Tuesday: Struggle

Pray: Begin by making the sign of the cross and calling upon God’s name.

From God to us, from death to life, from me to you …in the name of the Father, and of the Son + and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Almighty God, we come to you to hear your promise. Open our hearts, by the power of your Spirit, that we may trust and believe that you are at work among us, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Listen: Listen carefully as these verses from the Bible are read aloud.

Acts 2:42-43
[The new believers] spent their time learning from the apostles, and they were like family to each other. They also broke bread and prayed together. Everyone was amazed by the many miracles and wonders that the apostles worked. (CEV)

Engage: Talk about the Bible by having parents respond to children’s questions.

Child: What are  the kind of amazing things that the apostles did by the power of God? Do you believe that God still does miracles?

Child: Do we need to see miracles in order to believe in God?

Affirm: Pray for God to put his Word into action in your daily life.

Holy God, we know that you have the power to do amazing things, but our faith rests in your Word. Open our eyes to see the big things and the small things you do for us each day, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Have each person in the family bless one another with these words.

May you experience the amazing goodness of God at work in your life. Amen.
