Procedure: Review the story of the Birth of John the Baptist. Remind the students that even when John’s birth seemed impossible, God made it possible because it was part of His plan for John to do great things for God’s Kingdom. God wants us to have faith in Him when life is both easy and difficult. God always keeps His promises to love and care for us through everything we deal with. It is important to lean on God and pray about the difficult things going on in your life so you can have strength and wisdom from God.
