How to make a Prayer Jar 💐

Fill a small jar with a potpourri of relaxing herbs. I used lavender, chamomile, rose petals and comfrey.
On strips of paper write down the names of the people you want to pray for, and add them to the jar. If you want, you can also add any small items or verses that remind you of the names too.
Draw a cross on the lid and leave it unsealed so you can add more names as needed.

Ideas for how to use:

  • Open the jar to smell the herbs when you pray to help you stay calm and focus
  • Shake the jar and pray specifically for the name that appears
  • Hold the jar in your hand while praying for the names in it
  • Use as a reminder to pray for someone when you see the jar


I hope my writings and research can bring a bit of happiness and magic to your day! 🍀
