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.

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.

    *Beautiful* cards! Thank you so much for sharing them with all of us!

  • Anam Cara

    Thank you!
    These are very nice and I will use them, but I just wish you had used the pdf that allows us to type in the verses on the blank card. I have used that type with certain calendars – you can’t save what you type, just the blank template, but when you print each page, it looks so much better than my scrawly handwriting.

  • I’ll see what I can do. :)

  • dazeofadventure

    These are fabulous!

  • Caryn

    Oh wow, what a blessing! I really liked Miller’s book and your cards will help me practice what I read–Pray more! I too would like the format that I can write on if that’s available. Thank you so much!

  • I’m working on it! :) We’re gearing up for a camping trip, so I’m short on time right now, but it’s on my ‘to do’ list – I promise! :)

  • If I have a chance to work on this I will. Creating an editable file takes quite a bit of extra time on my part and I just wanted to share them as soon as possible. :)

  • Joyous Web

    Lovely! Thank you! Would you mind providing the cover card art as well? I think it makes a beautiful topper to the stack of cards!

  • The cover is included – just be sure to print off the first page of the document and then cut it out. :) That’s the one that I used!

  • Emily @OAAA

    You’re a rock star! Just in case nobody ever told you that before!

  • Thanks, Emily. :)

  • Sarah

    Thank you for sharing this! It’s just what I was looking for. :)

  • You’re welcome, Sarah. :)

  • Lori

    I love these! Thank you so much for sharing them. I would love to add a “marriage” category to them as well. I like the blank template idea also.

  • Lori

    Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! I have started using these and asking family and friends what I can pray about for them. They have been so touched, but it was all because of you and your willingness to share these. They are so nice! You are awesome!

  • Cheryl Wimberly

    This is so wonderful! Thank you!

  • Penne McClung

    I found these on Pinterest. Thank you so much for sharing. Your efforts will help me focus on being more prayerful, especially as life gets busy. Bless you
