Hi Journey Kids parents!
It’s amazing how much practical wisdom the Book of James holds. If you haven’t read it before, or even if it’s been awhile, give it a read—it’s only 5 chapters. During this week’s family worship lesson, we’ll be looking at the last chapter of James and learning about the importance of praying for each other.
When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. (You can access the YouTube playlist here.) It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family. And don’t forget to participate in the worship videos from Yancy afterwards—one song is for older kids and one is for younger kids.
Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:
Bible Story: Pray for One Another (James 5:13-20)
Big Idea: God calls us to share our struggles with one another and to pray for each other.
Memory Verse: “So confess your sins to one another. Pray for one another so that you might be healed. The prayer of a godly person is powerful. Things happen because of it.” James 3:5 (NIrV)
After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:
Speaking of praying for one another, if there’s any way I can be praying for you or your family this week, let me know.
