Toothpick Holder Prayer Reminder

Toothpick
Toothpick Holder Prayer Reminder

Natalie L., a 15-year-old volunteer from Dover, Delaware, recently visited The Voice of the Martyrs with other visiting volunteers. Natalie and other volunteers made toothpick prayer reminders and shared the assembly instructions with VOM.

Main Materials

  • Straight-sided plastic pill bottle or spice bottle. Spice bottles with flip tops or holes in the top are especially good.
  • Small photo of persecuted Christians from VOM publications or printed from this site.
  • Craft glue or clear contact paper.

Instructions

  • Cut a photo to fit around the bottle. To make it thicker, you may want to glue the photo to colored paper before attaching it to the bottle.
  • Glue the photo to the bottle.
  • Cover with craft glue or contact paper.
  • Decorate the bottle with yarn or ribbon if desired.
  • Fill with toothpicks and shake out as needed. (If the bottle has no holes in the top, poke a hole in the top, or just open the bottle and shake out a toothpick.)
  • Keep the bottle on the table where you eat as a mealtime prayer reminder.

Framed Photo Prayer Reminder

Photo

Use a framed photo of a persecuted Christian to remind yourself to pray for your brother or sister in Christ. This activity is easy to make and full of opportunities for creativity.

Find and print out a photo of a Christian from another country on this website. You can also use a photo from The Voice of the Martyrs’ newsletter or VOM Prayer Calendar.

Cut out the photo, leaving a 2-inch margin on all sides. To make a frame, cut a piece of peel-and-stick craft foam the same size as the photo, including the margins. Cut out the center of the sheet of craft foam leaving a 2-inch margin on all sides. Carefully peel the backing off the foam, and place it on the photo page to form a frame.

Cut a piece of cardboard the same size as the framed picture. Use colorful tape to decorate the frame, wrapping it around the back of the picture to hold the cardboard in place.

If you want to make a stand for the framed photo, fold a 12-inch long by 1-inch wide thick cardboard strip into a right triangle. and tape the end shut. Glue or tape one leg of the triangle to the back of the picture so that the stand sits flat on a surface and holds up the photo.

Another option is to make a frame out of cardboard instead of craft foam. You can decorate the frame and glue it to the photo.


Morse Code Bible Verse

On May 24, 1844, Samuel Morse sent the first long-distance telegraph message from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore.

A little more than 100 years later, Pastor Richard Wurmbrand, the man who later founded The Voice of the Martyrs, was imprisoned for his Christian activities in Romania. He sent Morse code messages to encourage others imprisoned with him by tapping on the wall between cells.

The symbols below represent the Morse code alphabet. Print the symbols, then label each symbol with a letter of the alphabet, starting with A. Then read the instructions below the alphabet.

           
.- -... -.-. -.. . ..-.

Clothespin Magnet Prayer Reminder

Clothespin

Visiting volunteers at The Voice of the Martyrs headquarters recently made clothespin magnet prayer reminders. To make similar reminders, glue decorations on one side of a clothespin, and stick a piece of peel-and-stick magnetic tape on the other side or decorate one side with colorful patterned duct tape.

Cut out small photos from this website or The Voice of the Martyrs newsletter. You can glue the photos to frames made of cardboard or cardstock, write the name of a persecuted Christian or a country where Christians are persecuted on a piece of thick paper or cardstock, or make a flag of a country. Fasten the items with the clothespin.

Put the clothespin on a refrigerator or other magnetic surface as prayer reminders. Change or add to the items as you learn of other prayer needs.
