This Kids' Page can be used by teachers, parents or kids. It has some of the #3 Prayer Point and a few extras.
Decide how much or how little you want to use each time.
Remember to weed the garden of your heart. Praise God for HIS Righteousness!
Has anyone ever been unkind to you?
It happens to everyone.
But, what should we do about it?
Here's a story about a guy who decided
to do something when other people hurt him.
Have you ever been like Malcom?
Do you carry rocks around in your pocket?
But, you might have rocks in your heart.
Read this skit with a parent or another person.
"Forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those
who trespass against us."
So, what does that mean?
In this instance, trespasses mean sins.
God forgives us
we forgive others.
This is the second part of the
"R" part of I PRAY
Remember that your heart
is like a garden for God's Spirit?
If your heart garden is full of rocks of
those rocks block God's Spirit in your heart.
And that's not good!

after the Forgiveness Skit:
So, did you let go of a rock?
Maybe you don't know if you have any rocks.
Pay attention to the movies that play in your head.
Sometimes we play those mean words or actions over and over
until we get really down.
That's a rock.
Rocks need to go because that's the ENEMY'S tricks
to get you to take your eyes and heart
off of Jesus!
Kick the enemy out!!
How do you kick Him out?
Remember Jesus and His forgiveness.
Praise Him, repent and forgive!
It's that simple!
It's simple, but...
forgiveness can be hard!
It feels like some people don't deserve to be forgiven.
But, God loves us SOOOOOOOO much,
He doesn't want us to be
separated from Him.
So, we don't forgive others
because they deserve it.
None of us deserve His forgiveness.
We forgive because
Jesus loves us
and we love Jesus.
So, forgiveness is a gift
Jesus gave us and we give back to Him!
Forgiveness is an act of love for Jesus!
Here's another video about Jacob and Esau.
Are you ready?
You'll be glad you did!
When you pray,
ask the Lord if you have
any rocks that are in your heart.
ask God to bless them.
We'll talk about that more later.
Here's a coloring page for you!
