July 10 // Facing persecution.

Read Esther 2:10 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Have your ever had to keep a secret?

 

Parent Note: The Jews were living as exiles in Persia, and many of the Persians hated Jewish people. It would have been dangerous for the king to find out that Esther was Jewish, so Mordecai encouraged her to stay quiet. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

Dear Lord, thank You for protecting me.
Please help me to have courage like Queen Esther.
In Jesus’s name, amen.
