Faith that Works

Teaching middle schoolers how to live and practice their faith

A Bible verse for each day of the second week of Advent

Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, in prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God.  Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

With firm purpose you maintain peace;
in peace, because of our trust in you.
Isaiah 26:3

I have told you this so that you might have peace in me.  In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.
John 16: 33

The Lord bless you and keep you!
The Lord let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!
The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!
Numbers 6:24-26

And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body.  And be thankful.
Colossians 3:15

May the Lord give might to his people;
May the Lord bless his people with peace.
Psalms 29:11

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.  Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”
John 14:27

Some ideas for how to use these verses during this second week of Advent:
~ have students write them in their Bible journals- this would also be great practice for looking up verses in the Bible.
~ use these as an opening prayer, or in between verses of O Come O Come Emmanuel for a mini prayer service.
~Ask students to say which is their favorite and why, or let them choose their own favorite verses about peace.
