Kids’ Lenten Devotional — “I Need Thee Every Hour” — verse 3
THE 3rd WEEK IN LENT
Beginning Sunday, February 28, 2016
Here is the third verse.
I need Thee, every hour
In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide
Or life is vain
Here is the whole song for you to listen to:
“I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them and give them gladness for sorrow.” (Jeremiah 31:13)
Think about what brings you joy. Being at a birthday party? Playing on the beach? Building with Legos? Sitting with your friend in the lunchroom? Laughing with a family member? Stomping in puddles?
Think about what makes you sad. When has a friend helped your sadness turn into joy?
Make a card for a friend who could use some cheering up. Then deliver the card to your friend and spend some time just being together.
Lord, help me to be a good friend to others in their joy and pain.
