RE:  What Jesus did to save us?  Another story from the Old Testament, Daniel and the Lions.  How does this story from the Bible make you feel?  How does the story relate to our world today?  What did Daniel do to protect himself?  How can prayer help us all in our world today?  Create your own prayer to God about keeping us safe.
