I Wonder ...

Why Do We Pray?

Prayer is talking with God. When we have a good friend, we talk to that person about all sorts of things. That's part of being a friend. In the same way, we should talk to God about what is happening in our life. God wants us to share our life with him, to tell him about what makes us happy, sad, and afraid. He wants to know what we want and what we would like him to do, for ourself and for others. When we pray, we open ourself up to God so that he can make good changes in us.

LOVE Is.....

The dictionary says that love means: "having strong affection for a friend or relative or for another person."

Nobody loves you more than Jesus. Jesus loved you so much that He came to earth as a little baby in a manger and then He died on the cross for your sins so that you could live in heaven with Him someday.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believesin him should not perish, but have everlasting life. "

John 3:16

We feel love many people

Our Mom & Dad
Brothers and Sisters
Friends & Neighbors
Our pets

We should LOVE God with all our heart!

Do you know that when we show love to other people it makes US feel happy too?

Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast, it is not proud It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angeredIt keeps no record of wrongsLove does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres

1 Corinthians 13

Love means waiting for our turn patiently when playing with friends and treating each other with kindness. We should be happy for others when something good happens to them.

LOVE also means to forgive our friends if they hurt our feelings or treat us badly. Forgiving someone also means that we should try NOT to think about what this person did to us. We should try to think nice thoughts about this person.

The Bible also says that LOVE means to protect and trust.Jesus LOVES and PROTECTS us everyday! When we feel REAL LOVE in our hearts, we will be happy when people obey Jesus and His commands.

Obeying your parents.

You can show God you love Him by praying to Him and telling Him that you love Him. You can also show God how much you love Him by reading the Bible and doing what God ask you to do
