30 Mr. Potato Head Prayers for Your Kids This Summer
The next installment of Toy Story hits movie theaters this summer. One of the funniest characters in the movie is Mr. Potato Head. I’ve always liked him. His wife, Mrs. Potato Head, also plays a “starring role.”
It sounds silly, but Mr. Potato Head’s various parts can give us a simple strategy for immersing our children in prayer.
Listed below are 30 unique prayer ideas with Scripture to help you pray specifically and purposefully for your children this summer:
