Love the Brokenhearted Activity

Love the Brokenhearted

READ:  Matthew 5:1-12 -

REFLECT: (Page 84 Jesus Next Door)
  • What is making you feel sad or brokenhearted? Have you talked to God about it?
  • Who is someone you know who is sad and brokenhearted? How can you pray for them?
  • Comfort them?

PRAY: (Page 84  Jesus Next Door)
  • God, help me turn to You in prayer and with my actions even when when I am brokenhearted.
  • God, help me to trust You even when I do not understand what is happening. 
  • God, help my family and friends turn to You for comfort and peace. 
  • God, please draw near to those around me who feel brokenhearted.

EXPERIENCE THE STORY: Pray for the Brokenhearted
  • Cut a big cross out of paper or cardboard. 
  • Give everyone a band-aid or two. (if you don't have any to spare, you can just write names on the cross)
  • Have everyone think of people who are experiencing heartbreak. This can be within your family, yourself, friends, or the world. 
  • Write the names of these people on each bandaid or, on the cross.
  • As you do this - pray for each person BY NAME - asking God to draw near to them and comfort them according to His promise.
