This post contains a prayer calendar for children for the month of May — a different prayer idea for each day of the month! The calendar follows the outline given in the Lord’s Prayer and is intended to help our children learn to pray BIG! The prayers of our children can have a huge impact . . . let’s get them praying in the month of May!
At the end of the month, please come back and print off the Summer Bible Reading Plan for children! There will be a plan for independent readers, as well as one for younger children. This year’s theme is “The Call”, and your children will be challenged to answer God’s call on their lives in ten different areas, including the call to follow, the call to go, the call to testify, the call to be bold, the call to be different and the call to stand. I hope your family will join us for an exciting summer of spiritual growth!
And be sure to head over to get your own prayer calendar and list for the 365 Days of Praying for Your Children challenge. You can find that list here: https://cherigamble.com/2015/04/28/365-days-of-praying-for-your-children-may/
Also, I would like to invite you to join our facebook group, “Raising Godly Kids”. This is a place where you will find ideas, encouragement, and accountability as you raise godly kids in today’s society.
Have a great May and KEEP PRAYING!
