Prayer Cards

There are three ways we can grow in our relationship with our heavenly Father: spending time on our knees, spending time in His word, and spending time worshiping Him. 

In today’s vlog I discussed making prayer cards as a tool for our times in prayer with God. He longs to hear from us. He already knows all about us — even the number of hairs on our heads. But He longs to hear from us.

To make your own cards you will need:

4×6 index card


List of Names/Qualities/Characteristics of God. My favorite is found in Sylvia Gunter’s Prayer Portions book on the page entitled “You Are My God.” You can check out that resource here: 

HS-Prayer Cards 4


1. Pray that God would reveal to your heart the places in your life where you need Him. Ask that He would show you new aspects of His love for you and that He would become real to you. He desires to have a personal relationship with you. Pray “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ…may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.”

2. Choose the Names/Qualities/Characteristics of God that minister to your heart’s cry. Remember that it is “at the name of Jesus that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.”

3. Write out the Names/Qualities/Characteristics on the card along with the corresponding Scripture references. “Call on the name of the Lord.”

4. Place the card in your Bible so it will be easy for you to find and use during your personal quiet time each day. We are encouraged to “walk in the light as He is in the light.”

5. Refer to the list often. Keep God, the truths of God, and the word of God ever before you as you “pray continually.”

6. Read over the related verses when possible or during your prayer time as you “make your requests known” and as you “go before the throne of Grace with confidence.”  It is the word of God that is “alive and active…sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing the soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

“What does the Lord require? To do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8

I had it going on—or so I thought. After surviving sixty-three months of pregnancy, countless sleepless nights, and 35,000+ diapers, this one-time control freak encountered God’s grace. And I’m here to encourage you to do the same! I love encouraging and inspiring moms to grow deeper in their walk and relationship with our Heavenly Father.

I’ve been married to my beloved, Davis, since 1986; our life has been a roller-coaster ride, with God at the controls. We have seven kids and let me tell you our family loves to laugh! I enjoy playing in the dirt, eating dark chocolate, and walking on the beach. I’m an author and speaker and I am passionate about helping moms not only survive motherhood, but draw near to the Father and thrive in motherhood.

I’m so glad you’re here.

One thought on “Prayer Cards {vlog}

  1. Interesting that just today my kids and I were talking about Jesus wanting to spend time with us in prayer–He wants us to know Him. And we discussed some of His names and how that helps us to know who and what He is. I love the idea of the names of Jesus prayer cards. What a wonderful doable idea. Thank you for sharing this post today.
