All Tied Up!
What do we use cord or rope for? (Let the children respond
Well one good use is to tie up naughty boys and girls.
Alright, I was only joking! I'm sure that there are none of
those here today! Instead I am going to wrap the cord around
my hand (Do step 1
Did you know that the devil likes to ties us up (Do steps 2 and 3).
There, I've made a knot to tie up my first finger. That's
because he comes as a thief. He wants to stop you praying and
reading the Bible.
Do you think the devil will stop now? No, he won't. He wants
to steal as well (Repeat steps 2 and 3). Now he's made a
knot and tied up my second finger because he wants to take away our
happiness and joy, and tie us up with sadness.
He won't stop now because he wants to kill (Repeat steps 2 and 3).
Now he's made a knot and tied up my third finger because he wants
to kill all the love in our hearts, and tie us up with jealousy and
He's out to get us and destroy us in any way he can can (Repeat steps
2 and 3). Now he's made a knot and tied up my little finger
because he wants to destroy our faith and trust in Jesus. In
John 10:10a, Jesus told us that:
"The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy."
Jesus came to save us and give us not only eternal life, but life more
abundantly. He wants to set us free as John 10:10b tells us:
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
So let's do what Psalm 17:6 says:
"I pray You, O God, because You will help me."
Can we do that? Yes, we can pray now and ask God to set us free and
He will hear us and answer our prayer. Let's close our eyes and
Dear Father God,
Thank You for loving me so much that You sent Jesus to die for my sins
so that He can free me from the power of Satan. Please set me
free from all sadness, jealousy and hate. Help me to read my
Bible and pray to You every day. I do believe in Jesus and I'm
putting all my trust in Him. Thank you for hearing my prayer.
I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
Jesus has set us free so I am going to remove the loop from my thumb
(Do step 5
). Now I'll pull on the front string – and what
happens? We are free!
Jesus is our Saviour and we prayed to Him and He has set us free!
