My awesome friend Amy shared this with me. I love it so I thought I would pass it along. I made a couple of changes to it.

Here are 31 “things” to pray for you kids. One for each day of the month. I was already praying with the boys each night at bedtime. Now I have added this to our prayer routine. Some nights, it’s late when we get to bed and I simply ask God to give my children (and my husband and myself) the “thing” for that day. Some nights we have a little more time, and I try to explain that night’s “thing” to the kids along with praying about it. And then, there are those rare nights when I’ve got it all together and we read a story about that night’s “thing”, read some Bible verses, talk about what it means, and pray about it.
