Introducing your

Quiet Time It’s a special time that you set aside each day to read God’s Word, to get to know Him better, and to learn how He wants you to live. During this time, God speaks to you through His Holy Word, the Bible, and you speak to God through prayer. What an adventure! As a Christian, spending time in God’s Word every day is very important for you to grow closer to Him.

This booklet is divided into two sections:

Personal Prayer Journal

Daily Quiet Time Pages

A place for you to write your prayer requests and answers to your prayers.

Each day has a Scripture passage for you to read and questions or activities to help you understand, think through, and use the truth from God’s Word.

HEY PARENTS!

This Quiet Time provides an easy, fun opportunity to interact with your child about the vital truths of God’s Word. Here are some tips to help your child get the most out of their time in God’s Word. • Work together to decide on a regular daily time to set aside for their Quiet Time.

• Ask your child what the passage was about, what they learned, or how they will live it out.

• Work together to decide on a good place to keep their Bible, this Quiet Time, and other supplies needed.

• Share with your child a way that passage impacts your own life.

• Be available to help your child find the Bible passages and answer questions they may have.

• Encourage your child to use the Prayer section, and ask if they would like you to pray for any specific request.

This Quiet Time and Word of Life’s Teen/Adult Quiet Time use the same Scripture passages. This makes it easier for your whole family to share and discuss what you have learned with each other.

Week 1 ONLY THE BEST! The very best way to pray for my Christian friends … The very best perspective on life … The very best attitude …

SUNDAY

PHILIPPIANS 1:1-7

I’ll pray and thank God for other believers who help me!

LIVE IT

PHILIPPIANS 1:1-5

Complete this section to put God’s Word into action.

Paul was thankful for others who partnered with him in sharing the Gospel! One person I am thankful for who has helped me spiritually is:

PRAYER Use this to start off your time talking to God after reading His Words to You. You can also write prayer requests in the front of this Quiet Time. The important thing is to remember to spend time talking to God in prayer.

Paul prayed for lots of different things in the Bible. In these verses, he is praying for: (Circle one) UNSAVED PEOPLE

OTHER BELIEVERS

POOR PEOPLE

LIVE IT!

God works in my heart and life in different ways and times throughout my life. One way I think God is working on me right now is: (Hint: What really stuck out to me as I read my Bible recently or listened to a pastor or teacher?) _________________________________________________________ . I’ll write it on a card or small piece of paper, then tape it where I’ll see it every day and remember to pray about it. I’ll talk to the person I named above about what I wrote, and what I should do about it.

PRAYER: God, I know You are working in my life. Help me understand and act on what I wrote above. Thank You for Your power and other believers who help me live for You.

THINGS I NEED FOR MY QUIET TIME: My Bible • My Quiet Time • Pen or Pencil • A Quiet Place


My Personal Prayer Diary Spend time with God through prayer. Keeping a Personal Prayer Journal is a great way to remind yourself to pray for specific people and things. It also reminds you to thank God and to tell others when He answers your prayers. Prayer is the chance you have to talk to the Person who loves you the most. God wants to hear what you’re thinking and feeling. He wants you to share anything that is on your heart with Him. He wants that time with you. Some ideas of what to talk to God about include: FRIENDS AND FAMILY: safety, health, problems, and those who don’t know Jesus as their Savior.

PRAISE TO GOD: You can praise God for Who He is and His salvation through Jesus.

YOURSELF: that you will grow in your Christian life and become what God wants you to be. You can pray about any problems or struggles you have.

THANKS TO GOD: You can thank God for answered prayers, specific people, and so many other things.

MISSIONARIES: You can ask them for specific prayer requests. Write these on your prayer pages.

AUTHORITIES OVER YOU: Teachers, people in government, pastors, church leaders, and parents.

MONDAY

PHILIPPIANS 1:8-14

What should be the overall goal of my life as a Christian? PHILIPPIANS 1:9-11 As a Christian, my life should look: (Circle one) SINFUL

PURE

LOVING OF OTHERS

GUILTY

BLAMELESS

HATEFUL OF OTHERS

One thing that makes it hard to live this way is:______________________ _______________________________________________________________

PHILIPPIANS 1:12-14 Even though Paul was in prison when he wrote this, he found good things to talk about from his imprisonment. What were two things he spoke of? 1._____________________________________________________________________________ 2._____________________________________________________________________________

LIVE IT! If I wore sunglasses with blue lenses, everything would look a bit blue. It’s like Paul put on his “Jesus sunglasses” and saw his hard time through Christ’s perspective. A time that seemed hard in my life was: (Example: parents’ divorce, sick friend, etc.) ___________________________________________________________________________

Now comes the tricky part! I’ll think of something to praise God for as a result of it. (Write or sketch.)

Sometimes I honestly can’t see what good will come out of a bad situation—at least not right away. YES / NO (Circle one)

PRAYER: Lord, please help me to see my life from YOUR perspective. Help me to use my “Jesus sunglasses” to see problems as opportunities You give me. Help me live a pure and blameless life that shows love and goodness even when it’s hard.


