JOY Prayer Cards
Do you ever get tired of hearing the same rote prayers uttered by your children? Do you find yourself desiring a better way to teach them to truly pray?
I know I sure did. I couldn't take one more "thank you for this day" prayer so I created these prayer cards. The goal was to help my kids have ideas they could reference as they prayed. I realized that their prayers were the same because they needed me to teach them the kinds of things to pray for.
The JOY prayer cards have been an invaluable resource for doing just that. Are you ready to give your kids the tools they need for a deeper and more meaningful prayer life? Let's do it!
A wonderful addition to any home, the JOY Prayer Cards are a complete set of 28 cards organized into four themes, each lasting for one week: my family, my community, my nation, and my world. Each card emphasizes the JOY formula for praying: J-Jesus, O-others and Y-yourself. They come in a sturdy gift box that is perfect for daily use.
These super thick and high-quality cards encourage prayer through suggestions and scripture. I have designed them specifically with multi-ages in mind. Parents can use the cards with young children, praying and reading through them as a family. As children get older, they have the freedom to use the cards to support their own prayer life.
For this digital file, simply print the cards out and cut apart. The cards can be used on an O-ring so you can easily flip through them. You can also use them in a 4×6 index card box. If you already use this kind of box for scripture memory, you can add a section for the cards. I would recommend that you consider printing on card stock, as they will be sturdier (card stock can be purchased at Wal-mart or an office supply store). You also might consider laminating them. The cheapest place to do that is a teacher supply store, but you can also do it at an office supply store.
