Read 1 Kings 18:24 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: What would you have to do to get your favorite stuffed animal to grant you three wishes?
Parent Note: Our stuffed animals are not alive. There are no magic words, secret handshakes, or special dance moves that will get our stuffed animals to respond. Trying any of these methods to get them to respond to us would make us look as ridiculous as all of the prophets of Baal did on top of Mount Carmel as they tried to get their false god to light their sacrifice on fire.
Pray this out loud together:
Dear God, thank You for revealing Yourself.
You are a loving God who wants His people to know Him.
Please help me to trust that You are the Truth.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
God, we praise You for being the one true God.
Please help us to live our lives with a bold faith like Elijah.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
