As a family we pray often - we pray before our meals, we pray before we go to bed, we pray when we sin and repent, and often we will pray on our way to places. But I realized that one weak area of praying with our children is praying for others.
So often we thank God and we pray for things that would help us and bless our family (like for a safe trip to Grandma’s, or for good friends), but often we forget to pray for others.
As parents, we are charged with teaching our children a lot of things, and one is how to love others. One way we love others is to pray for them.
The Bear & Squirrel Prayer Calendar is a great tool to help us teach our children to pray for others!
How to use the Calendar:
Each month pick someone to pray for and write down their name and interests on the calendar
Each day has a Bible verse and a prayer prompt to pray for your buddy
Each month encourages us to encourage our friend we are praying for
The calendar has beautiful, whimsical graphics, fun facts that point to God’s glory and is interactive for the family.
There is even room on each day to write other things like appointments or events.
