Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.
Psalm 119:18 ESV
This is a wonderful prayer to use every time we open God’s Word. I learned this verse at a Scripture Union camp in Peru. What you learn in our younger years stays with us. In fact, whatever we learn from the Word of God, at any age, is a treasure we store in our heart.
To assist in helping the children store God’s Word in their hearts, I will provide the Bible verse for the story as cards for printing and sharing. I hope you will be encouraged to use this tool to give the children a little card that they can carry with them and keep someplace safe. It will help them to meditate on the verse and hopefully memorize it. There is nothing more important than keeping the God’s Word in our heart.
