Paul wrote in II Corinthians 9:8, God is able to make all grace abound towards you so that in all things, at all times, having all you need you will abound in every good work. Initially I never thought the prayer cards would be used outside our church let alone around the world. What began with a vision for 50 children, God has turned into millions of children on 5 continents, and we believe this is only the beginning. He has given us a vision to reach every child globally with this simple prayer tool. By His grace and help we believe it is only a matter of time.
Working interdenominationally, through existing Kingdom-focused churches and networks is critical and effective in meeting this goal. The global church is uniting, rising up and seeing the importance of discipling children and engaging them in ministry so they understand their purpose: to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Children around the world are learning what it means to spend time with Jesus every day. They are growing strong in their faith as they commit to love God with their whole heart, soul, mind and strength and discover what it means to love others as themselves: compassionately and sacrificially.
One of the greatest faith-strengthening exercises for me has been the power of answered prayer. The Children’s Prayer Covenant is empowering children around the world as they not only experience answer to prayer but discover what it means to walk with Jesus, to experience His presence, His power and His unconditional love. I believe with all my heart that if we want to raise a generation of faithful Jesus followers and disciple makers we must model this for our children and youth. If every one of us are committed to daily living out the Great Commission and the Great Commandments, every child will come to experience the hope and love of Jesus. May His grace continue to abound towards us all so that in all things, at all times, having all we need, together, united, we will continue to abound in every good work for His glory and for His kingdom.
