Day 8: Safe Places

Imagine if your child didn’t have a place to play.

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” — Psalm 46:1-3

Has this helped you commit to pray for children to live and play in safe places?
