August 10 // God helps us help others.

Read Daniel 6:14 out loud with your family.

 

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

 

Q: Have you ever wanted to help someone but didn’t know how to help? 

 

Parent Note: The king, as powerful as he was, couldn’t figure out a way to keep Daniel out of the lions’ den. There was nothing he could do. When we find ourselves in situations in which we don’t know how to help someone in need, all we need to do is pray. We can pray for God to fix the situation, or we can pray for God to give us wisdom and direction on how to help the person. God will always help us help others. 

 

FAMILY PRAYER:

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

 

Dear God, thank You for helping me.
I know that You are there for me even before I ask.
Please help me to be there for others, the way that You are there for me.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen
