Super Easy Mini Prayer Booklets


A few days ago, we finally made our prayer books! We've had these on our "wish to-do" list for a while now. They are not anything fancy...  They each chose the paper and opening style of there own. For R's We took one 8x11 sheet of paper and cut into 4 equal pieces then just stapled them together. For M's we cut it in half longways and places them together then folded & stapled. His opened from the bottom-up. Both of them wanted a rainbow (of one wants it the other usually does....) Riley wasn't happy about how hers turned out, so I printed one off and she glued it on over her other. -gotta keep em happy ;) -

Here's How We Use Em':
Each morning before we start school & before we pray I ask for there prayer requests. We write them down and update any previous. We also are working on praising God as much as trusting in him. So they write praise reports and things God has done for them. I let them choose who or what they pray for. Sometimes I gently remind them "do we have someone that's sick/in the hospital we know?. Or Is there someone who needs some encouragement? Riley's first request was to ask God to help her pray better. (melted my heart!) & Mason's was for  Mom & Dad. (We were both sick this day....) 

So far they are filling up and both learning about asking for gods help and giving them the glory and praise when good things happen. I plan on letting them take them to Church and use them there too. We can always add more pages or just date & file it. Hope this gives you some ideas on how to make & use your own prayer books. 

Next round we may do prettier & sturdier ones! If so I'll add tutorial here! I have some ideas using my binding machine!
