Luther’s Morning Prayer Poster

Lent family friendly Lutheran

I had decided to start at the beginning of our day.  It had been in the back of my mind to create a simple poster for the kids to put by their beds of Luther’s morning Prayer and Evening prayer.  Even to put it in bathroom rooms.  If you have been to my house, we have scripture all over.  The bible tells us to

“Take these words of mine to heart and keep them in mind.  Write them down, tie them around your wrist, and wear them as headbands as a reminder.  Teach them to your children, and talk about them when you’re at home or away, when you lie down or get up.  Write them on the door frames of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 11:18-20 (GWT)

Luther wanted to get into the hands of the father’s to guide their children in faith.  He believed that parents where the first people in charge of their children’s faith, since they where with their children most of the time.  That was why he wrote the small catechism to place it in the hands of parents to teach their children at home.

So today, my kids helped me make a simple poster to put by their beds.  Robby will help the two younger ones learn the prayer.

I love this prayer because after you pray it Luther suggest that everyone goes to work happy and singing, or reciting God’s word.

You can use mine, Luther’s Morning Prayer Poster, or you all can make up your own.  My kids chose the fonts to make it fun.  It is their creation.  The yellow circle was for the sun.  They wanted Martin Luther’s Signature at the bottom.  Now their mornings will begin with this prayer.
