Just Do It

Think Different

Finger Licking Good

I’m Lovin’ It


What’s in a name? Successful companies are very proud of their names. Their names/brands are easily recognisable. They speak of quality, of trustworthiness, of value. When someone has a bag or shoes of a certain brand, we think, “Ooo … that must be good!”

A  name has a reputation. When you tell someone, “I am so-and-so’s kid”, people recognise who you are by who your family is. So it’s important not to behave badly or do something that would bring down your parents’ name.

A name has power too. Especially if it’s a famous name. Or the name of someone in authority, e.g. a big tycoon, or a boss, or a leader. When the police try to enter the premises of a suspect, they will stand at the door and shout, “This is the police. Open up!” The name “police” carries authority that opens doors.

Today, we will look at the name that is above every name — the name of Jesus.

LESSON (ACT 3:1-10)

SONG: Peter and John went to pray

Get kids to sing along with simple actions, e.g. pray, open palms, leaping, jumping etc.
Two weeks ago, we learnt about Philip, a young man who went and did what God asked him to do — walk, open and stretch — and share Jesus to an Ethiopian official.

Today, we learn about two of Jesus’ closest disciples who brought Jesus’ name out into the streets.

Peter and John were going to the temple to pray, when they met a lame man, lying next to the Beautiful Gate. He could not walk since birth. Every day, his friends brought him to the temple to beg.

When the man saw Peter and John, he stretched out his hand. "Please, do you have some money you could give me? I really, really need money."

Well, our friends, Peter and John, looked at the man and told him, "Look at us!"

The man looked up eagerly, expecting to be given money.

But then Peter said, “Silver or gold I have none” — which basically means, “I do not have money.”

What a let-down!

Peter didn’t stop there, though. He continued saying, “But what I do have, I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”

And the man didn’t just walk. He jumped and leapt — for the very first time in his life — and praised God for the amazing thing that had just happened to him!

As Peter told the people around him, “It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him.” (Acts 3:16)

Isn’t Jesus great? Isn’t the name of Jesus powerful?


Like Peter and John, most of us have no money — after all, we are still young kids. We do not go out to work and earn money like our daddies or mummies. So how do we bless others in need?

The good news is we have Jesus in us. And we have the power of His name. With the power of Jesus’ name, we can bring Jesus’ light wherever we go, to everyone we meet.

We can speak the name of Jesus over: [Do share personal testimonies/stories for either of these.]

·       Fear:

Whatever our fear is — the dark, spiders, ghosts, exams, bullies — Jesus is bigger and more powerful than them. Do you know that even the demons are afraid of the name of Jesus? So if Jesus is with you, you have nothing to fear.

If we are afraid, or our friends are afraid, we can remind ourselves that Jesus is always with us, and His courage is with us. We can declare boldly, “In Jesus’ name, fear go away.”

·       Circumstances (e.g. Weather):

There are many things we may not be able to handle, but we can commit to Jesus. After all, He is the one who calms the winds and the waves. If things are getting out of control, or if the rain is coming down on your party, just speak to it in Jesus’ name and believe that He will bring it under control.

·       Health:

If any of your friends or teacher or neighbour is unwell, don’t be afraid to go up to them and say, “Can I pray for you? Thank you Jesus for taking all the sickness on the cross. Thank you that you love ________ and will take away the pain/sickness/fever, in Jesus’ name.”

·       Problems:

If you see your mummy or daddy upset or stressed, ask them, “Can I pray for you in Jesus’ name?”


At the name of Jesus, every knee will bow — our problems and challenges, fears and sicknesses.

When we go out in Jesus’ name, God uses us and whatever little we have — our time, our smile, our gifts and talents — to be a blessing and encouragement to others.

Let’s arise and shine, and bring Jesus’ name to our friends and family!



Acts 3:16 “It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him.”


In smaller groups, get the kids to share about any situation (fears, circumstances, health, problems) that they want to declare Jesus’ name to. Ask them to also give one name of someone that they can share Jesus to. You may want to get them to write them on a big piece of paper or smaller cards and place them in the centre. Different ones can take one of these points to pray over. Get them to practice stretching their hands out to declare Jesus’ name and power into these situations.

There is Power in the name of Jesus

No other name but the name of Jesus
