Prayer Changes Lives
Our children need parents to stand in the gap through prayer (Ephesians 6:12). Jesus called us to pray for our children because He hears our prayers and intercedes on their behalf before God (1 John 5:14, Romans 8:34). Please contact Kathleen Santos at (405) 818-2022 to join in prayer with others in making an eternal difference in the lives of our students.
