Your Kingdom Come (Matthew 6:9-13)

Josh RobertsComment

Parents,

Below are some devotional helps to use throughout the week.  We'd love for you to use some or even all of these to review this week's story with your kids.

Dinner Time (Deep Dive)

READ the Lord’s Prayer together. (Matthew 6:9-13)

ASK some questions about prayer.

  • What does it mean to pray?

  • Why is the Lord’s Prayer important?

  • How is God like a father to us?

CONNECT it to the family.

  • “Your Kingdom Come” Take time to think and visualize what God’s kingdom is like and why we want it to come soon. Read Psalm 145:13 (part a). Discuss what everlasting means. 

  • Read John 18:36 together. Discuss how God’s kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. It is an exciting place! A place where all the people who have ever loved Jesus will live together and worship him forever.

  • Discuss how there will be no more pain or bad things, because God will make all things new! 

PRAY the Lord’s Prayer together.

Drive Time (Quick Refresh)

ASK what part of the Lord’s Prayer have we been studying this week? (Your Kingdom Come)

  • What does it mean for God’s will to be done here on earth as it is in heaven?

  • Why are we excited about God’s kingdom coming?

REMIND them of the main point.

  • God’s kingdom is where we go if we love God and follow Him.

Bedtime (Soul Work)

ASK how they feel about what we’ve been learning about this week.

  • Is the idea of heaven comforting? Scary? Exciting? Why?

  • What part of heaven are you most excited about?

PRAY the Lord’s Prayer together.

Breakfast Time (Daily Encouragement)

PRAY for them before you drop them off to start their day.

REVIEW one of these doctrine memory questions, or the month’s memory verse by having your kids repeat it after you.

Big Picture Question: What is prayer? Prayer is talking to God the Father, through Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Memory Verse: Matthew 6:9-13 Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.
