I 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!
