Easter Hosanna (Children’s #68)

- Talk about the things that happened and think about what it would have been like to be there. How many people were there? (About 2,500).

Who can I minister to today?
I Think When I Read That Sweet Story (Childrens #56)
- What did the Savior teach in these verses? Do you recognize the prayer?
- Verse 9 says that the people were “filled.” Do you think this means they ate a lot of the sacrament bread? What does it mean?
- In order to be filled with the Spirit, we need to be making right choices during the week and not just repenting on Sundays.
- Watch “Jesus Christ Introduces the Sacrament”
What questions can I ask myself during sacrament to reflect on my week?
Some examples may include:
- “How is the Savior’s sacrifice influencing my daily life?”
- “What am I doing well as His disciple, and what can I improve?”
What can I do today to prepare myself for the sacrament on Sunday?
Jesus Is Our Loving Friend (Children’s #58b)
- The Savior prayed for all of the people. Then He taught them how to pray.
- How would it feel to have the Savior pray for you? What would it be like?
- Why do we pray? How do we feel when we pray?
- What does He teach about how we should pray? How can we make our prayers more meaningful?
- Watch “Jesus Christ Prays and Angels Minister to the Children”
What is something meaningful I can pray about today?
Jesus Loved the Little Children (Children;s #59)
- Suppose you had a friend who knew nothing about Jesus Christ except that you are one of His followers. What would your friend conclude about Him, based on your actions?
- After blessing the people and teaching them so many wonderful things, Jesus went into Heaven.
- What did the people do after He left? They worked hard to tell everyone about it! Why?
- Imagine you lived back then. How would you feel to have missed Him the first day? What would you want others to do?
- What does it mean to you to “hold up your light that it may shine unto the world”?
How can I hold up my light today?
The Holy Ghost (Children’s #105) both verses
- Think about your recent prayers. What do your prayers teach you about your deepest desires?
- What did the people pray for after spending the entire day in the presence of the Savior, the Son of God?
- Why is the gift of the Holy Ghost so desirable
- What did they do right after praying for the Holy Ghost? They were baptized.
- After you’re baptized, you will/did get the gift of the Holy Ghost, too.
- What do you desire the most? What do you need to do to get it?
What can I do today to feel the companionship of the Holy Ghost?
