Our Prayer Jar
I love blog world. I find so many neat ideas from other faith-filled moms! This one came from another family who is also adopting through AGCI. The kids and I ( mostly the kids) made our first Prayer Jar yesterday. Now we need to use it. My plan is for the kids, and Jon and I too, to write down people and things we want to pray for and then choose one time during the day, either supper or bedtime to pray the requests.
As a family we have been much better at bringing our requests to the Lord over the last couple of years. This is just a way to remind us daily and have some fun in the process! If you can't read it on the picture it says" the JOY of Family Prayer. We used a plastic peanut butter jar, cut-up tissue paper, clear glue and letters cut out from magazines- simple and fun!
I am a 40 year old wife to an amazingly wonderful husband, mom to 4 beautiful and spirited children, 3 from the belly, one from the heart, a princess of God, and I am striving to live my life for Christ, the way the Lord intended. My life has changed drastically since I began to follow the passage "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart" Psalm 37:4.
