Prayer Flowers

This is a cute idea for prayers or prayer reminders. You tape the 'prayer flower' to a wall by your bed, your prayer corner, or work desk...anywhere! Then on the remaining yellow petals you write the prayer requests you want to pray for often. Since tape sticks easily to laminate, tape the prayer request 'petals' over the laminated flower to match. You can change out at will or remove when the prayer is answered. These are some I just made recently to encourage two close friends. :)

Supplies for making two prayer flowers
  • 2 sheets yellow paper (or flower petal color of choice)
  • 1/2 sheet green paper
  • 1/2 sheet orange paper (or center of flower paper color of choice)
  • 4 sheets of self laminate
  • Using the 1/2 sheet or orange paper, cut out 2 circles for center of flowers
  • Using yellow paper, cut 20 'petals'
  • Using one of the circles cut for the center of the flowers, cut two circles from the yellow paper
  • Cut stems from 1/2 sheet of green paper
  • On one side of each orange center circle, tape 5 petals
  • Tape a stem on each flower also where petals meet
  • Tape the yellow circles to the back of flower to cover where petals & stem meet in back
  • Write a favorite scripture on prayer on the front circle in center of flower
  • Laminate flower between two pieces of laminate then cut around the flower
Jude: 1:20-21 But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
