prayer pail.

I can't take credit for this idea... I read about it here.
But we are loving it!

I made up most of the sticks, but the kids had a few more suggestions to add...
* Marley (dog)
* Chloe and Zoe (cats)
* Konley and Baby Cora (We talked again about how we don't need to pray for them anymore, because they are already in heaven. So then they wanted to add...)
* Russ and Jenny
* Joel and Jessica

So sweet.

The kids have been really into it so far and ask to do it before supper each night!
Some of my favorite prayers so far...

Please be with Chloe and Zoe and help them not throw up so much.

Please be with Sophie and help her not be sassy.

Thank you for all our neighbors and please help Craig and Miss Amy get home safe from their trip.

Thank you for all my cousins... John, Mary, Sarah, Cara and Maggie and next time they come visit us, please help the airplane driver to be safe.

Teaching the children to talk to God about every thing - small and big. Way to go! Cute idea!! Where did you see this idea?

very cute! Ava struggles some nights who she wants to pray for and we get impatient (which we shouldn't) so this is a perfect idea!!
