My Prayer Box is a vintage tin.
A Prayer Box is an ongoing gift. Each time you come across a passage of scripture that stirs your heart or you read a quote that makes you think you put a copy in the box. My friend was kind enough to take the time to hand write some of the notes so not only do I have the scripture or quote I have it in her own hand. That is an extra blessing beyond measure.
Inside are scriptures, hymns and hand written quotes.
Every week I take a note from the box and make it my focus of prayer for the coming days. During my reflection of the passage I am not only encouraged by the uplifting words but it brings a smile to my face as I remember that I am loved dearly by God and my friend.
I am searching now for a box to prepare for my daughter when she moves away from home and for other dear friends. As I search for the right containers I am also gathering my favorite scripture passages and quotes to add to their box and my own.
Some notes are handwritten and others are printed.
This would make a great wedding gift for a young couple to remind them to hold dearly to the love they share. At a shower you could ask guests to write or bring with them their favorite scripture or encouraging words.
This gift is one of the best gifts I have ever received. The gift of encouragement and love is held in each note. Begin today preparing a Prayer Box for you, your family and dear friends. I have gathered some of my favorite scriptures to get you started click on the link Prayer Box Cards to print them out and add to your boxes. Everyone can use a little more prayer each and every day.
