God takes care of people who are weak and needy.  One really cool thing about following Jesus is that he wants us to do the things he does with him.  Today we're reading a prayer for God to protect weak and needy people.  As we pray it, we should also think about how we can 

Read these verse with your family:
Psalm 74.19-21
Do not hand over the soul of your dove to wild animals. Do not forget the life of your oppressed people forever.
Consider your promise, because every dark corner of the land is filled with violence.
Do not let oppressed people come back in disgrace. Let weak and needy people praise your name.

Ask your parents what these verses mean.  How do they make you feel?  What do they tell us about God?  How do you think God might want us to behave so that we can help protect people who are weak or poor?  What do you think theses mean for us at Christmas?

Then pray this prayer:
Dear Jesus, thank you for protecting people.  Please do something to help people who are slaves this Christmas.  Please help the weak and needy so they can be joyful and celebrate your birth this Christmas.  And please help us to help them in any way we can.  Amen.

Then color this color sheet and pray for God to protect weak and needy people around the world this Christmas.
