With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:18, NASB)
Your prayers are essential to the work of Operation Christmas Child. Our goal this year is to collect 11 million shoebox gifts from the United States and nine other countries. During National Collection Week, Nov. 16-23, we will pray for the people packing the boxes, the volunteers who will be collecting, processing, and delivering the gifts, and for the children receiving them.
