A Christmas Prayer Chain

Tonight as we sit down as a family for Advent we are going to make a red and green paper chain. On each loop we will write down the names of family and friends. From now till Christmas we will cut off one loop each morning and spend the day praying for the person whose name is on the loop.

  1. That is a great idea - I may co-opt it from you!

    We have had something very similar in the past - a chain of 25 links, each link with a verse, to open during Advent. The boys' 1st grade Sunday School teacher made them every year, so we have done it three times. It was something they would remember and look forward to each day.

    We are doing Advent this year - wreath, devotions and all. I think we are going to do St. Nicholas Day, too. I love anything to celebrate Christ and His Church!
