Mission Service Activity of the Month

February 2022:  Make a Prayer Flip Notebook

"My Prayers" written on index cards held together with keyring

Prayer lists grow longer with each passing day. There are many people and circumstances we lay before God. We are blessed to be able to thank our loving Father, give Him praise, and ask for forgiveness. But sometimes prayer notes that have been written or received fall out of Bibles. A Prayer Flip Notebook assists in keeping your prayer list focused and serves as a reminder of answered prayer.  

Prayer Flip Notebooks are easy to make and easy to customize. Categorize the different pages with a prayer theme or a person’s name. Add or delete pages as needed. 

When making a notebook you may want to include a list of the 2021–2023 LWML Mission Grants. You may also want to include a card for your district’s mission grants, a card for your church prayer list, and cards for your personal prayer list.

For each Prayer Flip Notebook, you will need:

  • 10–12 (3 inch by 5 inch) note cards, white or multi colored
  • a 1-inch metal key ring
  • a hole punch
  • markers, pictures, and/or LWML stickers to decorate the cover of the Notebook

As you complete your Prayer Flip Notebook, we encourage you to take pictures, write an article for your district webpage, your district newsletter, or the Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly so you can share with other LWML women. We love seeing posts to the LWML Facebook page as well.


 And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God (Colossians 1:9–10).

Devotion as You Plan

Prayer as You Plan and Prepare

Heavenly Father, please bless all the hands that will be creating these prayer notebooks. We pray for all the names and circumstances that are on our hearts that will be placed on the pages of each one. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
