Join Olivia and Fiona as they talk about praying from Hebrews chapter 3 with kids
Olivia was born in New Zealand but now calls Brisbane home. She is married to Khai and has two daughters, a tween and a teen. She worships at City North Baptist Church. This is her second year as a member of the GROW committee, and she loves encouraging women and seeing them grow in their relationship with Jesus.
Fiona is married to Gary and they have three teenage daughters. Together, they are part of the church family at Ann Street Presbyterian Church where she is involved in Kids ministry. Fiona loves pointing others to Jesus and digging into God’s Word to women and children
Jesus, you are our Maker, owner, ruler and provider, you are amazing!
You have made us clean on the inside and call us Holy. You make us part of your forever family when we trust you – thank you!
Please give us confidence that, if we have made Jesus our King, we are going to Heaven to be with you. Help us to show and tell others how great you are as we live for you in our messed-up world.
Father God, by your Spirit’s power at work in us, please help us to say NO to every thought, every word, every action that would make you sad, to chuck out all of that sin and to fix our thoughts on Jesus. Help us to make him No 1 in our lives and show us when we are loving or wanting other things more than loving or wanting Him.
Thank you that you speak to us from your Word – the Bible. Please help us to listen when you speak and to understand and believe the truth about Jesus and to do what you say.
We want to cheer each other on as we live for Jesus so that we all keep going and keep growing till we see you face to face. Please helps us to remind each other of Jesus love for us every day so that we never forget how amazing he is.
Thank you, Father God that when we come to you and say sorry you hear us and forgive us because of Jesus. We thank you in his precious and powerful name Amen.
