Featured Prayer: Year in review

"Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up" (Deuteronomy 11:18-19).

Jesus, you said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Thank you for allowing our synod to build an early childhood learning center where children are being brought to you—as well as your precious truths being taught to the students who will teach preschool children throughout the world. Forgive us for our sinful pride and help us to remember that it is you that has moved us to share your good news with others . . . even the very young. It is because of your perfect life and innocent death that we can look forward to an eternal paradise with you. Help us to continue to share your message with others. Amen.
