This resource can be used in a variety of ways in your classroom. Please feel free to use it as you see fit. I use this resource in my fourth grade classroom in the following way:
Each Monday my students are given a prayer buddy sheet. They fill out this sheet with prayer requests that they have for the upcoming week. They can write anything! Worries, prayers for the sick, an injured family member, prayers of thanksgiving, etc. After they are finished writing 3 requests, I have them fold their sheet and put it in a bin. Once all of forms have been collected, I walk around the room and have students pick a prayer buddy from the bin. That person is their prayer buddy for the whole week!
Throughout the week I ask that my students do the following:
Pray for that specific classmate during our end of the day prayer time (We have silent prayer time included in this)
Pray for their prayer buddy at home (I communicate this with parents as well)
Check in with their prayer buddy at least once throughout the week.
I’d love to hear how you use this resource in your room!
