Prayer Prompters

I believe in praying for my grandsons . . . and seriously, of all the things I can do for them, there is nothing more important . . . and more powerful, than praying for them. But praying for them is not just something I do once each day . . . I pray for them throughout my day, every day. Whenever God brings my grandsons to mind, I pray for them. 

But, like many of us, my days can get busy and I may be focused on the things I'm doing and not think about the people in my life who I love and who I want to be praying for. So, to help me keep them in mind, I have things which prompt me to remember . . . and to pray.

I wear a necklace with a photo of my three, sweet, rascals and whenever I see it, or happen to reach up and touch it, I pray for these three boys I love so much.

My favorite morning coffee mugs have photos of my three grandsons, so as I enjoy my coffee, I pray for my grandsons.

I ordered a photo ornament from Shutterfly and put it on my purse, so wherever I go, whenever I see it, I'm reminded to stop and pray for my three, sweet boys.

I like having reminders; things I can see throughout the day, which remind me to pray, because, there is nothing more important, or more powerful, which I can do for my grandsons, than to pray for them.

If you would like to get something which you could use to remind you to pray for your grandchildren, consider the following two ideas . . . 
  • Shutterfly has a beautiful pewter ornament which they sent me so I could personalize and review it. It is available with up to four photos on it. I like it because it is sturdy and the photos I ordered, turned out beautifully! While it certainly makes a lovely ornament for a Christmas tree, I fastened it to my purse, so no matter where I go, I have a reminder to pray . . . and an easy way to show others how sweet and cute my grandsons are! I am a grandma, after all! (And, if you order in the next two days - before December 13th, you will receive 30% to 50% off your order! Just use the code - JOLLY)
  • Signals has a beautiful little faceted photo frame locket they sent me to review which can show two photos of whomever you like! I have the square locket and as soon as I settle on the photos I want to put in it, I will be very happy to wear it! I love how easy it will be to update the photos as my grandsons grow . . . this is definitely going to be one of my favorite necklaces. And, whenever I wear it, it will help me remember to pray for my three, sweet rascals! (And the charms are currently nearly $30 off - only $11.98 each.)
So, for yourself as prompters to remember to pray, or as a gift for someone else, consider giving a gift (these, or something else) which reminds those who receive it to pray . . . and then the best gift you can ever give . . . your prayers as well!
