Talk about it
How do you think Daniel and his friends felt when they were taken to a new country? What do you think would have been hard for them?
This next video shows a bit more detail about a very famous part of Daniel’s life. Before you watch it, see if you can tell someone else in your house about Daniel and the Lion’s Den. Then watch the video to see if you can learn something new!
Talk about it
Why do you think Daniel kept praying to God even though he knew he would get in trouble for it? How do you think Daniel felt when he was with the lions?
We’ve had this verse before, but it’s great to remember that God is always with us, even if we’re facing something new or scary!
“Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you everywhere you go.” Joshua 1:9
To help you remember it, write each word in a different colour on a piece of paper. Cut up the paper to make a jigsaw. Jumble the pieces and see how quickly you can put them back together!
Dear God, thank you for the story of Daniel and his friends. Thank you that you looked after them when they chose to follow you, even though they could have been in a lot of trouble. Please help me to trust you too, and to remember that you’re always with me. Amen.
