Family Prayer Bear

Children's Ministry Magazine

This small stuffed teddy bear came with a card of instructions around his neck and a cross necklace. The children took turns taking the bear home for one week. The card around the bear's neck instructed the family to pray together that week and return the bear the following Sunday.

I encouraged the teachers to keep a journal of the thoughts brought back each week from the children and parents. We gave a small prize when the bear was returned. The accountability was great, and kids usually kept reminding their parents to pray during that week.
