1 Samuel 12:23

“Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD  in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. 1 Samuel 12:23

On this blog post I welcome you to join me in prayer for each other as mothers! God invites us to call to Him in prayer, and what better way to do this than to pray using the truths found in His Word? This practice of using God’s Word in prayer has been such a blessing in my life and I am happy to use God’s Word in prayer with you!

After praying with me using the audio, I would encourage you to write the Bible verse used in prayer on a card. (Two simple 4″x6″ prayer cards are available as a free download, or feel free to use a blank index card you already have.) Your prayer cards can be used again and again as you continue to talk to God in prayer.

As a young daughter my parents encouraged me to memorize Scripture verses. I memorized Isaiah 41:10 and it became one of my favorite verses.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

As an adult I continue to treasure Isaiah 41:10. And I can say with confidence that God has always been faithful to His Word. Praise Him! He is worthy of all our trust.

Match the Mix

Are you ready for another game to enjoy as you review Bible Memory verses with your children? 

Play Match the Mix!

Suggested Ages: 5 to Adult

The Match the Mix game cards are super easy to make and the game is fun to play!

Match the Mix!

Supplies: 12 small identical cards, pen or marker (Optional: 12 identical stickers)

Make Cards

1. Choose six of your children’s Bible memory verses.

2. Write the six Bible memory verse references on six cards. One reference per card. Do this again. This will give you two cards of each Bible reference.

3. Place identical stickers on the back of each card if you’d like, or leave the back of the cards blank. 

Play

1. Mix up the 12 cards. Lay the cards out on a table, Bible reference side down.

2. Take turns turning over two cards. If the cards do not match, the person turns the cards back over and it is the next person’s turn. 

3. If the cards match, everyone says the related Bible verse together. The person who turned over the two matching cards puts the matching set beside him.

4. Continue until all the cards have been matched and all the verses have been said. Everyone can then count their card sets to see how many matches they made. 

That’s it!!

Enjoy playing Match the Mix with your children as you review Bible verses together!

Variations

Make another set of 12 cards to review 6 more memory verses. 

Have older children? Make a set of 16 game cards using 8 Bible memory verses.

Sing Psalm 37:31

One of the ways to have fun memorizing Bible verses with your children is to sing the verses! I have enjoyed doing this with our daughters and thought we’d share one of our Bible verse songs with you! Perhaps you will enjoy singing it with your children!

Psalm 37:31 Song Words

Psalm 37:31
The law of His God is in his heart
none of his steps,
none of his steps,
the law of His God is in his heart
none of his steps shall slide.
Psalm 37:31

Where Do You Have Bible Time

Your home is the perfect place to have Bible Time.

Choose a place in your home where you and your children can sit down and also have the freedom to move around as your Bible Time activities dictate. When your children are infants and toddlers, a couch or comfortable chair is a great place for Bible Time. Once your children are ready to draw and write, a table and chairs become very useful.

Our kitchen table worked great for Bible Time. Melissa was the youngest in our family so she began enjoying Bible Time with us in her highchair. Sometimes we used our family room for Bible Time activities as well. 

If you play the piano or another instrument in your home, you may want to start Bible Time where your instrument is and then move to a couch or table.

Take a look around your home and find a place that will work best for you and your children. Look for a place free from things that will distract your children. Places that have toys or a place by a window where your children will see a lot of activity going on outside are best left for another time.
