Many clubs have a God Can or a Jesus Can for the kids to put their prayer requests in. In my club I have a Prayer Bear that receives the written requests from the kids. Here is where I will post some of those requests. Please lift these prayers to the throne of Grace. Some requests will be from children of other clubs. Names and club details are omitted for privacy protection but God knows who they are.
One girl is asking for prayer because she is having her tonsils removed. Several other children echoed that prayer.
One child wants prayer for two of his dogs who are in heaven. Please pray for his peace.
Another child gets angry too much and wants prayer for that. "Plees help me Lord I need hlep I git angree to much"
"Dear God I hope that Mrs. Morris is done with cancer. Amen."
"For my baby brother."
"Thank you for making all the amls" (animals).
"Who is God in history?"
"I love you and you love me"
"Dear God can you please help my friend and family, can you please help diego. In jesus name. amen"

1/26/2017 Prayer Bears are back in use and children are requesting the following this week:
My cough to go away
A good home
To skate well
No pain while getting tonsils removed.
I would personally ask for specific prayers for the darling little churched children in the clubs, that they would spend less time trying to tell the teachers what they already know and more time listening to what they can learn and then applying it.
One girl in a club expressed that her family believes in Jesus but they only go to church for Christmas and Easter. Please pray that God will draw them into a church family for regular meeting with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
7/18/2016 We are using the Prayer Bear in our 5-Day Clubs, taking prayer requests from the children. This past week in our three clubs we got many requests for health issues. One grandma is going in for a third surgery, one aunt has cancer, one cousin is sick and one baby has a fever.
One child is asking for a visit from Grandma. Four of the children are asking for prayers for a friend of theirs who just lost her mother!!!
This last one says, "Please pray about my adopted brother, he is back with his mom and she does drugs. I'm worried about him.
Please take the prayers of these little ones to our Heavenly Father.
Please pray for my brother, he broke his foot.
Please pray for safe travel for my mom.
Child: Give my sister strength so that she can know God is with her. Give her husband strength to have faith in God that if he tells the police who actually did what he is being accused of that he and his family won't get hurt.
Child: I pray that my friend's brother will get help in rehab, mostly that he will stay there and get over drugs and alcohol. Give his family the faith and hope that God is working so that one day they can be a family that serves God. I believe that and I pray that they will too.
We are getting a lot of prayer requests from children with pregnant moms asking for healthy babies. Please be praying for their requests for healthy babies but also for peace for these children and their parents.

I visited a club today and two girls wanted prayer for their uncle who was in a motorcycle accident and has a broken leg and nose.
One girl wants prayer for her great, great, grandfather who is 104 years old. She does not want him to die. He does know Jesus so please pray for this girl's peace in knowing that he is going Home.
Please pray for the workers in this club to get some help and for God to give them wisdom in running this club. Also please pray for God to be working in the hearts of these children. There were many kids with serious attitude and behavior problems making for a stressful environment. We have no idea what life is like in the homes of these children to cause such behavior so please be praying.
