Prayer Stones

A sweet woman I adore started a cool thing that she shared with me and group of some ladies. Prayer stones. She gets stones and puts them all together out on a plate in her entry way so that guests can ask what they're about and so that she and her family can have constant reminders. On these stones she writes a word or short phrase to describe a prayer God has answered or a big move in her life He's made or a miracle or just something cool to remember that God's done. On the back of the stone she writes a number, and in a journal she writes the story down in detail. When the stone is read she hopes it jolts the memory of God's goodness and faithfulness, and the number serves to tell where to turn in the journal to read the full story. She gave each of us in the group our first bag of stones and told us to start doing the same thing. Our stones are out in our living room on a plate. I can't wait until I have too many stones to contain. God is so good.

  1. Beautiful idea! I have a friend who collects heart-shaped stones and then writes scriptures with the word "heart" in them that remind her of someone and then she gives that person the stone. It's like saying, "This is what I see in you" or "God is watching over you in this way." Such encouragement!

    Who knew rocks could be used for such high purposes!
