Quick Printing Note

Note: When printing your “Who? What?” cards, print on both sides of the paper, so that the cards have “Who?” and “What?” on one side, and the name space/requests on the other side.

“Who? What?” is a simple and fun way to pray for others. This prayer idea is great to use with your daughter.

Who? What? Prayer Cards

To Prepare

1. Print the front and back of the “Who? What?” cards, or create cards of your own. (This download contains cards with six requests to pray for Christians. If you would like to use this method to pray for non-Christians, create more cards using the same idea, just write in different prayer requests.)

2. Cut out the cards.

3. On the back of each “Who?” card, write the name of someone you and your daughter would like to pray for.

To Pray

1. Sit at a table.

2. Lay the cards in the middle of the table in two piles, a “Who?” pile and a “What?” pile.

3. Take the top card off of each pile. Turn the two selected cards over and pray out loud for the person on the “Who?” card, using the request on the “What?” card.

4. Your daughter will pray silently along with you.

5. When you are done praying, your daughter will draw two more cards and pray out loud using those cards in prayer, while you pray silently along with her.

6. Continue steps 3 through 5 until you are ready to stop or all cards are used.

Suggestion: When you are finished praying, shuffle the cards and keep them together with a clip, a rubber band or little bag until you are ready to use them again. As time goes on, you and your daughter may want to add more cards to your pile so that you can include more people and more requests. In this case, print only the first page of the download, leaving the back blank so that you can write different requests on the “What?” cards.

and mighty things, which thou knowest not."

As a young daughter my parents encouraged me to memorize Scripture verses. I memorized Isaiah 41:10 and it became one of my favorite verses.

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” Isaiah 41:10

As an adult I continue to treasure Isaiah 41:10. And I can say with confidence that God has always been faithful to His Word. Praise Him! He is worthy of all our trust.
