A great resource for family prayer for the world

Window on the World, by Daphne Spraggett and Jill Johnstone, came with our curriculum a few years back (not sure which grade level - maybe 2nd), and it seems like I might have mentioned it here before, but I was reminded of it's value today when we read about Haiti and how to pray for that country. You can read a description of the book on the Sonlight site, or on Amazon, so I won't repeat that here, but do highly recommend it. Each 2-page spread covers quite a bit of information and includes beautiful photos, as well as suggested prayer points. We learned some key points about the history of Haiti, such as that it was the first Black republic and the slaves revolted for 13 years against the French before gaining independence in 1804. And that they have suffered under many dictators since that time. And that many practice voodoo.

  1. Isn't it amazing how often what you learn connects with stuff that's happening now? I find that encouraging! Thanks for sharing.
