GAME: Silent Hunt
Choose two children. One partner is the Searcher and the other is the Friend.

Ask the Searcher to close their eyes or leave the room, while the Friend hides a piece of candy or object.

After hiding the candy/object, the Friend stand in the middle of the room.

Without speaking or moving from the spot, the Friend has to direct the Searcher to the hidden candy/object.

GAME: Blindfold Hunt
Similar as above except that the Searcher is blindfolded, and the Friend can only direct using voice commands.


Jesus Heals a Deaf and Mute Man

Mark 7:31-37 Then Jesus left the vicinity of Tyre and went through Sidon, down to the Sea of Galilee and into the region of the Decapolis. 32 There some people brought to him a man who was deaf and could hardly talk, and they begged Jesus to place his hand on him.

33 After he took him aside, away from the crowd, Jesus put his fingers into the man’s ears. Then he spit and touched the man’s tongue. 34 He looked up to heaven and with a deep sigh said to him,

“Ephphatha!” (which means “Be opened!”). 35 At this, the man’s ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly.

36 Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more he did so, the more they kept talking about it. 37 People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.”

Jesus Heals a Blind Man at Bethsaida

Mark 8:22-25 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”

24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”

25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. 26 Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t even go into the village.”


We can be friends who bring people to Jesus

For the deaf/mute man and the blind man, it was their friends who brought them to Jesus. In this world, there are many people who need to meet Jesus.

They may be physically ill.

But they may also be deaf or blind to God’s love for them.

We can be the friends who bring them to receive a touch from Jesus.

Jesus heals in different ways

Jesus doesn’t heal in one set way, or through a series of magic phrases.

For the deaf/mute man, He put his fingers in his ears and spat and touched his tongue. For the blind man, Jesus spat on the man’s eyes and put his hands on them.

Each time, it’s based on what the Holy Spirit leads Him to do.

Our only action is to come to Him and receive from Him, not to follow a set formula to receive His healing.

Whatever way He uses, it is good. As the people said, “He has done everything well.”


Let us allow Jesus to open our ears, eyes and hearts

We may not blind or mute or deaf. But we all need Jesus.

And to receive from Him and be blessed, let’s allow Him to touch us and open our ears, eyes and hearts.

And with our mouths, we can praise and give thanks to Jesus. If you would like to receive Jesus, let’s pray together now.



Get the kids into small groups to share prayer items (healing or otherwise) and pray for each other.

GAME: Memory Verse Balloon Pass or Thanksgiving Balloon Pass

“He has done everything well,” they said. “He even makes the deaf hear and the mute speak.” Mark 7:37

Prepare an inflated balloon. Children stand in a large circle. They take turns to throw the balloon to each other. The person who receives the balloon has to say a word of the memory verse (Mark 7:37) until the verse is complete.

Alternative: Children take turns to say something they are thankful to God for when they receive the balloon.
