Family Prayer Bear


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.
