Being a parent means a lot of different things. It means being chef, playmate, ‘healer’ of booboos, listener and teacher. We knowingly teach our children daily, and often times, unknowingly as well (as I am learning quite well lately as my son repeats the last word of every sentence he hears!).

This is why when I was approached by Bear and Squirrelย ย to share this prayer calendar, I knew I had to do it. Ever since Emmett has been a baby we have made it a point to read to him the Bible and pray with him every single day. I know he did not understand at first, and honestly, he probably still does not get it 100%. But my son knows that we pray to Jesus, we believe in Jesus and Jesus is part of our lives each day.

This calendar–I am SO excited about– because it is a prayer guide for parents on how to pray and encourage their children to pray. Each day has a specific prayer that relates with a Bible verse. The prayers are repeated every months (same prayer for January 1st, February 1st. etc.) So you are essentially focusing on 30 +/- prayers a month to pray with your child(ren).

Here is an example of one day: Day 17. Pray that they would walk in God’s truth and fear the Lord. Psalm 86:11

Then there is a section dedicated to having a prayer buddy each month. You can include their photo, ways to encourage them and specific prayer requests to write down. This part might be a little young for my 2.5 year old, but I am thinking about doing it anyway and putting up photos of family members on it for him.

The calendar has 12 beautiful photos featuring the adventures of Bear + Squirrel. They are so colorful and fun. There is a fun fact included as well. I won’t spoil all the photos on here, so you’ll just have to take my word on it!
