Summer is such a great time to be intentional with your kids! There are Vacation Bible Schools, summer camp programs, and church events that can all help your child grow in his faith. But nothing will help your child grow in his faith more than a daily time with God . . . a time where he learns to dig into the Word on his own and to talk with God through prayer.
Getting your child to do that, however, can be tough.
Often our children don’t know what to read or how to pray. This is one of the reasons you will find the prayer calendars and Bible reading plans on my site. I know how difficult it can be to help a child develop his own time with God. (In all honesty, it’s pretty difficult for many of us adults, too.) It is my hope that the calendars will help your child (and family) develop a stronger prayer life and will help your child pray those BIG prayers and recognize the global impact he can have from his own home through the power of prayer!
So print off the calendar for June, use it as a guide, and help your child make a difference this month through prayer.
