Personal Prayer Poster

How can you encourage someone going through extreme circumstances and give them visual hope? When my friend Debbie was diagnosed with terminal cancer I enlisted people to pray for her. One praying friend, Gina, decided to make her prayers visual. She created a poster for Debbie and used it as a tool to pray for her and to encourage her. She included pictures of Debbie, meaningful scriptures, and Debbie’s ‘word for the year’-BELIEVE. When Debbue received it she proudly displayed it on her hospital wall and later at home.

Gina’s prayer poster also touched friends, family and coworkers who came to visit.
