To make a prayer box or book or you will need is a box such as a shoe box or a keep sake box. If you are making a prayer book then you will need an exercise book or journal type book. Once you have these then find some items which you can use to decorate your box / book.

These items could be coloured pens, pretty paper, angelic or pretty wrapping paper, tiny white feathers, scissors, glue or double sided tape, glitter, paints, angelic pictures and any other odds and ends that you would like to use to decorate your book or box. Make your prayer box / book personal to you and decorate it in a way that will inspire you.

Once you have found all the items that you will need then decorate your book / box. You could stick angelic pictures on it, add glitter, feathers or even cover the book or box with angelic or inspiring wrapping paper.

Once your book / box are complete then write down all of your favourite angelic poetry, quotes and prayers. You can add to your prayer box / book your favourite prayers, poems and quotes that others have written. Most important of all add all of your own prayers to your prayer book / box. You can write your prayers, poetry and quotes down on special paper and maybe use colourful pens. You could try making your own prayer cards to add to the prayer book or box. You could also add angelic pictures and stickers to your box / or on the pages in your book – decorate each page.

Try adding all your prayers to your box / book each day for as long as you can. If you have any concerns, worries, desires, wishes, healing messages, or even grateful and thankful messages to send to God and the Angels, then you can write these down and add them to your prayer box / book. This is your special prayer box / book so make it as personal and as special to you as you can. You could even create a prayer book or box as a special gift for your loved ones.
