Throughout history, shields have protected soldiers from lots of dangers, especially fiery darts. Those darts are a lot like Satan’s temptations to sin and not do the right thing. We don't have to be afraid of these darts. Jesus comes to be our shield, completely surrounding us with His presence, protection, and power. He died on the cross and rose again. He is bigger than any fear. Click the button for a special craft to remind you of this truth.
PRAY and BLESS
Dear Jesus, You are our shield. Thank you for your protection and presence. When we are afraid, help us to remember that we can always trust in you. Amen.
Make the sign of the cross on the forehead of each member of your family and say, "Do not be afraid. Jesus is with you."
