Keep a running list of people and things you want to pray for on this cute prayer roll free printable that coordinates with my Come Follow Me 2019 Study Helps.
I have to tell you a little backstory to why I made this printable. I literally had to do it.
A few months ago my husband and I noticed that our kids weren’t thanking as much as they were asking in their prayers. We challenged them to start their prayers with FIVE things they were grateful for. They totally took on our challenge to heart so much that this past week I realized they weren’t asking for ANYTHING anymore. I have a huge testimony of prayer and know that Heavenly Father answers our prayers. We want our kids to show gratitude for all of their blessings for sure, but also want them to know that they can, and should, ask for the blessings that they are needing or wanting.
I was pondering this one morning and I got this sudden feeling I needed to make a prayer roll. We needed something to write down who and what we wanted to pray for. A small vision flashed across my mind of having it on the table in the living room and we all looked at it at night, before we said our family prayers. I had one on my nightstand where I wrote down the sisters I minister to and others that I thought of as they came to me. I pictured one hanging on my fridge, where we all had access to it. My kids could come home from school after talking to a friend who was having a hard day and they could write their name on it. I saw it all so clearly.
And then I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I talked about it to my family, to my friends, in church…and yet I still hadn’t made it.
There was a to-do list though, I started making other gifts and started photographing them, but nothing was working out for me. Seriously, I was struggling so much with everything that usually goes pretty easily for me.
I just kept feeling like I needed to make this and share this. So, finally, I made this prayer roll, and the floodgates opened. First of all, all of the ideas for the Come Follow Me 2019 Study Helps came to me without any second guessing. That’s huge for me. I second guess everything!
My to do list flowed amazingly, and I was able to complete it without any problems.
I absolutely know without a shadow of a doubt that I was supposed to make these and share these with you.
They might just be for me and my family, but I don’t think so. This is important.
So print these out, cut them into strips and USE them! Heavenly Father has all of these blessings and gifts for us, we just need to ask… John 15:7
I put these on a binder clip and printed a whole bunch so I can put them all the places I saw them when I got the idea.
Prayer Roll Free Printable
It’s not rocket science or even a very elaborate printable. It’s literally just a list paper…until you write on it. That’s when it becomes special. Anytime an impression comes to you, or someone asks for prayers you can write their name down.
Writing something on paper has power. We know that. It’s been proven.
Writing a name or a blessing on paper that you want Heavens help with? Miraculous power.
When you kneel down by your bed at night, or with your family before everyone goes on their way…or just when you get a moment of conversation with your Heavenly Father, you can pull your list out. You can read the names and the blessings, you can ponder them in your heart, you can consider the needs and get ready to plead with the Lord on their behalf. It truly could make all the difference in your prayers.
