I LOVE Throne of Grace’s Legacy Prayer Journals. I can say that humbly because I had very little to do with their creation. A customer dreamed the idea up (Thank you, Carolina!). My wonderful Worker Bees get credit for the vast majority of the fabulous craftiness of the covers. I created the content of the insides but only under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. And as Deb, Tami, and all my close friends and family will tell you, they are printed, punched, and bound only by THE GRACE OF GOD! (I am cursed when it comes to printers. They truly are one of Satan’s best tools to get under my skin!)
I also LOVE kids! Anyone who knows me knows that. I have a HUGE heart for kids and an even bigger heart for seeing kids get excited about a relationship with Jesus.
I love kids’ praise music (any other Psalty fans out there? Go Fish Guys? Mary Rice Hopkins?? I could go on, but that’s another post for another day…).
I love kids’ Bibles.
I love teaching kids about Jesus.
I love helping kids hide God’s Word in their hearts.
I love praying for kids and with kids and encouraging others to pray for and with kids.
So…the idea of making a prayer journal designed with kids in mind was a natural next step for me.
Announcing…Throne of Grace’s New:
Mustard Seed Prayer Journals
Why “Mustard Seed” prayer journals? The inspiration came from scripture, of course! Jesus used the analogy of a mustard seed in several different parables. In one, he compared the mustard seed to the kingdom of God, explaining how it grows from a small beginning:
Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
(Mark 4:30-32 NIV)
In another parable, He related the mustard seed to our faith, saying it takes just the tiniest amount of faith to move a mountain when that faith is grounded in His power:
“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
(Matthew 17:20b NIV)
With a Mustard Seed Prayer Journal you can help plant tiny seeds of faith in the heart of a child and then watch that faith grow as they experience God’s faithfulness through prayer. Maybe my excitement for seeing those mustard seeds of faith take root in the heart of a child comes from the fact that Jesus saved me at a young age. I know from personal experience what a blessing it is to have adults in your life who sow and water little hearts.
Throne of Grace loves to see our customers get excited about living life as a faith-filled prayer warrior – and nothing is as wonderful than seeing that happen in the life of a child! If you’ve loved our Legacy Prayer Journals, than you will love this streamlined version that is perfect for kids (or adults who like to keep things simple)! We have repurposed those boring little composition books and transformed them into something to treasure!
The journal is divided into 6 tabbed sections labeled “Thanks for…”, “Sorry for…”, “Please…”, “Family”, “Friends”, and “Others”. Just as with our Legacy Prayer Journals, the goal is to help break up prayer needs into manageable sections.
