Teach Your Children to Pray for Others
Live It – Romans 1:8-10
“First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world. God, whom I serve in my spirit in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God’s will the way may be opened for me to come to you.”
Paul had never been to Rome but he prayed for the Christians there “constantly” and “at all times.”
Get the address of a missionary family your church helps to support. Write and ask them to send you letters about their work. When you pray at bedtime, pray for that missionary family as well as for your won family and friends.
