You never know what you will find here on MixingItUp. Today I have a list to share with 31 ways to pray for your family. I received this list as a bookmarker at church about a decade ago, maybe longer. I made it a goal to use this list as one way to pray for my husband, my children, and myself. The only thing I do differently is to pray the whole list everyday (or as close to everyday that I can), not pray one part each day of the month. See what works for you. It covers a lot of good stuff. Below is the first page of a free pdf download than can be found here.
