Read Daniel 6:26-27 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Daniel's faith inspired the king. How does his faith inspire you?
Parent Note: Daniel didn't stop worshiping God, even though it could have cost him his life. Daniel faced the lions with courage because he trusted God to save him. Daniel continuously did what was right, no matter what the consequences might be. Daniel's steadfast faith inspired the king to embrace the God of Israel as his own God.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You that you are powerful and good.
Thank You that you can protect us from anything we are afraid of.
Help us today to have the power, love, and self-control that You give to us.
We ask these things in in Jesus' name, Amen.
