Idea:  I wanted to pass along what I had put together based off the 31 Biblical Virtues to Pray for Your Children included in past months’ (Ladies Prayer International) newsletters. I’ve been reading about and learning to pray the Word and how effective that can be. So with the 31 Biblical Virtues, I created a document with all of them and then added blanks to personalize each prayer with our own children’s names. This might be helpful for some or for our prayer groups to concentrate on one virtue each month, expound on the scriptures and pray that for every child in our churches. -Eva Chase, Christian World Fellowship, Salem, OR
