This past weekend, we chatted with the elementary age children about how God is our provider based on the scriptures of Exodus 15 – 16.
During the worship response time, we talked about how even though God is big, He cares about the small details of our life. We gave all the children slips of paper and had them think about an area of their life where they needed prayer. Some didn’t take it seriously, but others did.
Here are the results that I got.
“I want to pray for my MAP test for me to get a good grade”
“I pray that Northern California stay safe”
“I pray for everyone to stay safe”
“I want got to know”
“Pray for my aunt”
“For everyone to be safe and love by God”
“I want an amazing Christmas”
Throw in a few for a dog, and surprised a lot of them want robots (which shows that they haven’t seen the Terminator movies).
One of the joys of Kidmin is that children surprise me every week. They are not supposed to be mature; then you see great maturity. I love that some of them thought past their needs and wanted, and prayed for the safety of others.
I am very proud of these special ones, and I pray for their needs (and wants). Lord hear their prayers.
