Prayer Baskets

Praying With Your ChildA Prayer Basket is a simple, concrete way to keep track of prayer requests and praises. Here’s how to use one:

Fill a basket or container with writing utensils and paper (index cards or sticky notes work well). Be sure to keep it someplace central! As prayer requests or praises come up, encourage your child to add them to the basket (young children can draw a picture or dictate their ideas). At the end of the day or the week take them out and pray together.

*As a follow-up, tape answered prayers into a notebook along with the date. It’s great to look back and see all the ways God responds to our prayers!
