December 19: Family Prayer Journal

*Wrap an empty photo journal for today's gift.
  • Read James 5:16.
"Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective."

  • Talk about prayer: when, why and how you pray.

  • Describe a time when you saw God answer a specific prayer. Reinforce the Scripture by emphasizing the power of prayer.

  • Let the children unwrap the gift (an empty photo album).

  • Explain that the photos received through Christmas greetings will be cut to size and placed in the album.

  • Tell the children that the pictures will then be used at prayer time.

  • Pray with your children. Ask God to show you His power as you pray for your family and friends through the coming year.
