Week 2

Read and Reflect

Scripture Reading: Genesis 15:5-12

Just as Abram believed and trusted in God’s promises, we can have faith in God’s many promises to provide for us. The blessings we receive through Christ are as innumerable as the stars.

Reflection:

Have your family members count their blessings by making a list of the things they are thankful for. As your hearts overflow with gratitude for all God has done, consider how you can be a blessing to those in need.

Verse to Memorize

He will transform the body of our humiliation that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, by the power that also enables him to make all things subject to himself.

Philippians 3:21

Fundraising Activity:

The Reward of Remembrance

Fact and Prayer

Around the world, there are 61 million children of primary school age not getting an education. (UNICEF, 2017)

Our Creator and Heavenly Father, we pray for all the orphans and abandoned children in this world. Father, watch over these children and bless them with your great mercy and love. Comfort them when they are lonely, feed them when they are hungry, help them be educated. Heal them when they are sick or with fever, protect them and give them a safe place to lay their heads at night, and give these children comfort and peace. In the name of Jesus our Lord. Amen.
