31 Days of Prayer for my children

I stole this from a group on Facebook.  She actually said that it was alright.  In fact, she suggests, taking them and making them your own – inserting your children’s names, hanging them where you will see them throughout the day, etc.  This is a great tool!  I will keep adding as the group puts more up.
