Praying for Missionaries

Elaine learns about praying for missionariesI must confess that I have not been very consistent about praying for our missionaries.  I have tried several different “systems” to keep the prayer cards visible as a reminder, but nothing has succeeded. 

Recently I re-purposed a little basket and set it on the bookshelf.  I nestled the basket on the bookshelf near the dining room table.  We started having Elaine pick a card before each evening meal’s prayer.  She is addicted!  Elaine wants to get a card at breakfast and lunch, too.  She never lets us forget.

This morning I found Elaine “teaching” her baby doll to hold a prayer card in her hand.  She was so proud of herself!  And I’m glad that we finally found a system to help us consistently “hold the ropes” for those who are laboring at home and abroad in the Lord’s harvest fields!

  1. This is too cute and a very sweet idea :) BTW I just remembered that I need a new picture of Elaine for Kenny's office. If you've got time could you email one to me?
