Faith Kids @ Home: September 28, 2014

The following lesson was taught in our children’s Sunday School classes on Sunday, September 28. We would encourage you to use the ideas below to review Sunday’s lesson with your family.

Jacob Wrestles with God

Passage: Genesis 32

Principle: God hears the prayers of those who believe in Him.

Praise: “Our God Is an Awesome God”

Prompt: Ask your child these questions:

  • What did Jacob pray to God?
  • Why did Jacob pray?
  • How did God answer Jacob’s prayer?


Practice: Help your child apply these truths in the following ways:

  • By trusting God instead of fearing men.
  • By confessing his need for God.
  • By relying on God’s promises in prayer.


This Week: As a family, read Genesis 32.

Next Week: Genesis 37

Memory Verses: “The fear of man brings a snare, but he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.” Proverbs 29:25*
