Have each child send a National Day of Prayer care package
filled with goodies to a family in the armed forces. Have children
list the things they’re praying for them, such as for physical
protection as they defend freedom around the world and for comfort
as they’re separated from family and friends.
Items to include in a care package are a self-addressed stamped
envelope for them to return prayer requests, a picture of the
child’s family, a poem or Bible verse, a music tape or devotional
book, paper and pens, stamps, gum, or mints. Enclose a thank you
note telling them how much they’re appreciated.
Many churches maintain a list of military families from their
fellowship who serve in other countries. Or to find a military
family, contact the public information officer at a military base
