SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE
Please pray before you start that God would speak and you would hear him.
Consider & Pray
Just like in the first verse of our reading some amazing news from the 3rd of September of God's work in Iran (Christianity Today)...
Spend time in prayer and praise for God's great grace. Pray for protection and boldness as our brothers and sisters in Iran witness to the love of Jesus.
- More information on Iran from open doors here.
Pray for wisdom and discernment that we would know how to engage with the world without being of the world.
Pray that we ourselves would be emboldened as our hearts are warmed by the Gospel and that God would give us opportunities to share this good news.
Song to Start -
Activity 1 - God Has...
In today's passage, we are reminded to respond with praise to the news of God's work. God is at work all of the time! Think about all of the things he has done for you this week. Could you make a list of them as a family? Or you could write the things God has done for you this week on strips of paper and make them into a paper chain to put up to remind you of what he has done, and you could keep adding to it.
Activity 2 - How do you think God has made you?
What gifts do you think God has given to you? Could you use the gifts he has given you to turn the list you have written as a family into praise? Could you draw a picture, make a model, sing a song or write a prayer to praise God for what he has done.
