Here is February’s prayer calendar — 28 days to help focus your child in his prayer life. Oh, and I even threw in a bonus day for leap year . . . which you will have to wait a few more years to actually get to use 🙂
If you haven’t picked up the free prayer journal pages yet, please do that! You can find them here . . . and they will help your kids personalize their prayer lives even more! And, if your kids like to color, you can find a special “love” (1 Corinthians 13) coloring page here.
You might notice that I waded into some serious territory this month by having kids focus on praying for the value of life. I have been challenged recently to dive into these serious issues with our kids . . . they need to learn that, even though they are still young, they can make a difference!! I have two Bible lessons on this topic as well: one for children and one for teenagers.
And now . . . here is the prayer calendar for February. Have a great month and keep praying!
February Prayer Calendar
1. It is a new month! In the month of February, we often focus on LOVE! Take some time today Praising God for His UNFAILING, UNCONDITIONAL love for all of us! Read Romans 5:8 and reflect on the fact that God loved us so much that He sent Jesus to take the punishment for our sins. Thank you, God, for your unconditional love!

Praying for Important Issues:
15. For the next few days, we are going to focus our prayers asking God to help people recognize the value of human life.

Ask God to show all people everywhere that ALL life is important and valuable.
16. Pray for those people who are working to show others how valuable life is. Pray for your local Pregnancy Resource Center. Pray for the staff who work there. Pray for the money needed to run the centers. Pray for the women who visit these centers to recognize the value of all life. And, most importantly, pray for people to come to know Jesus through these centers. If you want to find a center near you, visit this site.
