Prayer Box for Family Prayer
Create a prayer box for families. Include a prayer cloth, one-word prayer cards for contemplating, a Bible, a candle, a standing crucifix, and a container for holy water. Print simple instructions on how to use the prayer box and distribute to families. Once prayer boxes are distributed, take advantage of seasonal opportunities (new school year, Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, New Year, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, summer vacation, etc.) to continue to engage families in using the prayer box.
