Here's a tip for your ministry success!
Nothing helps the children under your
ministry as much as your
prayers. Think about it! It's your time with God in prayer for each
child that allows Him to guide you in ministering to their daily and
immediate needs. He knows exactly what is going on in their homes,
schools, neighborhoods, etc., so cover each of them with your prayers.
Create a prayer photo journal of the
children. During the rest of this
month, carry a camera around with you. Take time to be sure you have a
photo of each child. Put all of the pictures into an album and keep the
album with you. During your devotional and prayer times, pull out the
album and pray over several of the children individually. By spreading
the children out over the entire week or month, you'll be easily able to pray
of them. Plus, imagine how they will feel knowing that you spend time each
week praying specifically for them.
Other options--For the small group, you
may want to use a digital camera and put the kids pictures into your wallpaper
or screensaver. For the extra large group, consider recruiting some of
your senior citizens to join you in being prayer warriors for your kids.
Divide the pictures up into several albums, labeling the pictures with the
child's name, and give an album to each of your partner prayer warriors.
