Praying hands coloring page
Putting the hands together, palm to palm, seems like a universal symbol of prayer. I am not quite sure how this got started but it would be interesting to find out.
These coloring sheets feature praying hands of different kinds. They make meaningful reinforcement activities if you are teaching your children about prayer.
They are simple enough for kids but adults can apply techniques for coloring skin tones to make it look really advanced. You can also color around the primary images by apply techniques for coloring backgrounds.
While you are working on that, meditate on the state of your prayer life and invite God to help you grow in this area.

God hears me when I pray coloring page
God always answers our prayers. I am sure of it. He said He would. The thing is, the answer sometimes isn’t what we expect or what we want.
So it can feel like God isn’t hearing your prayers.
In these moments, ignore your feelings. They are fleeting. But more than that, feelings don’t always reflect truth.
So you have to hold on to the promises of the God and remind yourself of who He is.
These coloring sheets can be used as a means of affirmations or positive self-talk when you’re struggling in your prayer life.
God does hear you when you pray, no matter how you feel.

Praying for you coloring pages
There’s a song by the Heritage Singers that I love: Someone Is Praying for you. The words are uplifting and comforting.
A similar song is: I Will Talk to my Father for you by The Nelson Singers.
People’s outlook on a burdening situation can change just because they know you are praying for them.
Their outlook might not change but they could feel so much better. It’s kind of like a spiritual kinship.
Do you know someone who could use a prayer? You could send them either of the songs I mentioned.
Or, you color any of these sheets, make a card out of it, and send it to them.

Since I’m on a roll with songs, here’s another empowering song about prayer: Pray On by Babbie Mason.
Sometimes when I feel like my prayers aren’t getting further than the ceiling, I put this one on repeat to remind myself that Scripture says I should pray continually.
God always wants us to keep talking to him. There are some prayers He will take time to answer and there are others He will answer right away.
These prayer coloring sheets have actual prayers on them. I was looking around and couldn’t find any. As you color, pray the words over and over.

Prayer of Jabez coloring pages
Jabez prayed one of the boldest prayers of the Bible. It is short and specific and direct.
There was a huge craze a few years ago over the prayer of Jabez. It passed all too quickly.
At this time in my life, this prayer is very personal to me.
I’m in grad school and there are many things I’m asking God for so that my career will take off in a purposeful, God-ordained direction.
I hope you will join me on praying this prayer over your life, right now.
