For many years we have hung a prayer board in our kitchen. It is a simple bulletin board with Philippians 4:6-7 above.
We post pictures of people we are praying for or write out their names and tack them up.
We have our World Vision sponsor child’s picture up there.
It is a simple reminder to pray. It is a great visual for us all to remember to present our requests.
It is also a testimony
to those in your home that you are a praying house.
I remember many years ago, a non-Christian friend was over. Several days later she confided in me that her son was ill and she was scared. She said she had noticed the prayer board and was wondering if we could add her son to our prayers.
What a beautiful moment for me. It gave me the chance to share Jesus with her, as well as pray for her family.
A prayer board is a great way to remind of us all who we are praying for and keep God in the forefront of our minds throughout they day.
