Multiple times in the Gospels it says that Jesus “stole” away to spend quiet moments in prayer with the Father. It still amazes and challenges me that the Son of God needed those times away from ministry to focus and refuel himself. If Jesus needed those times, how much more do we?
This week in Kidz Express we are going to talk about finding a quiet time and a “God Spot,” or place in our home where we can spend regular time with God. Explore the house with your kids this week and see if there is an ideal chair, corner, bed or another comfy spot where they can spend time with God. You can even set up a CD player with worship music, have a note pad and pencil and a designated Bible that stays in that place.
Matthew 6:6 (NLV)
When you pray, go into a room by yourself. After you have shut the door, pray to your Father who is in secret. Then your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
