Peter was a good man who loved Jesus and always did what God wanted him
to do. One day, Peter and James went to God's temple to pray.
Peter saw a man lying at the gate of the temple which was called
The man was unable to walk. He was sitting there begging, but
Peter didn't have any money to give this poor cripple. But, he
did have something which was much better. He said to the man,
"Silver and Gold have I none, but such as I have I give unto you!
In the name of Jesus Christ, stand up and walk!"
I Can Walk!
The man was very happy when he found could walk just like other people.
The Bible says that he not only walked for the first time, but

Many people saw what Peter had done and wanted to know what was

saw this miracle believed that Jesus was the Saviour asked Him to
come and live in their hearts.
We can Pray!
God used Peter to heal a lame man, and we can pray to Jesus when someone
is sick and ask Him to heal them. Are any of you sick?
Our memory verse says:
"Pray one for another" (James 5:16).
So let's join hands and ask Jesus to heal and make each child well again.
