Second-grade Students at SAS Pray for 120 Families

Students in Lisa Dills' second-grade class at Skagit Adventist School have completed their first ever "Prayer Tree."

The tree was a visual display of their prayers for each family represented at the school. The class began praying for one family from each grade each week.

During daily class prayer time the students would pray for the names of those families and then place a leaf on the tree with that family's name on it. Throughout the school year, the second-graders prayed for more than 120 families.

The Prayer Tree was displayed in the hallway that leads to the playground so that it was a constant reminder of the many, many people who are involved with supporting the school and the children.

Cards explaining the project were mailed to each family. It was truly special and amazing for the students to hear back from people who thanked the students for their prayers.

The class used Ephesians 3:14-21 for inspiration in creating a school Prayer Tree.
