Oh, mamas with war rooms, you’re going to love this one! Today’s activity is ALL about prayer, and you’ll get to “build” a prayer wall right in your own home.
Your building materials don’t even require a trip to Home Depot. All you need is index cards and crayons, and maybe magazines. Even kids too young to read can be part of it. Although younger kids will dive right in with very little encouragement, older kids might need a little more prodding. There are plenty of ways to “grow up” the prayer wall idea, though. Consider a cool prayer journal, art pad, or a paper graffiti/tagging wall for older kids.
What I love about this activity is that it doesn’t end at the end of the evening. It can go on as long as you like. Just have a wall set apart for this purpose, whatever size is good for your home. In fact, the longer you keep it up, the more meaningful it will be.
As prayers are answered, you can mark them a special way. Or you might remove them and keep them tied together in a prominent place as a visual testament to God’s faithfulness.
