Today, let’s pray for the 5-9 year old boys who will be receiving “shoeboxes” this year. What a good age in which to learn about Jesus and to make a decision to follow him for a lifetime! Remember to pray for the family too. Many family members are led to the Lord because of a child this age who has an opportunity to learn and then share the Good News!





There are many ways to be used by the Lord. Today might be a good take to cook or bake something to share.
