This morning in Sunday School, our teacher showed us how we can make something to help us remember to pray for Christians we don’t know, like the unidentified woman in Nigeria we learned about last week, who suffer because they love Jesus. She showed us how to make a Silhouette Prayer Card. Here’s what we did:
First, she gave us each a small piece of heavy paper that had the flag of Nigeria on it. Then, she had us draw an outline of our faces on black construction paper. She told us to draw it small enough to fit on the small picture of the flag she had given us.
Next, we cut out the pictures we had drawn and glued them onto the flag. She said that once the glue dried, we could use the cards as a bookmark in our Bibles. Or, we could put the card up on the wall or the refrigerator. Every time we see the card, it will help us remember to pray for the people whose names we don’t know that need God’s help.
“Dear God, please help everyone who believes in You to be safe. Make them strong and help them tell everyone they can how much Jesus loves each of us. And, please don’t let me forget to pray for them. Thank You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
