Growing Together

In these times, we’re doing faith formation differently to keep us safe and healthy. Here, on this new blog, every day you’ll find a video of Eli’jah reading from Desmond Tutu’s Children of God Storybook Bible, plus a child-friendly reflection and three prayers for your day.

March 20: Abraham Trusts God

Today, I’m feeling grateful for Children. In our story today, God tells Abraham that God will give Abraham and Sarah lots and lots of children! I feel like Abraham because I feel so grateful that I have all of the wonderful children at Mayflower as friends. And, I am really missing you! I can’t wait till we can be with one another again on Sundays! Until then, I’ll keep you all close in prayer and fond memories.

Daily Prayers

  • In the morning when we wake up: May today bring joy in new ways. Amen.
  • At mealtimes: Dear God, thank you for health. Thank you for the earth. Thank you for the hands and hearts that made this food. May the earth and your people be healthy. Amen.
  • Bedtime: Dear God, thank you for resting from the top of my head down to my toes. Your love will be with me even in my sleep. Amen.