TUESDAY

PHILIPPIANS 1:15-21

Am I living for Christ or for myself? PHILIPPIANS 1:15-17 Paul saw two reasons for preaching. They were: 1.______________________________________________________________________________ 2.______________________________________________________________________________

PHILIPPIANS 1:20-21 Paul had some serious goals! One was that he would NEVER: (Circle one.) BE LATE FOR CHURCH

BE ASHAMED OF JESUS

BE UNPOPULAR WITH HIS FRIENDS

Instead he wanted to ALWAYS: (Circle one.) HAVE THE LATEST SMART-SCROLL

HANG OUT WITH THE COOL KIDS

SPEAK BOLDLY FOR JESUS

LIVE IT! If I was in a beautiful forest close to a tree, I’d see its leaves and bark, but not the bigger beauty of the whole forest. Life can be like that—it’s easy to see what I’m experiencing right now (a tree). Like Paul, I’ll step back to see the big picture, life and eternity (the forest). Inside the tree I’ll write one thing I worry about that’s not that important compared to eternity. Beside it I’ll write two actions I can take that matter for eternity.

1. 2.

PRAYER: God, please help me to live each day with YOUR bigger picture in mind. Help me to do the actions I wrote down.


WEDNESDAY

PHILIPPIANS 1:22-30

Where is my true home as a Christian? PHILIPPIANS 1:22-26 I’ll draw lines to match the phrase and complete the thought. A Christian who:

lives and works for God on earth

gets to be with Christ.

dies and goes to Heaven sees progress for God in people’s lives.

PHILIPPIANS 1:28-29 It is worth it to follow God and His Word, even if it’s hard. It is a privilege not only to trust Christ, but also to suffer for Him. I should expect the Christian life to be easy. YES / NO (Circle one)

Philippians 1:27

LIVE IT!

Am I alone in the struggles of life? YES / NO (Circle one) As a citizen of Heaven, representing God, I will NOT_____________________ __________________________________________________________________ , but I WILL stand for God by:_________________________________________ .

Philippians 1:30 A Christian friend that encourages me when it’s hard is: (name) __________________________________________________________________. A friend who I think could use my encouragement is: (name) __________________________________________________________________.

PRAYER: God, help me to remember that I represent You. I want to stand for You like a good citizen and soldier. It’s hard to do this when _______________________________________________________________ . Help me to trust You and do the right thing, no matter what.


THURSDAY

PHILIPPIANS 2:1-8

Who comes first in your life? PHILIPPIANS 2:5-8 Wow! Here is my example! If anyone who ever lived had something to be proud of, it was Jesus. He chose instead to humbly show His love for us. The amazing ways He did that in these verses were: (Write a list or sketch.)

LIVE IT!

Philippians 2:1-4

Below, I’ll write down the “do” and “don’t” instructions that I can find in this passage.

DO DON’T

One of these instructions I will follow today is: . I did this.

(Initial here.)

PRAYER: God, help me to humbly live a life like Jesus, especially as I work on what I wrote above. Help me to think of others before myself like He did.


FRIDAY

PHILIPPIANS 2:9-16

Does it really matter if I live a life of obedience? PHILIPPIANS 2:9-11 I see God the Father show approval of Jesus’s obedience to Him in these verses in these two ways: 1. 2.

PHILIPPIANS 2:12-13 My salvation can be seen as I: obey God, allowing Him to use me for His purposes. do whatever I want, without considering what God wants. The power and desire to do what pleases God comes from: (Circle one.) MY PARENTS.

GOD.

MY TEACHERS.

Philippians 2:14-16

LIVE IT!

I’ll write or doodle what living one of these verses out would be like in my life.

I’ll write the verse on a card and tape it where I’ll see it every day. I’ll ask God to help me obey this truth by doing this: . I’ll write a request in my prayer journal at the front of my Quiet Time about living out what I wrote or doodled above.

PRAYER: God, thank You for Jesus, Who obediently and humbly lived and then died for me. Help me to live obediently each day.


SATURDAY

PHILIPPIANS 2:17-23

Do my actions each day look like a beautiful offering to God? PHILIPPIANS 2:17-18 Paul talks about pouring his life out as an offering to God. As I think about these verses, I see that that offering would be: (Circle.) GIVEN FREELY

SACRIFICIAL

SELFISH

JOYFULLY GIVEN

PHILIPPIANS 2:19-21 Like Timothy, I should: be concerned with my own interests. be concerned with others’ well-being and what Jesus cares about.

PHILIPPIANS 2:22-23 In what way was Timothy like a son to Paul?

LIVE IT! I’ll do one of the following: I’ll ask God who can help me grow in my relationship with Him and whom I can help in ministry as an encouragement. A  n adult who could be a spiritual parent to me by teaching me to serve God is: . (Maybe it is Mom, Dad, or a teacher.) I'll ask an adult how I can help them in ministry. . Our plan of action is: .

PRAYER: God, help me to be willing to offer my whole life to You, just like Paul and Timothy. I pray also that I can help someone who is serving You in ministry and encourage them. *You know, your life will be spent one day at a time, for something. If you want your life to really count for all eternity, use each day for God’s kingdom!
