Sunday School Lesson on Faith - Jesus Helps Us if We Have Faith!

Use this Sunday School lesson on faith to teach children about the power of faith.


Needed: Bibles

Lesson: (Note: Always allow students enough time to think about and to give their answers to the questions before clarifying the teaching.)

Have a student read Matthew 9:18, or read it yourself.

Ask, What was the problem? (The man’s daughter had just died.)

Did the man have faith that Jesus could bring his daughter back to life? (Yes.)

(Have students take turns reading Matthew 9:19-21, or read it yourself.)

What was the problem with the woman? (She had been bleeding for twelve years and no one could help her.)

Did she have faith that Jesus could heal her? (Yes.)

(Have students take turns reading Matthew 9:22-23, or read it yourself.)

Did the people have faith that Jesus could bring the little girl back to life? (No, they laughed at Him.)

Why do you think Jesus said the girl was asleep when she was really dead?

Being dead and being asleep are the same thing to God because He can bring someone back to life just as easily as waking someone up.

(Have students take turns reading Matthew 9:25-28, or read it yourself.)

What was the two men’s problem? (They were blind.)

Did they have faith that Jesus could heal them? (Yes.)

(Have students take turns reading Matthew 9:29-32, or read it yourself.)

What was the man’s problem? (He was possessed by a demon that made it so he couldn’t talk.)

It says that someone brought the man to Jesus. If someone brought the man to Jesus, does that mean the person had faith that Jesus could help the man? (Yes.)

(Have a student read Matthew 9:33, or read it yourself.)

Jesus healed a sick woman who couldn’t stop bleeding for 12 years, He brought a dead little girl back to life, healed two blind men, and a demon-possessed man who couldn’t talk. What did each of those people have to do for Jesus to help them? (They had to have faith that Jesus could help them.)

Do you have faith that Jesus can help you with your problems? (Yes.)

Jesus can help us with any problem we have. It doesn’t have to be just when we’re sick. Jesus doesn’t help us the way we want Him too all the time, but if we want Jesus to help us, we need to have faith.

How can you ask Jesus to help you? (Pray.)

You can pray and ask for Jesus’ help whenever you want to, wherever you are, and He will hear you.


Game: Heal Tag – Pick one student to be It. When they tag someone that person must freeze and pretend to be the dead girl, the sick woman, the blind man, or the man who couldn’t talk by acting out these characters as best they can. Other players can be “Jesus” and go tag them to unfreeze (heal) them.
