I have an activity for you today. If you have kids I encourage you to do this with them (I plan on doing it after naptime). There are millions of children around the world who are in desperate need of food, clothing, and a solid education. It is crucial for us, to be aware of this need, to pray for these children, and to take part in making a difference in their lives.
Here is what I encourage you to do:
1. Visit this site: Sponsor a Child
2. Pick three children on the page (or all of them if you have the time!) I am going to pick a few girls that are the same ages as my own girls.
3. Pray for these children every day this week. Write their names down and stick them on your refrigerator or set a reminder on your phone. Pray for sponsorship, for protection, for that child to know Jesus.
4. Discuss with your family the option of sponsoring a child. What an incredible way to teach children (young and old) to give of themselves for the good of another person.
Compassion International’s goal is to raise awareness during September and to see thousands of children receive new sponsorships. Will you join them? Even if a financial commitment isn’t possible, praying for these children is free.
I’m looking forward to doing this with the girls when they wake up from naps this afternoon. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to join me.
