Read Judges 13:3 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: After blowing out the candles on your birthday cake and making a wish, has your wish ever come true?
Parent Note: While God is not to be treated like a genie or a fairy godmother who grants us wishes, He does hear all of our prayers. Even better than that, He knows exactly what we need before we even know it. We should always feel comfortable coming to God with everything, including our wants and desires. He will either bless us with what we asked for, or He will lead us to something better.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, thank You for giving me what I need
You are a thoughtful Father who cares for His children
Please help me to remember that I can talk to You about anything
In Jesus’s name, amen
