WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO #SHAREYOURPRAYER

Make it real: Help people realize that more than 680,000 children are abused and neglected each year; some are probably from your community.

Make it creative: There are no rules. Say your prayer directly into the camera, use motion graphics, use actors and music, and/or share personal experiences. The possibilities are endless.

Make it inspiring, with a call-to-action: Your #ShareYourPrayer video is a powerful expression and should encourage people to take action. Direct viewers of your video to http://shepherdingthenextgeneration.org/bluesunday to learn how they can protect vulnerable kids.
