Read Luke 9:32 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Have you ever fallen asleep before midnight on New Year's Eve?
Parent Note: The purpose of staying up is to be awake at the very moment the new year begins. Jesus had just revealed the purpose of His life to the disciples and they fell asleep.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear God, thank You for what You have done in Jesus.
I know that he came with the purpose to save the world.
Help me to carry out Your purpose for my life.
We ask these things in Jesus' name, Amen.
