September 2016: The Lord’s Prayer

Our Bible story this month is on The Lord’s Prayer.

On many occasions Jesus taught His disciples the power of prayer.  In this story the disciples find their faith tested when Peter is arrested and thrown into a Roman prison!  As Herod plots Peter’s fate, the believers gather together and follow the example that Jesus taught.

Through faith and persistent prayer, Peter’s chains are broken and the Angel of the Lord opens the prison gates.  The united prayers of the disciples save Peter!

Here’s a short video of our story in case you need a little refresher.

Level 1 and Level 2 activities are available for your learners.

Remember our ministry’s mission:  “To make our Special Friends Life Group the best 60-minutes of a kid’s week!”  Every Sunday that you serve and represent our Special Friends ministry you help to make this happen!

Thank you for creating a space in your busy day to serve others and help to make disciples!

God bless,

Mike
