On the third day

Prayer Spaces at Home and an Easter Prayer

Hi kids!

Have you ever wished for something that looked impossible to have, to see or do?  Easter is a time to rejoice because for our God nothing is impossible. He found a way to free us all from our sins.  He sent his son Jesus so that he will pay for the consequences of our sins.  

Because for our God nothing is impossible on the third day after he was buried Jesus rose from the dead.  Through his passion, death and resurrection he freed us from sin and paved for us the way to Heaven.

The prayer space we are going to do today (and with those who share our same household) is called:- On the Third Day and to do it we need:-

  • 2 paper plates
  • 2 butterfly clips
  • markers and colours
  • scissors

Start by taking some time to think of how great our God is. So great that on the third Day Jesus won over death.  

On one of the paper plates draw the sign of the cross and think of your sins.

On the other paper plate draw a big easter egg and think that with Jesus you can start a new life filled with love for others and away from your sins.  

Cut this paper plate with the Easter egg in half.  Stick both halves together from the bottom onto the other plate with the cross using the butterfly clips.

Flip open the easter egg plate and while you look at the cross, take time to thank Jesus for his death and resurrection which gives us a new life.

Bye Bye Friends till we meet again.
