Sarah Malam is a teacher and an artist who recently painted “Together We Win” a painting representing children blowing away the coronavirus. The idea came early on to Sarah during the COVID-19 crisis to paint children blowing away the virus as it is a unique moment in history for the younger generation to stand up for and serve those who are older and more vulnerable.
The painting is meant to bring encouragement and hope during this time. The children in the painting represent the nations and the wind represents what God is already doing! She believes that if the nations of the world come together and do their part to partner in what God is already doing, COVID-19 will be defeated.
When we harness our child-like spirit all of our thoughts, words, and actions are able to shift and color atmospheres. Just like in this painting, if we can become like children, we will see heaven come to earth. Even when we feel powerless, our thoughts, words and actions have the power to bring massive change! Let’s become like children!
“Together We Win” has sparked an incredible desire for us all to partner with Holy Spirit in what he is doing on the earth today in our children and our families. We asked Sarah to share a few ways she believes we can teach our children that God is speaking to them and wanting them to partner with him during this time:
Recognize that God has been speaking the whole time and begin to get curious as to what He is speaking to your children! Ask them what dreams they are having at night and help them understand how their dreams are related to what God is speaking!
Prophetic paintings are a great way to teach your children how to hear from the Lord! After your children are done painting and you’ve discussed what God was saying to them, go on a walk in your neighborhood and ask God who could use some encouragement today! Spreading hope in your community is a great way to show your children that God tenderly cares for everyone!
Children have a unique anointing from God when they speak, pray and worship. Ask your children which country they’d like to pray for each day and spend 5 minutes a day praying for that country!
Have your children write down the characteristics of God on a piece of paper and parade around the house together holding up the signs declaring how good God is! Your children are so powerful and their words make a massive difference!
During this unprecedented time, let’s partner with Holy Spirit to see heaven’s provision come and God’s will done on earth through our children and our families!
And remember, “Together We Win!”
