Good morning, Father.

During 2017 help me to be faithful in my prayer walk. It is most important that we who serve preschoolers remember to pray for the next generation. Teach me how to pray blessings for these children and their families.

I love teaching preschoolers, especially Bible stories. Their simple childlike faith shown in their faces as they listen reveals hearts open to the gospel, and I am overwhelmed with this honor of sharing. My four-year-olds who are turning five, love the story of Jesus and the little children found in Mark 10:13-16. We begin the story by pretending to get ready because Jesus is coming! We act out getting dressed, combing our hair, eating breakfast, brushing our teeth and then off we go to see Jesus. But it is crowded and we can’t see Jesus. Even His disciples prevent us from getting close. But Jesus says, “Let the little children come to Me” (Mark 10:14). And we are overjoyed!

To receive Jesus’ blessing, touch, laughter, and nearness leaves you never the same. Always better! Are there children you need to bring to Jesus? Little ones, adults, or what about yourself? No matter what age, there is strength in the arms of Jesus. Remember that He cares about you and loves you unconditionally. He wants you to trust Him. Bring to Him in prayer your little ones, your adult children, or yourself. Do it now and do it often. Jesus always says, “Let the children come to Me!”

In the powerful name of Jesus, great Shepherd of the sheep,
