How to Pray Cards Giveaway

I think one of the hardest things for people to wrap their mind around is talking to God.

It seems strange to speak to someone that you can't see, and it can make you feel awkward and inadequate.

Is anybody else agreeing with me???

A couple of years ago my sister made me a set of Prayer Cards for Mother's Day.  It was called How to Pray for Your Children.  It was a set of 15 laminated note cards, each one with a prayer suggestion and a coordinating scripture.

For example, one of them says:
Pray that they will be caught when guilty and that discipline will lead them to repentance.

And then the scripture is:
"It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees." Psalm 119:71

She also made a set for my mom called How to Pray for Your Grandchildren.  Like me with my calendars, Molly had no intention when she made these cards of creating a product... she just wanted some nice Mother's Day gifts for the mothers in her life.  But my mom and I were blown away, and started showing them to friends.


Pretty soon, the orders started rolling in and Molly began creating sets for several different topics, many of which were special requests from customers.

How to Pray with Your Child
How to Pray for Your Grown Children
How to Pray for Your Students
How to Pray for Your Teachers
How to Pray for Your Husband
How to Pray for Your Wife
How to Pray for a Birthmother
{which I currently have in my nightstand}
How to Pray for Your Pastor
How to Pray for Your Sponsored Child
How to Pray for Your Graduate
How to Pray for Your Soldier/Marine/Sailor/Airman
How to Pray in Challenging Times
How to Pray on the Mission Field

She also created a line of Memory Verse Cards:
God’s Word for New Moms
God's Word for a Mom's Heart
God’s Word for a Child’s Heart
God’s Word for a Teen’s Heart
God's Word for Training Your Child's Heart - Volume 1
God's Word for Training Your Child's Heart - Volume 2
God’s Word for Your Sponsored Child
God’s Word for the Graduate
God’s Word in Challenging Times
God's Word for a Soldier's/Marine's/Sailor's/Airman's Heart

She is constantly working on new titles, and loves getting suggestions from people that are struggling with a particular situation in their life.  She is working on How to Pray When Your Womb is Empty... inspired by yours truly. 

She can also personalize the sets:


My sweet, sweet sister {yes, she is the sweet one... just ask my mom}has taken the summer off to spend more time with her family, but she's ready now to get back to work!

  13. I would definitely have a hard time choosing which prayer cards I would like...maybe during difficult times...or for my husband, or airmen. They all seem to fit together when he is deployed!

  14. I would love to win "how to pray for your children". Sometimes i just need a little more structure and seeing it on paper will help me to do it more. That is my job as a parent, to cover my children in prayer, and that i dont do often enough.

  31. I sometimes struggle to find the words. I realize that God knows my heart but somehow, saying them aloud makes me feel more connected to Him. And having corresponding verses - your sister is a genius!

  32. After looking at your sister's shop, I still can't decide.....either "God's Word for Training Your Child's Heart"....that's always a big concern of mine; or "How to Pray for Your Husband" - as the head of the household, he needs my prayers!
