Prayer Box

Do you remember I said to save the Christmas cards with photos? What? You forgot? Quick! Run to the recycling and fish them all out again. And feel free to go ahead and print off the ones you got by email from people who saved the planet / gave to charity / left it too late.

Now go find a sturdy shoe box. Or any box that's the right size to fit the cards. Decorate it if you like - or ask the kids to. When you're happy, put all the cards in the box. At breakfast, or supper, or whenever you're regularly together, take the top card out of the box and pray for those people together. When you're done, put it at the bottom of the pile. And then next day you pray for the next lot. You can do more than one card, of course. Since not everyone sends photo cards, you might like to add photos of friends and family members, or index cards with their names, or whatever works best for you. You know what's extra lovely? Sending a quick message or email to the person / people you prayed for to let them know you asked for God's blessing on them.
