Children’s Prayer Journal http://www.wycliffe.org/Kids/FreeCurriculum/PrayerLessons.aspx
“I am praying to You because I know You will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray” (Psalm 17: 6, NLT).
Praise God that children love to pray. After two years of hard work, the colorful Children’s Prayer Journal is available for download on Wycliffe USA’s free curriculum web page for kids. The prayer journal allows children to pray for twelve different language communities featured in the book From Akebu to Zapotec. Using the acrostic “A.C.T.S” (adoration, confession, thanksgiving and supplication) kids pray through designated Scripture verses for these communities. They also pray for a missionary and record their requests and answers, keeping a keychain tag and bookmark nearby as reminders to pray. Teachers who field-tested the journal said kids were highly motivated by it and formed good prayer habits within one month of repeated use! With the free resource page being the fourth most-viewed page on the entire Wycliffe USA website in June 2008, the journal is meeting a felt need!
- Praise God that He answers children’s prayers just like He answers adults’ prayers!
- Pray that teachers who download the journal will raise up a great prayer force to help accelerate the pace of Bible translation.
