Read 1 Kings 18:33-35 out loud with your family.
Ask the following question and discuss the answer together as a family.
Q: Is it possible to start a fire with wet wood?
Parent Note: Yes, but it requires a bit of work. God is in control of the elements, and even though we wouldn’t be able to set fire to the altar after 12 buckets of water were dumped on it, that posed no challenge to God.
Read the following prayer out loud. Have your kids repeat after you:
God, we praise You for being the one true God.
Please help us to live our lives with a bold faith like Elijah.
We ask these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
