I loved this idea when I first saw it...prayer & kids...how much better can it get?! Mawmaw came home from another outing with a bag of popsicle sticks and I had just decided to save the empty jar of pizza sauce (if you know my mother in law, then you know that me saving a jar made her smile really big).
So, one sunny afternoon (today) the girls and I set out in the front yard and made our prayer sticks. I wrote several different prayers on a stick and let the girls color them. They had lots of fun. Each night, as a family, we will each draw a prayer stick out of the jar and pray for that specific person, place, or group of people.
I am hoping that this will teach the girls - and someday Creek - that there are so many more things than our food that we can pray for :)

Our prayer sticks - they mostly colored the back of them.
