Resources Needed:

  • Post it notes
  • Pens
  • Printed verse and instructions.


Print the following verse and instructions together:

“He has helped his servant Israel and remembered to be merciful. For he made this promise to our ancestors, to Abraham and his children forever.” Luke 1:54-55

Part of Mary’s song of joy to God reminds us that God is faithful and merciful to his people. Do you know of any person or situation that is in need of God’s faithfulness or mercy?

Write a short prayer for them on a post it note and stick it to the wall around this notice as a sign of offering your prayer to God. If you want your prayer to be private simply write the initials of the person you want to pray for or just something about their situation.

Take a minute to read some of the other post its and to pray for some of the other people and situations.
