Testimony for The Prayer Covenant for Children
My name is Pascal. I’m 15 years old. I have gone through the themes of Prayer Covenant in my local church. We have been taught the ten prayer themes in our Sunday school class for 10 months, one theme per month. And before that, we were in Prayer Covenants with each other several times since our teachers organized our Sunday school classes in Prayer Covenant teams. That helped me a lot and changed my life. I used to fight with my siblings all the time, but since then, I often find myself laughing when issues come up and am the one that always try to reconcile my siblings when they misunderstand each other. It’s wonderful! I realized that I went from always wanting to argue and fight to being calm and quiet. I bless the Lord for that and pray He will continue to allow me to influence not only my siblings but also my classmates with the peaceful character I received through the teachings of Prayer Covenant. Prayer is transformational and it has transformed me.
We love receiving these testimonies from our leaders because it clearly demonstrates the power of prayer and the importance of teaching our children to pray. Prayer is transformational and when we spend time in the presence of Jesus, we become more like him. II Corinthians 3:18 reads, And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
Let’s pray. Dear Heavenly Father, thank you that in you we live and move and have our being. Thank you that you have written your laws on our hearts. Give us hearts that beat after yours, that pursue godliness and holiness. Continue to transform us into your image by the power of your Holy Spirit; transform us by the renewing of our minds that we may prove what is good and acceptable and your perfect will. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
