God Protects

Daniel in the Lion's Den

OPENING WORSHIP

Reading
The opening reading is Zephaniah 3:17

For the Lord your God is living among you.
He is a mighty saviour.
He will take delight in you with gladness.
With his love, he will calm all your fears.
He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.

Song
If you don’t know the words, or you can’t sing (like in churches that are open during this time) then worshipping God using your body, like in an action song, is a great way to praise the Lord.

Our Lord is ‘mighty to save’. Let’s take delight and rejoice with a joyful song;

EXPLORING THE BIBLE

All Age Talk

This week we’re looking at Daniel in the Lion’s Den – found in Daniel 6 in the Old Testament.

Look out for Trevor the Toucan popping in and out in the background of the All Age Talk - https://youtu.be/8XMF_oWcJEI – recorded on location at Beacon Hill Country Park.

Points for Discussion

  1. Daniel showed he was faithful to God by continuing to pray even when a rule was made against it. What ways do you show that you’re faithful to God?
  2. God looked out for Daniel when he was in danger. How has God helped you? How has God answered your prayers?
  3. The rule said Daniel couldn’t pray but if he had obeyed it he wouldn’t have been doing right by God. Is there something that might make you choose between obeying God and doing what you’re being told to do? Perhaps your friends have encouraged you to do something that you know God wouldn’t be pleased with.

 

CREATIVE PRAYER

Do Not Disturb

Daniel went to his room to pray to God 3 times a day. Of course, we can talk to God anytime, anywhere but it helps if you have a regular time and place when you spend time with God. We’re going to make a door hanger so people don’t burst into the room disturbing your prayers.

  1. You can either print off this template.pdf, or make your own.
  2. Colour it in and decorate with pens. Pencils or maybe stickers if you have some.
  3. Fold the page in half lengthways and glue together.
  4. Then cut out the door hanger.
  5. Now, time to try it out. Hang it on your bedroom door and spend some time in your room talking to God.

 

Prayer of WOW

King Darius was so relieved and wowed by God’s power that sent out a statement to all the people telling them they need to take God seriously,

“For he is the living God,
    and he will endure forever.
His kingdom will never be destroyed,
    and his rule will never end.
He rescues and saves his people;
    he performs miraculous signs and wonders
    in the heavens and on earth.
He has rescued Daniel
    from the power of the lions.”
(Daniel 6:26-27)

We should also take God seriously and remember what the king said here – God is living, he can make a difference in your life today and that will never change; he looks out for his people and can do things that are impossible for people to do; remember this story of Daniel and remember God can do amazing things for you too.

WOW! Let’s take God seriously and pray to him every day.

To help you may like to make a prayer card with these Bible verses and a prayer. Make your own or print off this prayer card.pdf. Cut it out, fold it in half, colour it or decorate with drawings or stickers, stick it on your bedroom wall near your bed, or use it as a book mark – whatever you do, keep it safe and close so you remember to pray every day.

 

Prayer Colouring

Print off the Colouring.pdf. As you colour meditate on the words, by which I mean, repeat the words and ponder on what they mean to you.

 

SONG

Daniel stood firm in his faith even when it meant going against a law made by the king. How would you respond if it was made illegal to worship God? Our final song addresses just that;
