Pro-Life Prints: Lessons 2 (I Am Unique), 3 (Helping Others), 4 (Praying for Others)

This post contains affiliate links.

We continued with our Pro-Life Prints activity booklet from Culture of Life Studies Program.  Yesterday my two youngest daughters completed Lesson 1: Preborn Babies.  Today we were really ambitious and finished Lessons 2, 3, and 4 mostly because of our family's busy Friday and weekend schedule.
Also, I wanted to have my posts published at the same time as the 44th annual March for Life on Friday, January 27, 2017 in Washington, DC. I won't be attending the March for Life this year, unfortunately, but I was blessed to attend in 2011, 2012 and 2015.  The marches that I have attended are also linked at the end of this post.

This afternoon my 2 youngest daughters and I got back to work again on their Pro-Life Prints.  Besides destroying my favorite laminator while laminating some of their prints that were still wet when I was in a hurry, it was a blessed day! (Uggghhh, I'm going to have to replace my laminator. :(  I was thinking about getting this one.)

Lesson 2: I Am Unique: "I praise you, because I am wonderfully made: wonderful are your works! My very self you know." -Psalm 139:14 (Psalm 139 is my favorite Psalm!)

In Lesson 2 we talked about how incredibly special each of us are and how there is no one else like you. How each of us have our own handprints and fingerprints, even identical twins have their own uniqueness!  So in this lesson my daughters painted a set of handprints, poppy flowers using their thumbs and bird prints because we discussed that if God takes care of the birds needs, surely he will never forsake us and He will take care of us.

Lesson 3: Helping Others: "Yet Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay and You our Potter: we are all the work of Your hand." -Isaiah 64:7

We talked about ways we can help our family and friends and they made a hand print of an elephant because in the book Horton Hears a Who, Horton understands that "A person's a person no matter how small."  One way to help others is to stand up for those who are smaller than us just as Horton guarded the precious flower that had the Whos in Who-ville living in the tiny speck on the flower.

In Lesson 3, my girls used cut celery to paint roses because roses are beautiful and delicate just like preborn babies!

Lesson 4: Praying for Others: "Yet Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay and You our Potter: we are all the work of Your hand."  -Isaiah 64:7 

Lesson 4 was a reminder that the world is a big place and each person on earth is the work of God's hand.  God loves us immeasurably and the hand prints were reminders of how we are to pray for everyone because all of us need prayers.

Here my daughters are painting their hand with different colors because we learned the five finger prayer as a way to remember who to pray for.

The thumb is closest to us on our bodies so we can pray for those closest to us: our family.

Then the index finger we can pray for teachers and those who instruct us.

The middle finger is the tallest and we can pray for those in authority which includes the president/vice-president, community leaders and even our Pope, Bishops and priests and religious.

The ring finger is the weakest finger so we can remember to pray for the weakest and most delicate in our society (preborn babies, elderly, those who are sick and disabled).

The pinkie finger reminds us to pray for ourselves last since we need prayers too!

Here are all the pages from Lessons 2, 3, and 4 to complete the Pro-Life Prints book.

After I get a new laminator and laminate the pages, I'll bind them together and each of my daughters will have a great keepsake book as a reminder to protect and pray for the culture of life.
Like I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I wanted to do this Pro-Life Prints book this week as a way to remember the annual March for Life that is today, Friday, January 27, 2017.  Since I won't be attending the March physically I will be there in spirit and prayers.

Here are the posts I wrote of the 3 March for Life marches I was able to attend so far...

I started a Pinterest Pro-Life board called "L.I.F.E. = Life Is For Everyone" awhile ago, where I have been collecting pro-life posts.  If you are interested in following the board go HERE and click on articles that interest you! 

 Have a blessed weekend!
