A great idea for helping your kids choose people they want to pray for is by making a prayer hand craft. This craft not only allows your children to choose specific people but it also allows them remember who they chose. Our Cultivated Life has come up with the perfect idea! This is a simple and easy idea for helping little kids with prayers.
Start your conversation with sitting down and thinking through who your kids would like to pray for. Have them think of 10 people for each of their fingers. Then after that have them put their hands on a piece of paper and draw their hands. Next on each finger have them write one of the names. Cut out a little piece of paper with “People I’m Praying For” written on it. Then glue the hands to the small piece of paper.

After you have made the craft have them put it in a special and noticeable place. Then choose a time during the week when you can sit together and pray for all 10 people.
