Romans 8:28 and Acts 3:1-10
Today I have a special game to play that you may be familiar with called Mad Gab. Some of you may even have it at home, they have even created a Bible version and today that is what I want to share with you. Today I have only chosen Bible names. What you have to do is read the words on the screen and say them quickly and see if it sounds like someone you have read about in the Bible.
Canon Hey Bell – Cain and Abel
Chose If Fan Mare He - Joseph and Mary
A Big Gale - Abigail
Now Mad Gab is a game that is a lot of fun. It sounds like you are saying gibberish and crazy talk, but if you listen carefully it will makes sense to someone and they get the answer.
Today I want to talk to you about prayer. Sometimes when we pray we might think that we said something wrong or that it did not make sense or maybe we could have done a better job, but I want to tell you something. You can’t pray in a wrong or incorrect way.
In Romans 8:27 it says that “The Spirit intercedes for the Saints in accordance with God’s will.”
Those are a few big words to say that the Holy Spirit hears whatever you say and understands and will make sure that God’s will will be carried out. If you make a mistake, or don’t pray the same way as someone else it is ok, because The Holy Spirit understands you.
We even see in the passage that the grown ups will be hearing that there was a man who could not walk and he was asking for money to help him out. In Acts 3:6Peter replied to him and said, “Silver or Gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” And the man walked.
This man was asking for help with money, but God answered him in a way that he never expected. God knew what he really needed and gave it to him.
Today I want to encourage you to pray, don’t be shy, do your best and come to God because he loves to hear from you, you may not consider your prayer to be perfect, but God knows exactly what you need, so ask, pray, and he will understand.
