Short-term mission trip prayer reminders

Prayer cards used by Southern Nazarene University students to raise prayer and financial support for summer mission trips

Prayer cards are used to remind friends and family to pray for and to financially support someone going on a short-term mission trip. They can be used as bookmarks or to go on a bulletin board or a refrigerator. They are a way of getting others to join your support network. The cards usually include a photo along with brief information about the mission trip and a few specific prayer requests.
