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 three sections: Personal Prayer Journal

Olympians Program Pages

This is where you can write prayer requests to remind yourself to pray for people that you care about and things that are happening.

This section tells you all about the Olympians program if you attend one at your church. It also provides a place to document your progress.

Daily Quiet Time Pages Each day has a Scripture passage to read and questions or activities to help you understand and apply the truths from God’s Word.


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 is just one part of a comprehensive Children’s Ministry program called Olympians. You can learn more about it in the back of this book, or go to wol.is/olympians for more information. 1

Your Daily Quiet Time DAILY PASSAGE Each day, read the verses shown from your Bible.

ACTIVITIES AND QUESTIONS Complete the activities and answer the questions to better understand the thoughts of the passage and why they are important.

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

A. make up the Church as one body of believers. B. tell Gentiles the gospel, the Good News.

q No, but what I would plan to tell them is: ______________________________ _____________________________________________________________________

THINGS I NEED FOR MY QUIET TIME: My Bible • My Quiet Time • Pen or Pencil • A Quiet Place 2

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 One 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.
