Easter Devotions (whānau ed.): Day 7


These resources were sourced from 'The Network' and are designed to help parents & caregivers engage their young children in the Easter story. If you're looking for resources better suited for older children/teens, have a look on the StrandNZ site or check out our other blog posts which include daily animated videos.

BREATHE: Calm your head, heart, and hands as you slowly breathe in . . . and out.

READ: John 20:1-18

WONDER: What do you think Jesus’ friends thought when they saw that his tomb was empty? Why do you think Jesus’ friend Mary Magdalene didn’t realize at first that she was talking to Jesus? What would you have done when you realized Jesus was alive again? Who would you run to tell?

PRAY: Celebrate Jesus’ resurrection by echoing this prayer together  (repeating each phrase as it’s read): Jesus, you are Lord. Jesus, you are our hope. Jesus, you won the victory over death. Jesus, we jump for joy because you are alive! Amen.
