Some people think prayer is something you’re supposed to say before you eat or go to sleep. But it’s actually a lot more than that. We’re supposed to go to God for everything. A lot of things we think we can handle we can’t. We pretend we don’t need him on a daily basis. We only go to him for big things, but he wants us to pray to him everyday.
H.O.P.E stands for Hang On Pray Everyday. When things go bad in life, hang on and don’t let go. Don’t lose him. Hang on to him and talk to him everyday. Nothing makes God happier than when we pray and worship him. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing.” God wants us to never stop praying to him.
Devoted to prayer. That really caught me. Not just before eating or sleeping, but constantly. After you wake up, before school, during school, after school all the time. We are devoted to Jesus. He’s in our hearts, and we’re in his.
I’m dedicated to helping spread the message of hope, not just at church, but at school, around town, and even here online through my pre-teen section. So, it got me so excited to see there is a company out there doing just what I’m doing… only it’s through merchandise and charitable giving.
Hope In A Box
When my mom asked me if I wanted to check out this company selling products with an uplifting message, I was quite intrigued. I love spreading uplifting messages among my friends. She showed me a H.O.P.E t-shirt and backpack. This is definitely the kind of message I want to spread at school.
In fact, just the other day I was able to minister to two people who asked me about a bracelet I was wearing. The children’s minister at my church gave it to me I wore it that day. It brought so much joy to plant a seed for Christ. I think that’s why I love this company and what it was based on….Hope in Jesus Christ.
Send HOPE IN A BOX to someone special! Romans 12 LLC (aka HOPE IN A BOX LLC) offers gifts, clothing, and accessories with the goal of inspiring HOPE. Romans 12 LLC was founded on the idea that all of us, some time or another, suffer with daily challenges, difficulties, or crisis in our lives. It is during these times, that we might need a reminder of God’s presence and His plan for us. The H.O.P.E. (Hang On Pray Everyday) line of products and gift boxes have been developed to remind us to ‘HANG ON’ to the promises made by God in scripture: that He will meet our needs (Phil 4:19), how He is with us and will help us (Isaiah 41:10), how He is our Rock, Salvation, Defense, and Fortress (Psalm 62:6) and to ‘PRAY EVERYDAY’ to Christ who loves us, so that He can lovingly guide us in this challenging time.

How do you spread hope in YOUR community? If you’re a pre-teen, like myself, I want to hear from you! I love meeting new friends and I’d love to collaborate with you if you’re actively spreading the message of hope.
Disclosure: My mom partnered with Hope In A Box and I received a free shirt and backpack, but my opinions are always my own. Getting free products will never ever influence what I say here. Why? Because I want to be real with you guys always. I want to build online friendships and share my writing… not because I like free stuff, but because I love the idea of building a community through my writing.
