Christmas Cards as Prayer Prompts

- Who Knew?

One year I received a note from an LWML mentor and friend in April saying she had prayed for my family during her morning devotions. She went on to explain that at the beginning of the New Year she would take the Christmas cards they received and each day she selected one, prayed for the sender, and then penned a short note.

I felt so loved and encouraged … and impressed by the creative use of Christmas cards as prayer prompts! So, before you throw away those Christmas cards, or delete the email greetings, maybe you could say a prayer and send a “reply.”

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, … (Philippians 1:3-7a).
