Nehemiah Seeks God

Our hope is for our kids to know that: We seek God

Key Verse:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land”
2 Chronicles 7:14 

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Nehemiah 1:1 – 2:9) Nehemiah was upset to learn that after twelve years the walls of Jerusalem were still not rebuilt. This upset him so much that he wanted to do something about it, so he prayed for four months about it. Afterwards he went to the king for help. Nehemiah wanted to take time off and materials to go to Jerusalem to rebuild the wall. When Nehemiah prayed and humbled himself before God, God answered!

Share:
Tell about a time you needed to seek God in your life. Encourage family members to talk about times they’ve sought after God. Then talk about how God wants a relationship with us and how it is important that we seek Him, because He is always there.

Activity/Challenge for Families:
As a family, seek God’s guidance for everything. To tie in to Nehemiah planning to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, make a giant “wall” to record your prayers. Tape several pieces of paper up to resemble the stones in a wall. Then, inside each stone, write something you need to seek God’s for.
