Five Ways to Pray for your Sponsored Child

As a sponsor, I truly aspire to pray regularly for my two sponsored children.  But praying for a child I've never met is not easy for me.  I find it much easier to pray for the pressing immediate needs that are right in front of my face.  Too often, my prayers for little Marie and Marcellus are vague and short—"God bless them ....
