Today the judge we meet is Deborah.  Deborah is a welcome breath of fresh air after the last two judges.  Deborah is a well-respected leader in the community.  She is someone people come to for advice and she is known to hear from God.  God uses Deborah to conquer the enemy and give his people leadership in the land again.  We also see a typical response of victory as Deborah leads the people in a victory song.  What does your victory song say?  How have you expressed your gratitude and love to God?

Ministry Minute for May

This month our ministry minute will focus on a simple way to pray and renew your thoughts.   Have you ever had to stop and remind yourself that God has your every worry you may have in his hands?  This month we are going to try “Breathe Prayer.”  Here’s how it works:

When you are overcome with worry or anxiety think of Psalm 56:3  “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”

 

First: Choose a word or brief phrase to repeat in one breath. 

 

Next: If it’s a phrase, say one part on the inhale and one part on the exhale. 

 

For example, invite your children to think in their minds or whisper to themselves Psalm 56:3. Next, on the inhale, think or say “When I am afraid.” Then, on the exhale, think or say “I will trust you.”

Repeating breath prayers is a meditative practice that can be done with children of almost any age. God is always there and has the plan for our lives and our worries.

 


 

In The Word

This week we are going to read the whole story of Samson and see what we can learn about following God.  As you read these passages pick out something you see that Relates these passages together, then something you Learned in the passages and finally what will you Apply from theses passages.
