The Prayer Pets you’ll find here are coloring pages you can download and print. Each Prayer Pet teaches a simple way to pray. As children color, they can learn how to talk with God. The finished Prayer Pet will help children learn how to pray, and will remind them how much God loves them.

Our Prayer Pet family includes

Tuffy – he reminds us to say Hi to God every morning.

Grinny – she reminds us to tell God we are thankful for our blessings.

Kettle – he helps us pray for our friends.

WEEKEND WARRIORS

So many children need our prayers. Children in our families, our communities, and around the world. God knows every hair on their head, knows everything about them, created them, and loves them dearly. For us, as humans who feel called to pray, when we think about all the children, it can feel overwhelming. They all have needs, and they all need our prayers. We have to trust that God knows how to stir the hearts of intercessors for every one of His little children.

Weekend warriors is a way to make a prayer difference in the life of one child every weekend. Simply check here at the end of each week for the name of a child who needs our prayers, and offer your prayers to God. Keep that child’s name in your heart, in prayer, during the weekend. Or follow on Twitter @hometownprayer to see a weekly prayer post for that child. God bless you, and thank you for praying for God’s kids.

This is a great way for you and your children to pray together each weekend.

Weekend of Dec 1-3, 2017 – Please pray for Guy, a 3-year-old boy in Burundi who needs our prayers. Thank you. God bless you.
