I believe I got this idea from Focus on the Family many years ago as we have been doing this ever since and consider it a family tradition. But just before you throw those cards away, hold onto them, place them in a container (because of the move, I can't find the cute container I usually put them in - a red sleigh) and place the container in a prominent place where you and your family gather together to pray. We have always done it during our family dinner. All you do is pull a card and pray for that person or family. They can also be a topic of conversation, you can reminisce about the times you spent with this particular person/family. You can also go as far as to send a note to this person/family to let them know that they were thought of and prayed for.
So, don't throw that card out just yet!! You've got some praying to do :)
Happy New Year!
