I saw this great idea on Pinterest, my newest love, and had to share it. It’s SIMPLE, which I love and it’s REAL, which I also love.
In our home we make it a point to pray for our family members, the ones in our house and the ones far away. We pray for our friends, even our little friends, and the needs that they have expressed to us. Although we love doing this and look forward to it, it can sometimes become redundant, people can sometimes fall through the cracks, or we can sometimes get sidetracked and forget to pray all together.
Until…. I found this wonderful, cute, creative, and SIMPLE way to remind us to be praying for those we hold dear. A prayer bucket full of prayer sticks! I was NOT the creative genius behind this idea so I must give credit where credit is very much due. This grand idea came from the wonderful blog, Melissa’s Projects. Thanks so much Melissa for the inspiration!
Is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen?!?!!!
Here’s what you do:
1. Get out a handful of popsicle sticks. If you don’t have any (we have oodles of them) they sell a big pack at the dollar store.
2. Write the name of a different friend or family member on each stick.
3. Cut out a small picture of each friend or family member.
4. Glue the picture of your friend or family member to the stick with their name on it.
5. Stick them in a bucket.
That’s it! Easy, huh?! I am so excited to make this for our family and purposefully put our prayer bucket in the center of our table. Not only is it adorable, but a very real way to be reminded daily to be praying for those we love. Awesome!
From our “Whole Family” to yours……
