Well, there’s this prophet, which you might have heard of, named Daniel who has had a lot of experience with these matters. Yet each time he was tested he came out without a blister or scratch. What was his secret? How was he always able to stand up to the king and those enormous challenges? Daniel believed that he should worship and pray to the one true God. He believed, beyond a doubt, that his prayers would be answered. What a prayer warrior he was!
Are we being tested a bit during this quarantine? Is working at home challenging us to balance our careers, home chores and children’s school work within a very small confine? Or maybe the opportunity to work has been taken from us, and we feel the pressure of not being able to make ends meet. Or consider if we are that “essential worker” who was not given either of those options and we worry about keeping our family virus free.
We have all been handed our fiery furnaces but as Christians we have the hope that comes from the one true God. I hope that you can carve out a little quite time to be with that one true God and share your concerns with Him. He can take it and He wants to hear from you!
Our children’s Sunday School lesson this week is about Daniel. We suggest that the children pray about their challenges and we remind them about the power of prayer. Here is the link to the video, craftivities, snacks and games.
