It is very important to focus on prayer needs outside of your home as well as within. Here are some ideas to get your family started in community prayers.
Local church leadership. Find out if the leadership has any prayer requests. Pray for them and make cards to let them know the kids have prayed. Take pictures of each leader in your church and put it in a little book for the kids to use as a prayer tool.
Prayer walk or drive. 'Every place where you set your foot will be yours.' This promise was given to us in Dueteronomy 11:24. Walk or drive around your community. Ask your children to notice what the area is like and what is happening on the streets. Begin to bind bad things up and loose good things in its place.
Virtual prayer walk. You can take pictures or make pictures using clip art of things in your area and put them ont he walls. Walk to each of the pictures and pray for any needs your kids can think of for that picture.
Schools. Get a picture of the schools your kids attend. Either you or your kids can find out the names of the administration and the teachers. Pray for them individually.

Once again, if you use any of the above activities with your children this week, take a photo and send it to me with a description of how your prayer time went to: firstname.lastname@example.org If you don't want to send in photos, just leave a comment below on how it all went.
The give away this week is a book pack of Christian books for kids. They range from books for very young to books for teenagers. I have 2 to give away and there are about 6 books in each pack. Sorry, no photo today as my camera is in Indonesia!
It is SO important to not let this kind of teaching only come from Sunday School once a week. Make it a priority, and make it a constant thing to do together!
