Encourage your church members to pray for the children in your ministry this spring with quick and easy prayer Valentine’s Day activity.
Full Church Activity: Prayer Valentines
Around the first of February, write each child’s first name and age on a red cut-out heart. On the back, write Ephesians 4:14-19. To save space, just write the Scripture reference only, not the entire verse.
Next, 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. Then 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. You can even have your pastor announce the prayer valentines for a few weeks.
If any hearts aren’t taken by Valentine’s Day, give them to your staff to pray for those children.
