Encourage your church to give the children in your ministry a
Prayer Valentine. Around the first of February, write each child’s
name and age on a red cut-out heart. On the back, write Ephesians 4:14-19-the Scripture reference
only, not the words.
Punch a hole in the top of each heart and pull white yarn through
the hole. Tie the yarn and hang these hearts from the ceiling in
your church foyer. Post a sign in the foyer and place an
announcement in your church bulletin (for several weeks),
explaining that church members can take one or more hearts and pray
the Scripture for children until Easter.
If any hearts aren’t taken by Valentine’s Day, give them to your
staff to pray for those children.
