Printable Prayer Cards – FREE Download

The ladies in our small group have been reading a book together, A Praying Life by Paul Miller. When we began the section on prayer cards, I wanted something colorful to have in my hands during the day – a visual reminder of the prayers on my heart and something that I could carry along with me. Most importantly, I want to be able to see when and how those prayers are answered.

Printable Prayer Cards copy

In A Praying Life, Miller suggests different topic areas for prayer, so these cards are color-coded based on those different areas of prayer. You can quickly find a card to add a prayer request and begin praying. Since our family sponsors children through Compassion International, I also added cards for those requests as well.

I’m using the cards to write out specific requests and Scripture reference. If i need additional cards, I can print off a new sheet. There are verse and quote cards that I’m using to divide the different sections.

Compassion Prayer Card

The image above gives you a sample idea of how I am personally using the cards for one of our Compassion children. I’d encourage you to add specific verses to each card and write down when you see answers to prayers as well.

The cards to great if they are printed on cardstock. The corner of mine are hole punched and they are on a jump ring {similar to a key ring}. Each card is 3”x5” in size when cut apart, so you can also add them to a file box if you prefer not to use a jump ring.

Do you have a prayer help to keep track of your requests? I’d love to hear what works for you.

ABC Bible Verse Posters ~ Free Printables

After I shared the ABC Bible Verse Flashcard Printables with you all, I received many emails asking for ABC Bible Verse posters – a larger version of each flashcard and Bible verse.

Here they are!!

Bible Verse Posters

Each of the ABC Bible Verse Posters will print off 8 1/2” x 11” in size and has the same verses that are in the ABC Bible Verse Flashcard Printables {all NIV but one}. You can hang the posters around your room, and then print off a copy of the flashcards to have handy.

Our family enjoys the music from Seeds Family Worship and many of the verse cards are from songs that you can find on the albums that Seeds has available. Their cd’s are not only easy to sing along to, but even the adults can enjoy them {I frequently find myself singing along with them!}.

Hope these are a help to you and your family!

Elementary Bible Verse Printables

Bible Verse Printables 200

Our older kids {as well as the younger ones}, still like having printables to help them study their verses. The picture cues and hands-on help with puzzles have really helped them remember Scripture.

Each year when our kids participate with a local church program, we’ve used these Bible verse printables to help them in their learning. The printables typically include an 8 1/2” x 11” page, cut-apart verse strips and puzzle cards, and also 4” x 6” verse cards {a smaller version of the 8 1/2” x 11” poster page}.


We slip our 4” x 6” cards into a small photo book {usually $1 at Walmart}. The verse strips can be taped or glued together or you can put them in the correct order using a tabletop pocket chart.

Elementary Bible Verse Printables

Today, I am sharing the elementary Bible verse printables ~ so far there are over 70 verses uploaded!! I’m adding more verses as we work on them.  Here’s a little peek at what the full Bible verse printables look like along with the word puzzles and strips for kids to get a little more ‘hands-on’ practice.

You can find all of my Bible resources for kids on my website along with all of my Bible Verse Printables.

Illustrating a Bible Verse

Illustrate a Verse dotted

Another help that we use each week when memorizing a verse is illustrating the verse that we are learning. Our kids draw a picture in the top rectangle that represents the verse to them, then they write the verse out on the lines below. During the week when they recite the verse, we check off one of the boxes at the bottom of the page.

The Honest Truth ~ Teaching God’s Word


This post is a part of my 10 Day of Teaching God’s Word series

At this moment I have a mental ‘to do’ list of things to share with you all for the rest of this series. More printables. Additional resources and helps. At the moment though, I am really feeling the need to put that aside.

The honest truth is that I have a household of children needing my attention before I head out of town this weekend for a conference. Children that need to be snuggled with. Cookies to bake and batter to lick off spoons. A soccer ball to kick around with my boys. {There’s most likely a load of laundry that needs tending to as well}.

Then, in just a short week, I will be headed to Africa with Compassion International for over a week. That means, I also have a husband that I need to lavish some attention on ~ since he’ll be alone with said children. He’s going to need all the encouragement I can give him! {smiles}

In short, I need to lead my kids by example, love on my children and live out the Word of God to my family.

And honestly ~ I am ok with that. Because ultimately THAT is what the entire point of this series has been ~ teaching God’s Word and living by example.

Thank you all SO much for following along with the series these past ten days. I truly pray that you all have found some useful resources and helps to use with your families. There will be more to come in the upcoming weeks and months, and {if you haven’t already} feel free to browse through the posts below from the series.

So today {and every day!!!} go live out who God has called you and created you to be ~ a wonderful parent to your kids!
