meaning of perseverance The lie of poverty can convince children to just give up because there is no hope for their lives. Pray that God would fill your sponsored child with perseverance and that they would set their eyes above on the things that last.

“Lord, teach my children perseverance in all they do, and help them especially to run with perseverance the race marked out for them.”

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” –Hebrews 12:1, NIV
