Read Ephesians 6:17 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: If you had to fight a dragon, what kind of weapon would you choose?
Parent Note: Using the Word of God as a weapon sounds like a tactical error. But it is the most powerful weapon God has given us. It shows us the heart of God, which gives us direction in how to live our lives. Living our lives for God is the fastest, surest way to defeat our enemy.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
Dear Lord Jesus, please help us to understand the necessity of being prepared for battle against an enemy who hated you before he ever hated us.
We know that Satan seeks to destroy, but we thank you for the weapons of your Word, your righteousness, your power, and your truth that guard and protect us.
We pray this in Jesus’ name, Amen.
