October 9 // Power over death.

Read John 11:11 out loud with your family.


Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.


Q: Would you believe a friend's claim that she could run a mile in under a minute? 


Parent Note: To our human minds, something like this is impossible. We are limited by our imaginations and understanding of life and nature, but God can do much more than we can think or imagine. Jesus knew that He could bring Lazarus back to life. This display of power convinced even more people to believe that Jesus was the Messiah. 



Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:


Dear God, thank You for displaying Your power so that we would believe.
I know that You can do all things, and I can do all things through You.
Please help me to have faith in You, even when things seem impossible.
We ask this in Jesus’s name, Amen.
