Bible story: The friend in need

Creative activities based on the Bible story of The friend in need

We've compiled a range of creative ideas and activities that relate to the Parable of the Friend in Need in Luke 11:5-8. This parable tells the story of a man who goes to his friend in the middle of the night to ask for bread to feed a visitor who has arrived unexpectedly. Although the friend is reluctant to get up and help, he eventually does so because of the man's persistence.

This parable teaches us about the importance of persistence in prayer, and the willingness to help others in need. It challenges us to be good neighbors and to always be ready to lend a hand to those who require our assistance.

Our creative ideas and resources can be used in various settings such as church children's programs, children's ministry, catechism classes, children's services, Bible clubs, vacation Bible school, and Sunday school. They are designed to help you share this parable in an engaging and interactive way, and to help students understand the importance of prayer and helping others in need.
