My 8-year-old was stuck in a "give us a great day" prayer rut. Last night we didn't have the ACTs cards handy. But he told God he was thankful for fish that change male to female and back (oldy specific but from a science book and something that made his 8 yr old heart sing). The cards are a beautiful prompt for the 6&8-year-old. But they're also a tool for developing prayers that are coming from the heart. I love the ACTs cards!!
These prayer cards provide perfect prompts for my prayer time. I tried the NC prayer journal, but the layout was awkward for me and I just couldn’t get into a groove with it unfortunately. I use these prayer cards in my own blank lined journal and they are wonderful! I’m able to have a meaningful prayer time, without feeling tied down to the specific layout of the prayer journal (which is beautifully made, even if not practical for my usage). Love the cards!
My husband and I have been working on our prayers and began looking for resources to have more meaningful prayers but found it a bit difficult to use those resources with our kids. We love that these cards break down into bite size pieces the basic idea of what our resources teach but in a way that kids can understand.
Love the ACTS Cards. A great tool to help our Family and our day to start and think on how to be intentional in communicating to our God.
Our family loved the JOY cards a few years ago, a great resource/tool for family devos. We are excited to incorporate the ACTS cards into family devotions once a week!
I love the ACTS cards. It's a great way to teach kids how to pray.
It's so easy for kids to say the same thing every time they are asked to pray during family devotions or at mealtime. These cards help our kids to break out of that habit. They are also helpful for parents because the cards remind us to pray for a variety of people (homeless, military, police, single parents, etc.) whom we might not always think to include in our prayers. We own both the JOY and ACTS cards, which means we have 59 different cards to use during our prayer times. I liked these so much that I bought a second set for my sister's family.
We use these daily during our breakfast prayer time! I LOVE them. Each day a different kid picks a card looks up the scripture and shares it with the family and offers a prayer based on the card. In conjunction with the In the Garden study it is giving them extra confidence praying God’s word and praying aloud.
These cards are great for guiding my 8 year old through prayer. She was struggling knowing what to pray for. We have incorporated one each day into our morning meeting. They have made our prayers less repetitive and mundane. They are very simple and easy to read statements.
