Children’s Prayer Cube

This post contains an affiliate link. I purchased a Prayer Cube as a Christmas gift for each family in our children’s ministry a couple of years ago.  Each side has a short prayer, usually very formulaic. The draw in using these isn’t so much in saying the specific short prayers, but in getting your kids […]

I Can Pray Craft

Another activity for our hands-on prayer lesson was making these “I Can Pray When I…” spinning wheels.  The design comes from Crafting the Word of God.  It has pictures for when a child is eating, washing dishes, going to bed, and playing.  It helps kids realize that they can talk to God anytime, not just […]

Repurposed Bulletin Board into Prayer Board

We recently put up a prayer board at church where people can share their prayer requests.  I had a very large bulletin board sitting at home that was perfect for this.  The only problem was that our dog had chewed a bit on  the frame and on a little bit of the cork.  To remedy […]

Saying Grace: A Prayer of Thanksgiving by Virginia Kroll

This post contains an affiliate link. I’ll be bringing this book along for Sunday School tomorrow.  I’ll be with the younger kids, and I’m not sure we’ll get to it, but we’ll try.  Saying Grace is a good book for the fall/Thanksgiving season.  The text length is moderate, so it could work for younger kids, […]
