July 26 // God is with us in suffering.

Read Jeremiah 38:6 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Has someone ever caused you pain?

 

Parent Note: This doesn't have to mean physical pain; it can refer to emotional pain. Remind your child that when this happens, they are not alone. God is always with us; He sees our suffering. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for always being with me.
I know that You love me, and never leave my side.
Please help me feel comforted when I’m facing trouble.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
