What You Do: Give each student a small piece of paper and a pen to write a prayer. Tell the
class to prayerfully think about what they can bring to King Jesus
this year. (Spend a few minutes praying and asking God to show the
class what they can bring to Jesus.) Begin a sentence with,
"Because Jesus is the King of my life, I
will_________________." Then have the students fill in the blank.
Have them write 3-4 sentences whereby they fill in the blank. (For
example, "Because Jesus is the King of my life, I will show
kindness to my enemies." or, "Because Jesus is the King
of my life, I will spend more time reading his word.")
Make Epiphany Boxes to store
Decorate a small cardboard or tin box* with paint, pens, markers, and various other
items such as small beads, jewels, gold cord, etc. * Small tea boxes
or International Coffee tins work well.
Place the prayers into the box
and store it in a prominent place in your bedroom to remember the gift
that you will bring to Jesus this year.
Pray: "Dear Jesus,
thank you for coming to earth as a baby and becoming a man. Thank you
for going to the cross to be the sacrifice to make me right with
God. Help me this New Year to be a living sacrifice for you in all the
things that I say and do. May the words of my mouth and the
meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my Rock
and my Redeemer. Amen."
