100 Days of Prayer

One of my new years resolutions was to build better habits, one of which was intentional, committed prayer for major things going on in my life. I didn't start to well, so I created this handy tool to help guide my course. So 11 days ago I began 100 days of prayer, asking God to get me back to 100% fully funded in 100 days.

And it got me thinking....You could use this with kids to help them pray for the world!
Here's what I did.
Step 1: Make a jar to place your prayer notes in. I used a cashew jar and just designed a label and glued it on.

Step 2: Create 100 prayer slips. I fit 6 on a page. I labled them Day 1 through 100. Then I just gave a kick off sentence, "Today I pray..."

Step 3: Each day, write out your prayer. I date my slips and fill them with my thoughts, prayers, lists, and verses God is speaking to me. You could use this to help your kids pray for the nations. You would write "Today I pray for China..." and then jot down some prayer points or journal them out (depending on age). Then place them in the jar!

I keep my jar and prayer cards where I can easily access them each day. I'm looking forward to looking back through them 100 days from now and seeing how God responded and worked!
