praying for her...

I mentioned awhile back about the prayer pail that I made for Annie Rice. She absolutely loves it and most nights cries for a minute when we take the stick away:) Our nightly routine is to read a story out of the bible, and then pray using the prayer pail...but lately, I’ve been convicted about one thing. As much as it’s important for us to pray for other people, and for her to learn that, it’s just as important for her to see growing up that mom and dad prayed for her also. I know right now she doesn’t understand that, but she will soon enough, so I decided to add something to our prayer time at night. 
I made little cards with a different thing to pray for Annie Rice about every night. It’s cards that she can flip and play with, but also see growing up the specific ways we are praying for her. The full potential and abundant life that she can have in Christ. I found this list online and just added a few to it[future spouse, glory, etc]. Every card has a word and a verse so not only will she hear us praying those specific things but she will also hear scripture. 
Here is the list that I used...along with a few pictures of my sweet baby girl:)
