This weeks Sum Up is written by Kayleigh who is a member of our Kids Church core team.
We had SO MUCH FUN in Hero Factory on Sunday the kids were so responsive and we all managed to have a good laugh (mainly at me not doing very well in the wheel barrow race!) I love seeing the kids having a great time and seeing them enjoy themselves on a Sunday morning it just fills me with this fire to do it again and again because it shows me that we must be doing something right.
We started our new series on Joshua and spoke about his ‘Sun Stand Still’ prayer. We encouraged the kids to be AUDACIOUS with their prayers, being specific with God and showing their authority in Him to be able to do anything with His power. We asked them to think of some giants in their lives that they need to start praying audaciously for, a lot of things that came up with were illnesses of family members and problems at school, as a team in Hero Factory the leaders all make an effort to include these kind of prayer requests in our own time with God. If we can encourage them to pray audaciously and build their faith they will grow so much in Jesus.
The kids got pretty excited by the fact that they had the power to do anything with the power of God and they realised some of the amazing things He has done for them, that they had barely even realised was Him! There was a lot of talk of Healings they had received and for their family also lots of talk of new friends when they needed them.
It makes me SO happy to see these kids getting excited for God and I really hope over the next few weeks together we can encourage their prayer lives to be bold, daring, cheeky, over-the-top, faith-filled and AUDACIOUS! So we encourage you to spend some time praying with your children this week.
