Additional Resources

Popcorn Prayer – Have one person in the family start a prayer and then stop. Someone else picks up and keeps going. Repeat until everyone has had a least one turn.

Prayer Pictures – Post pictures or written names if everyone in your house can read around the house. Every time you pass the picture or name, stop to pray for the person. Parents you will need to model this out loud for your children multiple times to help them understand. Change the names / photos after a few days or once a week.
