My Prayer Board

Each year our mailboxes fill up with Christmas cards.  I love opening the cards and finding pictures of my friends and their families.  (And since I don't send one out of just my mug, I'm glad I am on their lists!)  A few years ago I started putting them on a board that I keep up all year long above my desk in my room.  It has become a great reminder to pray for the people in my life.
This year I think I am going to pray Colossians 1:9-10!
We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will
and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord,
and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit.
All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.
Now I wish I could say I pray for them daily or even weekly.  Not the case.  But it has really helped to be intentional through out the year. Prayer is something that I want to be faithful to do!  And putting this out there will add even more accountability for me :) !
And on a bonus note... they just plain make me happy!
So thanks to those of you who sent me your family Christmas card... love seeing your faces all year long.  And even more glad that most of you I get to see in person just as often as I see you on my board!
I'm so grateful for relationships!  They sure do make this crazy thing called life more interesting and fun!


  1. Love, love, love this idea!!! I may steal it. And I see our little guy at the top!

  2. I have two picture "trees" that I use for similar purposes. It's also a wonderful reminder that I'm loved by many.
