Weekly Prayer Focus- Children's Ministry Leaders
Have you ever visited our Children's Ministry building during services? Rooms are filled with children-from infants to 6th graders-all being cared for and taught the word of God by a host of volunteers and dedicated staff. Often we have prayed for the children in our care and the adults who love them for an hour each Sunday. We should also focus on the ministry leaders who work all week in positions that God has appointed them; positions that uses their SHAPE (spiritual gifts) to bring Jesus to life for our kids! When you speak to them, you know they are excited about all that God is doing in our church and in our Children's Ministry.
Lift Billy Jack Blankenship, Paula Mazza, Jen Engelhardt, Jane Polese, and Kathie Bauer up in prayer this week, and every week. Let us pray for...
- Wisdom to follow God's vision for the ministry
- Perseverance, inspiration and guidance from God in making the decisions for the ministry
- Patience in all aspects of ministry
- Their spouses, children, and extended families.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4
