This game is a variation of “Duck, Duck, Goose.” Have the children
sit in a circle. Choose one child to be “it.” They will go around the
circle of children saying, “E, E, E.” With each “E” they can tap one of
the children. Then when they say, “Elisha!” the person they tag will
get up and chase them around the circle. The “tagged” person
must try to catch the child who tagged them before they run
around the circle and sit down in the vacant spot.
If they can’t catch them then the “tagged” child will become “it.” If
they do catch them then the original child will remain “it” until
someone can’t catch them. Allow a few rounds of this game.

her. We will also be learning how that God wants to use us to
We have been looking at Elisha’s life as a servant of God. Do you
remember when Elisha had asked Elijah for a double portion of the
Spirit of God just before he was taken to heaven? Today we will be
learning about one of the ways that God answered Elisha’s request.
God knows what we need before we even ask Him, but He still wants
us to ask. And you know He will answer every prayer too.
Sometimes He answers in ways we don’t expect or understand, but
still, He answers. We will also see today how He answered a prayer.
In today’s Bible story we will see God once again cause the
impossible to become possible through his servant Elisha. We will
see a woman look to God, trust in God and cling to God as she goes
