Jesse Tree: Day 6

December 4

Scripture:  Genesis 21:1-7

Reading:  Have you ever wanted something so much that you thought you would die if you didn’t get it? It’s so hard to be happy when we focus on the things we don’t have, instead of the things we do have.

Sarah wanted a baby more than anything, but even though she prayed a lot and tried everything she could think of, she didn’t have a baby. As she got older she finally decided that God would not give her a child. But then God gave Sarah a son, and she named him Isaac. Sarah was very happy and grateful to God for giving her a wonderful son when she had given up on her dream.

Talk About:  How has God answered your prayers?

Prayer:  Gracious God, thank you for answering our prayers.
