Ask God to bless the labors of local volunteers who serve year-round to collect, process, transport, and deliver shoebox gifts around the world.


Pray that the Lord will use Operation Christmas Child to bring joy to boys and girls in developing countries who face difficult circumstances such as poverty, disease, famine, and war.


Pray that every child who receives a shoebox gift will have the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Pray that every girl and boy who receives a shoebox will experience God’s unconditional love and provision through the gifts they receive.


Pray for the children who enroll in The Greatest Journey follow-up discipleship program, that they will come to faith in Jesus and share the Good News with their friends and family.


Pray for the safety of Operation Christmas Child volunteers who are serving in areas of the world where people may be hostile toward Christians
