VERSE OF THE MONTH
PARENTS IN PRAYER

The monthly prayer focus for March is "Communication."

Pray for an open and honest source of communication with each relationship.

Pray for the ability to listen and identify God's voice. Pray for friends and family.

Pray for your child's future mate. Pray that your child will not settle for anything that God has not planned for him or her.

Pray for parents to be wise in conversations as parent/child relationships also are changing and growing into adult relationships.
