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.
April 22: King David is Anointed
In today’s story, David’s father overlooked him because he was too young. He didn’t think that David could be seen as a ruler because he wasn’t as old as his brothers. His father was wrong! Greatness comes to anyone of any age! You were created to do loving and good things! It doesn’t matter how old you are. Love and goodness is created in all shapes, sizes, colors, abilities, and ages. How can you be love and goodness today?
- 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.
