Inside each pot were five craft sticks, labeled with five different things the girls could be praying for: family, friends, church, missions, and "you" (their own prayer requests and concerns).
One of our members suggested that we use that kind of tool in the future, and I think it might be a valuable aid to overcome proseucheglossophobia. (Be sure to click the link to read about proseucheglossophobia, if you are unfamiliar with the term!)
Many thanks to Danielle, our church's Children's Co-Director, who presented this wonderful prayer tool to my children on Sunday, to my daughter Katy for sharing it with our group, and for the women of Living Stones for being willing to try it out during our prayer time together!
If you try this prayer tool with your own family or prayer group, please share with us how it works out for you.
