Great Ideas: Prayer Request Board


Provide students an opportunity to post prayer requests on this easy-to-create bulletin board.

From our Fall 2017 issue: a Pinterest-inspired prayer request bulletin board.

I love including the prayer requests of my students in our morning prayer, but when I noticed that it was always the same students that spoke up, I looked for ideas to bring everyone in. A teacher shared on Pinterest the idea of a prayer board. Instead of a prayer request book or box, she turned one of her bulletin boards into a prayer request board. She took pictures of the students praying and placed them around the board and then placed a stack of cute-shaped sticky notes and some markers near the board. Any student could write their prayer request anonymously or not and then post it on the board. During morning prayer, the teacher asked the students to read them aloud at the appropriate time.
