PRAY FOR THE CHILDREN
This prayer is taken from Prayers that Avail Much by Germaine Griffin Copeland.
I personalized it. We stuck it in to a special mother’s day addition New Testament and gave it to the children to give to their mothers or grannies as a Mother’s Day gift.
I personally prayed this prayer for my daughter for many years and still do.
Put your child’s name in the lined space and start praying. Hand it out to others to pray for the children.
