Prayer Box - Cardboard and Paint
One of the goals we have as a family is to include our kids in prayer more often. We plan on using this prayer box to help. When one of us has something specific we want to pray for, we will write it on a note card with the date and put it in the large part of the box. When we have prayer time, we can pick prayer cards out of the box and pray for specific needs. If the kids are restless, we can only pull out one card, or if they are focused, we can pull out several to pray for. When God answers prayers, I plan on writing it on the bottom of the cards with the date, so we can see how God is working in our lives. I'm excited to put this box in action!
The box is just a recycled one that something else was shipped in. After cutting off the flaps, I used one of them to make the divider, using hot glue to keep the it in place. Then my daughter Rebekah painted the box!
What tools are you using to teach your children to pray? I'd love to hear what's working for other families!
