Halloween Prayer Bookmarks

Header

I love praying for my neighborhood – especially the children that live there! I understand why most Christians don’t enjoy Halloween. However, in recent years it’s become one of my favourite days. It’s an opportunity to meet all the little lives I’ve been praying for – they literally come knocking at my door! 😊 It’s a wonderful way to be a light where God has placed you!

To encourage the families in my neighborhood I’ve created bookmarks – they’re great to hand out on their own or attached to goodies! On one side there is a fun animal fact. The opposite side says “Our family prayed for your family!” and the verse “O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures. Psalm 104:24” 💕 {If you’ve joined me in years past – I’ve updated my bookmarks! They now have brighter colours – less ink and more cheerful – and a new Bible verse!}

This year I’ve also made a small sign that you can put in your window or place outside your door. It reads, “Thanks for dropping by! Please let us know if we can pray for you!” This is a beautiful way to open the door to building a community with your neighbors and will help you know how to pray for them better!

Now I am thrilled to introduce you to my mother-in-law and Christian author, Julie K. Gillies! Today she’s given us a powerful prayer to pray for the children in our neighborhood as we assemble our treats and wait by the door – will you join us?

Dear Lord, I pray Your blessing over every child who comes to my door today. Lord, stir their hearts and reach out to them. Bring godly friends into their lives and put books and materials into their hands that will lead them to You. May each child who comes to my door tonight come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

May they walk in light, embrace Your truth, and experience Your love for themselves. May they know their future is in Your hands (Psalm 31:15), and always take delight in You, Lord (Psalm 37:4). May they understand what is just, right, and fair, and find the right way to go (Proverbs 2:9). May wisdom enter their hearts and knowledge fill them with joy (Proverbs 2:10). May wise choices watch over them and understanding keep them safe (Proverbs 2:11).  Lord, show them Your unfailing love in wonderful ways (Psalm 17:7a) all the days of their lives.

It is in the precious name of Jesus that I ask these things, knowing You are good and You are able, Amen.

Encourage One Another

It’s been a season of transitions for my husband and me. We’re heading towards where we’ve always wanted to be but it’s a process to get there. Sometimes it’s overwhelming. Sometimes one of us feels like we’re wilting. That’s when the other steps in and speaks encouraging truth that bring life to a weary heart. 💕 It’s so important to remember to breathe and accept God’s precious grace for the journey!

Is there someone in your life who could use a dose of encouragement today? Reach out to them and share a smile! 😊❤️

“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11

How do you make it clear to those around you whose light you’re shining? I’m looking for simple and creative ways to deflect attention towards my good works and redirect it towards the One who enabled me to do them. Some people choose symbolic jewelry or speak blessings – any other ideas?️❤️⭐️

This year I’ve updated these FREE bookmarks!
Click here to see the new bookmarks on my NEW BLOG POST!

Hi friends! I typically don’t like the idea of Trick-or-Treating, but I’m super excited about Halloween this year! The last few months I’ve been praying for the families in my neighborhood. I’m looking forward to seeing the little faces I’ve been praying for! 💗

To encourage the families in my neighborhood I’ve created little bookmarks to attach to my goodies. On one side there is an illustrated animal with a fun fact. The opposite side says “Our family prayed for your family!” and the verse “Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1”
