely and the shy

Help me give a helping hand instead of walking by

Help me always be a friend and say there's nothing to fear

Help me always be a friend and show Your love is near.
