Bible Story: 1 Kings 3:3-14 | Solomon’s Request
Main Point: I will ask God for what I need!
Memory Verse: “Finally, let the Lord make you strong. Depend on his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor. Then you can remain strong against the devil’s evil plans.” Ephesians 6:10-11
Dear princes and princesses of the Royal Land,
Sir Pogo and Darrin have collected six of the seven pieces of the armor of God. They continued on their journey, looking for the Gloves of Prayer, when they came to a stream. Darrin said he would take Sir Pogo across the stream, but only if Sir Pogo held onto the supply bag. Sir Pogo did not mean to, but he let go of the supply bag while they were crossing the stream and it floated away.
While searching for the supply bag, a royal messenger arrived with a special message from me. This message was about King Solomon from the Bible. King Solomon asked God to help him be a good king and make right choices. After hearing the Bible story about King Solomon Sir Pogo decided he should be more like King Solomon and trust that God would provide them with all they needed.
The Bible story helped Sir Pogo and Darrin learn to ask God for His help. If if they didn’t get the supply bag back, they knew God would give them what they needed. When they finished praying, a man walked passed them carrying their supply bag. He had found it washed up on shore downstream! Because they trusted God and prayed to Him, they received one of the Gloves of Prayer.
Don’t forget about the Royal Ball next weekend, princes and princesses!
Francis has gotten the castle in tip top shape for the ball and we are going to have so much fun!
See you next week in your best royal attire!
Each week your child will come home with another knight to add to their Hall of Knights poster. Once their poster is complete with four knights, your child can bring it back to Quest and receive a prize from the Queen’s royal treasure chest!
Join us in helping your child learn Ephesians 6:10-11! If your child comes back with this verse memorized, they will receive their own storybook from the Queen, filled with the adventures of Sir Pogo and Darrin the Daring Donkey.
Finally, let the Lord (point up)
make you strong. (make muscles)
Depend on his mighty power. (shout POWER and shoot fist in air)
Put on all of God’s armor. (hands on hips)
Then you (point out)
can remain strong (cup hands around mouth and repeat ‘strong’ three times)
against the devil’s evil plans. (tap fingers together like a villain)
Learning this verse helps us learn how to be better leaders, like those in the Bible stories we read each week. Practice your verse with your prince and princess, then ask him or her to Remember, Think, and Follow to review what we learned this weekend:
1. Remember: Who did we learn about in our Bible story? (King Solomon)
2. Think: What did King Solomon ask God to help him with? (being king and making wise choices)
3. Follow: Can you read follow King Solomon’s example and ask God for what you need? (yes)
