Daniel and the Lions Den

Children will enjoy the drama and suspense of this story. Will Daniel keep praying? Will God save him? There’s lots of potential for being creative, it’s great for acting out and provides wonderful opportunities for discussions on standing up for your beliefs and not succumbing to peer pressure. We use the story to learn about the Christian practise of prayer and to think about what we can learn from the character of Daniel.

This material is aimed at first level.
