How to make use of Crafts in your Prayer Journal

A Salvation nursery

Schools and homes are experiencing tough times because of moral decay, drugs, and alcohol, domestic abuse, unstable homes, and many more situations across the world. Parents, especially single parents, who have to spend most of their time at work providing for the needs of their children, struggle with supervision .

Moral values in our children’s homes are decaying and some homes are left with no structure, love, and support. The biggest challenge of teachers in our region is dealing with social issues and yet we do not have stable access to social-related support. This creates a need for moral – and spiritual support in our education system by teachers.

Since I started with prayer journaling, it was to take my prayer life to the next level. I did not expect it to drastically change my sphere so suddenly. It drew my heart into prayer and keep it hooked!

Little did I know that this prayer presence will hugely impact the people I made contact with daily, especially my learners. Just as I was drawn nearer to God, they were also drawn nearer, and eventually, they accepted Christ as their savior. Every time a learner gave their heart to the Lord after counseling, I developed a habit to record their names and date of salvation in my journal. I believe that our children’s future should be preserved and they need mentors guiding them into their godly purpose.

Ephesians 2:8-9

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

I created a special page in my journal which I call my salvation nursery.

This makes praying for them much easier . I wrote their names and prayers in little hearts and dedicate it unto God in prayer.

For one of my classes, I created a special pop-up nursery booklet.

It’s so special to see the children’s reactions when they saw their names in my prayer journal.

These nursery rooms in my journal was a celebration of victory through Christ. Crafts can be quite useful in our prayer journals and it’s fun and pretty.

Blessed Journaling
