We will learn that
§ God knows us more than we know ourselves
§ We can always trust in God
What was the phrase that was repeated three times? (Do not be afraid)
Were there times when we were afraid? When?
Jesus is telling us that God is always with us even when we are afraid, he will never leave us alone. Jesus wants us to know that he is always with us.
Jesus also tells us that God knows how many hairs we have on our head! So He knows us more than we know ourselves. This shows us that God knows us well, and he knows us even more than those who love us. God loves us more and he wants to take care of us. God knows that there will be times when we will feel alone, or when we will be frightened, but he wants us to remember that he will be there, even though we cannot see him. During these times when we feel lonely, or when we are afraid, we can turn to him in prayer and he will hear us.
§ a bowl
§ dishwashing liquid
§ pasta - macaroni
In the bowl, mix the soap with the water. Put one end of the pasta shape in the mixture. Remove and put the other end in your mouth and blow. Watch the bubbles! (For this activity, you can also use shop bought Bubble Bottles or Bubble Bottles often given as souvenirs).
Allow the children to blow bubbles in the air. After some time tell them to blow a bubble while telling God about something that frightens them. They can repeat this as often as they want. In this way, they will be telling God about their fears and giving them up to him.
We make the sign of the cross.
Jesus, today we want to pray for all daddies, take care of them and bless them.
Jesus, we also want to pray for children who are sick, for those children who are poor or for those who live in countries where there is war. We are sure that these children are very afraid. Thank you Jesus for taking care of us, and you are always with us.
Together we can listen and sing: We’re not scared
