Read John 14:14 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Do you believe that God will answer your prayers?
Parent Note: Sometimes God answers our prayers with “yes”, “no”, or “not right now”. Nehemiah asked God for help, and God answered with a yes. Even if we don’t get the answer we want, we can trust that He knows best.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord, thank You that prayer works.
Thank You for the Bible and its many examples of answered prayers.
Help us to believe and to build a strong prayer life like Nehemiah.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
