Lesson Learned: God gives you rest.
Materials Needed: shoebox, contact paper, small blanket, stickers, small stuffed animal
I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.
Talking Points: God gives us peace and rest. If you are ever scared or worried about something, God can help you feel restful! Being restful means that you aren’t worried about anything; it means you are happy where you are at and that you know you are taken care of.
Questions: Have you ever had trouble falling asleep? Have you ever tried praying to God to help you sleep and get rest?
Decorate a shoe box with fun-colored contact paper. Let the child decorate the box with stickers. Flip the box upside and let the child put the stuffed animal in the box like a bed, covering the animal with a blanket. Say some prayers to help her animal fall asleep.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for giving us rest. We will always have peace when we look to You. Amen!
