Today I am sharing my friend’s Prayer Hands with a free printable. It’s a simple way to remind your kids of what is important and remind them off all that they have to be thankful for, not only during this time of year but all year through.
My dear friend Deanna is always coming up with awesome ways to teach her children to grow in His love. She also teaches Sunday School at her church and she is just a fantastic mother and friend.
A few weeks back, I was asking her for advice for the kids. I told her that our boys seem to just become so quiet, when it was their turn to pray out loud. (When we do our family devotion and prayer at night). They would whisper “You go first” to their brothers, or they would do a “thank you for my family, house, friends …….” prayer. I wanted them to dig a little deeper.
Deanna to the rescue! She let me borrow her son’s “prayer hands”. She made these with her kids and she has them use it at night, although they don’t need to once they have used them enough to remember.
It is a way to give them suggestions of what to pray for, while they are young, so that they can grow from this and learn it and expand on it as they get older.
Start out on your thumb, saying “I Pray”
So when the first one comes up, they will point to their pointer finger and say “Adore God. Lord, You are…”
For the second card, they will doing to their middle finger and say “Confess sins. Please forgive me…”
Keep going for each card (see the cards below)
