Pray: Our Story Continues…

Our Story Continues is our way to connect parents to what kids are talking about and experiencing in the Sunday morning teaching. We want to help to equip parents and spiritual parents with Scripture, talking points, and experiential activities to continue to disciple their kids well every day of the week.

Grades 1-5

Summary: In Paul’s letter to Timothy, Paul encouraged him to be confident in his faith, and not be discouraged in any way because he was young. Kids will discover that, even if they are young, there is so much they can do in God’s kingdom! This week, they considered what it looks like to pray for the people in their lives.
Series: 1 & 2 Timothy | Young & Powerful
Big Idea: Even though we’re young, we can pray for everyone.
God Story: 1 Timothy 1-3
Key Verse: Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young. Set an example for the believers in what you say and in how you live. Also set an example in how you love and in what you believe. 1 Timothy 4:12

  1. READ 1 Timothy 2:1-6. Who does Paul encourage Timothy to pray for? Who should we be praying for? How do we pray for them? [Additional passages to read together include: How does Jesus teach his disciples to pray? (Matthew 6:5-15); What else did Jesus pray about? (John 17); An Example of Paul’s Prayers (Ephesians 1:15-23).
  2. WATCH the video teaching below with your family this week. Talk about the video as a family. What stood out to you? What did you like? What did you want to ask a question about? (Tip: If it’s helpful, consider pausing the video as you watch it together, and ask questions or talk about things that stick out to you as you go!)
