THE STORY

READ THE STORY. EXPERIENCE THE BIBLE.


AS YOU READ CHAPTER 29
This week we read Chapter 29 of The Story and learn about a man named Saul who turned into Paul!
1. Paul and Silas traveled around preaching about God. Some
people loved them; others wanted to hurt them. One time
they were arrested and chained up in jail. Instead of feeling
sorry for themselves, they sang and prayed to God. Why
were they doing this?
Prayer: God, we ask you to help us be strong in times where
we are scared and hurt. We ask we learn from Paul and
Silas and make the best of any situation we are in. Amen!
2. How would you act if you were thrown in jail? Would you
sing? Would you be scared?
Prayer: God, we thank you for showing us how Paul and
Silas acted when being thrown into jail. We ask we learn
from them and remind ourselves to be strong in any
situation we are put into. Amen!
3. Why werent Paul and Silas scared?
Prayer: God, thank you for always being with us wherever
we are. We ask you help us have a faith so large that
nothing scares us. We ask when we are in those situations
that we pray to you help for comfort and healing. Amen!
4. A powerful earthquake opened all the jail doors and made
the chains fall off. Why didnt Paul and Silas escape?
Prayer: God, remind us we are to obey your laws and the
laws that are put into place today on this earth. We ask that
we obey them even if we dont believe in them, because that
is what you would want us to do. Amen!
5. Paul suffered a lot for Jesus Christ. He was blinded, beaten,
stoned and jailed. But he said suffering was good because
it creates perseverance, character and hope. What do you
think about this?
Prayer: God, thank you for helping us to be strong and
develop more faith in you when we go through hard times
in our lives. We ask you help us learn from every situation
and that we grow closer to you. Amen!
