Today’s Prayer Focus – Decisions in VBS

As the summer continues to roll by and more and more churches complete VBS, pray for the children who are making decisions to treasure Jesus in their heart. It’s the biggest decision they will ever make. Pray for churches to encourage and support them in their new life.
