Opening Prayer

Oh Lord, as each day starts anew, I know all things are made by You

You make the clouds and gentle rain. You make the sun come out again.

You make the rainbow in the sky, and the birds that fly up high.

You make the flowers and every tree. Thank You, God, for blessing me.

This Week's Memory Verse - Philippians 4:6-7

"Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

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 how to approach moments of anxiety.

Do Not Be Anxious (Philippians 4:6-7)

Show me Your Ways
MercyMe - Even If (Official Lyric Video)


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


Now, before I run to play, let me not forget to pray

To God who kept me through the night and woke me with the morning light

Help me, Lord, to love Thee more than I have ever loved before

In my work and in my play, be Thou with me through the day

Fun Family Game Suggestion - Play Battleship!

In Battleship, we can only guess where the ships are on the other side because we can’t see them. We can try to guess the pattern, but there is a lot of luck involved. If only we could see from up above!

But when it comes to our lives, God sees “from above” and knows everything. He sees our lives. He sees all the details of everything in this world, how all the details relate to each other, and how it all works out. He has a plan for how it will all work together. He doesn’t have to guess; He has a plan! If we follow Him, we won’t be sunk—we will stay afloat and sail to where He wants to take us!
