Happy Friday! I want to share with you today an easy and simple idea that you can use as you pray for others. This idea started several years ago when I got a stack of index cards and a list of family and friends. The kids wrote a name on each of the cards, decorated them and then each morning during our Bible time, we would pick the top card and pray for that person that day.
I often wished that we had an easy way to tell those friends and family that they had been the person of the day and that we had prayed for them. It’s always so encouraging to learn that someone is praying for you! And in a world saturated with texting, email and instant messaging, handwritten snail mail is a rare treat.
So yesterday, I finally sat down and created prayer postcards. I had been wanting to make these for our family for a while, and you all were just the motivation I needed to go ahead and do this project. They are two-sided and can be printed on card stock. Four postcards will print out on each 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
If your family is like ours, we have many friends going through serious issues right now that we are regularly praying for. We also have family members that we pray for as well as missionaries, our pastor and staff at our church.
The front of the card has room for a short note or a work of art created by your kids. You could also print them as notes (without the address side on the back) and tuck them into a lunch box, a college care package or a gift bag.
I hope you can use and enjoy these! Click on the link below the image to download. Have a great weekend and enjoy your Sunday.
P.S. We printed on white card stock, but colored paper might be fun as well.
