War Room Prayer Wall- DIY Prayer Tree

If you haven’t yet seen the movie War Room you really should! It’s a great illustration of how real prayer can cause big changes! You might be thinking this post is a little out of theme with the rest of my blog but it does have a “crafty ending.”  Oh my, that’s cute I’m going to have to use that phrase again. 🙂

I’m going to be transparent with you for a minute about a few trials my husband and I walked through..
After 6 years of marriage my husband, Michael and I had been through many unique and very unexpected trials. Miscarriage 2 months after being married, multiple job layoffs, move in and out of state with a 5 week old infant, loneliness for me as my husband traveled, which led to overwhelming anxiety and depression, unexpected pregnancy during that time, (she’s a huge blessing now!) and on the list goes..
I will be the first to admit that my faith wavered, like a lot, probably everyday at times. But it’s great that God doesn’t answer our prayers based on works or take away blessings because our faith fails at times. He still stands by us as long as we keep getting up when we fall, run back to Him and ask for help.
Through God’s amazing grace we have made it through each of these trials and come out stronger. I know we will face more in life. But I also know God will be faithful no matter what.
I remember think to myself at one point ‘why do I always get so scared when bad news comes?’ After all God had seen us through countless valleys.
The answer was rather simple, my first reaction was to be afraid instead of trusting God because I so easily forgot all the blessings and help God has given us time and time again.
I needed a reminder, smack in front of my face everyday, good day or bad day.
We had recently watch the movie War Room and I loved the idea of a wall dedicated to prayers, answered prayers and favorite bible verses.
I had to create a special crafty spin on it though. Ahh.. see I promised I had a crafty angle here!
 So the idea of one of those vinyl wall stickers came to mind. I found this wall tree decal for $15 on ebay! It came with the frames too!

 

I used my cutting machine to write our favorite bible verses on some shimmery velum. Then I choose two different leave styles, one to represent the prayers and blessings that had come our way even through difficulty, and one to show our current prayer requests and remind us to pray on all occasions.

 

Hubby and I put it together over a few days. I used heavy duty double sided tape for the leaves. If you have a cutting machine and are handy with vinyl you could always do the leaves that way too.
But for those who don’t have a machine or don’t want vinyl leaves I have a leaf  FREEBIE with 2 styles of leaves like I used. One is compatible with a cutting machine and the other for hand cutting

 

I really loved how it turned out and the tree is large enough to continue to add leaves of blessings and prayers.
More importantly everyday, even when I’m ready to jump ship because my kids are driving me crazy, or bad news comes, I can look up and know that God will get me through anything, even the terrible twos!

 

Here are a few of my favorite verses I used on my tree.
The pain that you've been feeling, can't compare to the joy that's coming. - Romans 8:18 | Emily made this with Spoken.ly:

Amplified Version: "...for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] [Josh. 1:5.]”:
