A Prayer A Day

I recently discovered something very cool and am so excited to share it with you!

It's called Children of Destiny (you can click on the name) and I think you're really going to like it.

It was started by a husband and wife team, both ordained Christian ministers, when their son was diagnosed with autism in 2001.  The goal of their ministry is to bring God's hope, life, and restoration to families struggling with autism and related disorders, primarily through prayer.

Here's how it works -

First, you submit your email address.

Then, each and every day, 365 days a year, you are sent a prayer through email.

There are two prayers in each email - one for the parents of children with autism and one for the extended family and friends of those affected with autism.

The prayer includes a verse of Scripture.

In its most simple form, you can view the email, stop right then and there, and pray.

Or you can create your own Prayer Journal.  

There are Daily Prayer Journal Pages that include the daily prayer and Scripture, along with some space for you to record your own personal thoughts and feelings.  You can print these pages out each day, along with a prayer journal cover, and compile it all into a binder.  You then have a tangible record of your prayers, hopes, wishes, and dreams for your child.

Children of Destiny also offers a 30 minute weekly radio program, inspirational articles, bulletin inserts/handouts for Autism Awareness Month, as well as a special prayer thrust in the month of April and the opportunity to be a part of an Autism Strategic Prayer Network.

And the most incredible news?

It's all completely free.

I really think you will be so blessed by this ministry.  I know I have been multiple times already.

I am constantly amazed at the content of the prayers.  They are specific, hopeful, and a daily reminder that God is in control.  Click here for yesterday's prayer and you'll see what I mean.

Together, let's make a commitment to pray for all our children each and every day.   

After all, we're never stronger than when we're on our knees.


  1. Fight all your battles on your knees and you will win every time.Keeping a prayer journal is the best thing a Christian can do.

  2. I agree - prayer journals are so helpful for keeping our focus on the Lord and all He has done for us.
