Read Acts 2:1-4 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Why didn't the disciples just go out and start telling people about Jesus?
Parent Note: Sometimes action without an understanding of how that action will impact the overall goal can be a bad idea. Prayer can open our minds, hearts, and ears to what the Lord is leading us to do. If He has asked us to do something, He will help us figure out how to accomplish it.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for the gift of Your Holy Spirit.
I know that You are always with me.
Please help me to live a life led by the Holy Spirit.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
