GH15 is joining in a national call to prayer before the 2016 Elections:

As One – A National Appeal to Heaven 40 Days of Prayer Walking the Nation

Here is Today’s Focus:

Children (Children in Danger, Children Trafficking, and Orphans)

Jesus loved children. In Matthew 19:14 He said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Today we remember these innocent ones of society. Child prostitution and the trafficking of young children are on the rise in America. In addition, there are children in America who are without homes, food, and families. The children of America need our prayers today. Pray by name for children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews in your family. Extend your prayers to children in your neighborhood, your state, and the nation. Pray that Christian parents will raise their children to know and love the Lord. Pray for Christ-centered alternatives in TV programs, movies, video games, and music that will help build a child’s faith, rather than destroy it. And pray for international evangelistic programs that help share the Gospel and make disciples of children around the world.

Today’s Passages:

Matthew 18:2-5 “He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.’”

Deuteronomy 6:6-9 “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”
