Each week we encourage you to take one meal and Eat, Play, Pray as a family. You pick the day and time that works best for you. Eat, Play, Pray can be done as a solo adventure or you can invite another family over for added fun. Then use the prompts below to help you lead your family in discussion.

EAT

Eating up God's Word - Read Matthew 5:43-48 (ESV)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers,[a] what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."

Discuss as a family…
• Who are our enemies?
• Where is God calling you to live out His love?
• How is God calling you to live out His love with your enemies?
• How can we pray for those who persecute you?

Note: Remember, persecution is not people who don’t see eye to eye with us or disagree with us. Persecution is acts of hostility and ill-treatment, especially because of race, political, or religious beliefs.

PLAY

PRAY

Circle up the fam and finish with a word of prayer.

Jesus, help me understand how because of sin in my life I have been an enemy to You. Yet you continue to show me love. Guide us as we earnestly pray for those who persecute us and give us strength to not  condemn and curse our enemies.
