Teaching children how to pray for missionaries is not always easy, but here are a 3 things to help.
Give the children Prayer Maps from Every Home for Christ. They are free and will give the children areas of the world to pray for every day of the month.
Teach the children what to pray. You can’t go wrong if you teach children to pray for missionaries to have boldness, for their safety, and for God to meet their needs. Here are verses to go with those prayers.
Boldness: Acts 4:28-29 But everything they did was determined beforehand according to your will. And now, O Lord, hear their threats, and give us, your servants, great boldness in preaching your word.
Safety: Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of Me,” says the Lord.”
Meeting Needs: Philippians 4:19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Teach children about specific missionaries. The more children know about real missionaries, the more likely they are to pray for them. This Assemblies of God site has stories about missionaries. You can also find some stories at this site about Christian children in non-Christian countries.
Revival is spreading throughout the nation among children. That’s what this ministry is all about, to help children’s leaders and pastors bring their students into revival. We are still booking children’s revivals, teacher training, and children’s ministry consultations this year.
For more information about booking Revival Fire for Kids, click the tab you’re interested in from the menu about or email me at revivalfire4kids [at] att [dot] net.
Here are a few pictures of our last children’s revival this past week.
Revival Fire for Kids wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Many Christians are praying for revival, but they relegate children to have a fun game night or have them watch a movie while the prayer meeting is going on. History has shown that whenever God moves in a powerful way, He always includes the children. Here’s a video from 4/14 Window Movement about the history of children in revival. This is a must watch for every children’s pastor.

Revival Fire for Kids Blog has been going strong for six and 1/2 years now. I have attempted to offer information that would equip children’s pastors and leaders at least 3 times a week unless I was traveling. I can’t keep up this regular pace because I am currently working on year 1 of Revival Fire 4 Kids Curriculum. So unless there is something important I need to share or a resource I want to showcase, I will cut my posts down to once a week, usually on Mondays. Thanks for your understanding and prayers as I embark on this new adventure to off resources that are helpful.
