Running to the store for groceries, school supplies, clothing, or maybe picking out a new toy is a commonality in most families. Many of the products we buy are made all over the world.
As you pick up items at the store, have your child look at the package or tag to see where it was made. Say a quick prayer that people in that country would know and follow Jesus. When you get home, locate some of these places on a world map. Which country is closest to yours? Which is furthest away? Do people there follow Jesus? Pick one country to continue praying for throughout the month.
Option: If your children do not go to the store with you, do this activity once you are home from the store and are putting the items away.
- Imagine the person who grew or made your product. Why do they live where they do and you live where you do? Read Acts 17:26.
- What’s the purpose of our family living in a place where we know the true God?
Pray that the people who live in the countries where your items were made would come to know and follow Jesus.
