I AM POWERFUL IN GOD
Using the Prophetic Decrees Flash Cards, and some dress-up props (like wings, a halo, a sword, a blanket or a cape), have the children take turns dressing up and pretending to be an angel of the Lord, as in the Biblical account of Gideon. (You can even read or tell the children about Gideon in Judges 6 & 7).
Choose one child to play the role of the angel, another child to play the role of “leader of the Lord’s army” and the remaining children will be the army following the leader. Have the “angel of the Lord” come and decree over the “leader” one or several of the statements from the Prophetic Decrees Flash Cards. You can also have the angel give directions to the leader for a “problem” that needs solving! You can be creative with these, and even have the other children participate in the scenario.
For example, the angel of the Lord approaches the leader of the Lord’s army and says, “John, I have a message for you from God! You are the head and not the tail. Whatever you put your hands to will prosper!”…”There is a young boy who lost his dog, go and help him!” The leader and the Lord’s army can pretend to blow a trumpet to sound off the start of their mission.
Once the children have played through the scenario, give the other children an opportunity to play the angel and leader roles. This exercise will give the children an opportunity to learn how to serve and be helpful to those in need, as well as learn who it is that God says they are, no matter their age or current ability!
Life and death are in the power of the tongue and there is authority in the words that we say. The Prophetic Decrees Flash Cards provide colorful images with declarations that powerfully proclaim each child’s position in the family of God. They decree truths such as, “All my choices will honor God,” “I always speak the truth in love,” and “I am a Kingdom leader caring for the good of others.” These cards can be printed and laminated for hands-on use or viewed on any PDF supporting digital device.

Just about every morning after my oldest wakes up, we say our good mornings and give hugs and kisses and he will ask, “Where’s Daddy?” And every morning I respond that Daddy is at work. Over the last week, each morning as we have gone through this repetitive dialogue, I felt the nudging of the Holy Spirit each time he would ask where his father was. I asked God what it was that He was wanting me to see in this. I felt like God was saying that in parenting, we face so many challenges, tests, and trials that leave us saying, “God, where are you??? Where’s Daddy?” We spend so much time praying for our children and ourselves as parents and doing our very best to instruct them in the ways of the Lord…
Throughout over 30 years of ministering identity and destiny to children, we have put together many prayers, identity statements, and tools to empower and speak truth into precious young lives. Here we have the privilege of being able to offer some of these resources just for YOU to minister life in your very own home.
Through this simple, but powerful lesson plan, teach your children the authority that they have over the enemy and how they have the power to choose what they will allow to affect their heart and soul.
