I first introduced you to PrayerBowls in our FAB Mother’s Day Giveaway last month. Today, I’m highlighting PrayerBowls again, all by herself because, well she deserves it. PrayerBowls is the absolute perfect gift for a special person in your life – whether it’s an amazing teacher, a carpool buddy who saved your life all school year long, a teen going off to college, a person who lost a loved one, or a new bride-to-be. The list is endless. Smarties, here is the wonderful story of PrayerBowls, I know you’re going to fall head over heels, just like I did.
PrayerBowls was started by Karen Berry, who happens to be the beautiful wife of an old college friend of mine. I’m going to let Karen tell you her story, it’s absolutely amazing, just like her PrayerBowls:
I am a believer in the power of prayer. A few years ago I was extremely sick. Family, friends, and even strangers lifted me up to God in prayer as I went through many surgeries and treatments.
One day, I was again amazed by Christ showing His love through others: a woman named Angie whom I had never met before told me that she had prayed daily for me for a year. She went on to share that she kept a prayer bowl, and each day, she’d ask the Lord’s blessing on the people who were in need at that time. I loved the idea so much that I quickly decided to create a distinctive prayer bowl for myself and a few others, and with that, PrayerBowls were born.
So many times we hear of a prayer request at church, Bible study, or even through email, and we pray for that person at that time. Often, we quickly forget to offer a prayer again while we shuffle back into our daily routine, but God tells us to pray continuously. So, simply place your prayer bowl where you sit daily, and jot down the names of those whom you’re praying for on a slip of paper. Then, each day, alone or with your family, lift up those friends in need to the Lord.
May God bless you, Karen ~
PrayerBowls are brand new to Charlotte and Smarty Charlotte is the first to hear about them! My PrayerBowls came and they have brought prayer and joy to our dinner table. We have it at the center and every night we go through our family and friends who need our prayers. Thank you, Berry family for that lovely gift! They come in two equally gorgeous designs:
The Angie Set…
and the Celeste Set…
They come packaged in the sweetest Tiffany blue box with their beautiful story inscribed on the inside…
PrayerBowls also has a big heart. The first card in every prayer card bundle has a prayer for the children that go through Mary Lee’s House, a facility close to the Berry’s heart that is dedicated to aid and protect victims of child abuse and neglect.
You won’t find PrayerBowls locally in Charlotte. Yet. I know of a few stores that carry them and they fly off the shelves just as soon as they come in. So y’all may want to stock up! Tell them CSP sent ya!
