That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 20th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle A) Can Help Kids to Understand the Gospel.
Use That Weekly Liturgy Lesson for Kids - 20th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Cycle A) to help teach children that God hears all of our prayers. The inspiration for this lesson is the Gospel of St. Matthew 15:21-28 - Jesus cures the daughter of the Canaanite woman.
Today's Gospel highlights the efficacy of faith in prayer. A Canaanite woman seeks Christ's help for her child, who is suffering because a demon possesses her. The mother, a Gentile woman, believes that Jesus has the power to help her daughter. She calls out to Him repeatedly and begs him to intervene. Christ notes that her faith is great, and He cures the girl instantly. Sometimes we may be tempted to think that God isn't listening to us, but He is! Like this mother, we must pray with faith and trust that God hears our prayers and will answer them in His own time and way.
