Week 24 - Daniel and the Lion’s Den -
Bible Time FUN Through the Bible
Kids Bible Lesson 24 - Daniel and the Lion's Den

Welcome to week 24!

This week your children learn the Bible story of Daniel and the Lion’s Den.

The king created a new law forcing everyone to stop praying. Daniel loved God,

so he continued to pray, like he always did. He wanted to obey God’s law over man’s law. Unfortunately, the king found out and sentenced Daniel to be thrown into a den of hungry lions.


In this Bible lesson, the children will learn the power of prayer and to trust God in the good and bad times. Happy learning!

If you haven’t read the introduction to Bible Time yet, I recommend you read the outline about the Bible lessons for children first.

Bible Story Tips

  • During story, draw attention to the key concepts for this lesson.

  • Don't forget to ask questions related to the story, for example, “What law did the king make?”

  • Throughout the Bible lesson we reiterated how important it is to be obedient to God.

  • After the Bible story and discussion session, we stand up and do the interactive rhyme found in the Bible storybook


After the story and rhyme, we say a prayer that is related to the Bible story. You can either have your children repeat after you or allow them to come up with their own prayer.

Bible Song about Daniel and the lion's den

  • The Bible song for this week is "Angels Watching Over Me".
