You can make a calendar that reminds you to pray for persecuted Christians throughout the year.
Cut 12 pieces of 4-inch by 4-inch (or larger) calendar pages out of plain, colored, or graph paper.
Draw or glue a small one-month calendar grid on each page.
Attach one or two photos from VOM/Kids of Courage publications or websites to each page.
Suggestion: The 2013 Kids of Courage IDOP resource in the Downloads section includes and “A to Z Prayer Guide” with photos and prayer points. There are 52 Sundays in 2014 and 26 prayer points on the guide. Use photos and prayer points from the guide, and pray for each prayer request for two weeks.
Write a short Bible verse or prayer point by the picture on each calendar page.
Punch two holes at the top of each page, at least 1 inch from the sides and ¾ inch from the top. Put paper fasteners, twine, yarn, or shoestrings through the holes to hold the calendar pages together.
Suggestion: Make a back cover for the calendar out of cardboard or card stock; attach a magnetic strip to the back to put the calendar on your refrigerator.
