Keep his decrees and commands, which I am giving you today,

so that it may go well with you and your children after you

and that you may live long in the land the Lord your God gives you for all time.

~Deuteronomy 4:40~

Pray for our church youth and kids in all the area churches. They are having VBS, going to camp, day camps, Vacation Bible Schools, etc. Encourage churches as they minister to so many in so many ways. What a difference they make – an eternal difference! Thank God for youth ministers and volunteers who see the benefits for the children and youth. Also, pray for the children who miss out on all these opportunities. May we be instrumental in guiding them to participate in these activities.
