a neighborhood prayer-sharing box for children and adults
What Is a Little Free Prayer Library?
Just like Little Free Libraries are places where neighbors can share books that they like,
Little Free Prayer Library is a place to share prayers. It is an invitation to rest, connect and play; A sacred space to tell God about our hopes, fears, dreams and tears, alone but together with our neighborhood community.
Where Can I Find One?
My Little Free Prayer Library is in Denver, Colorado. If you are a Denver-local, please contact me via the form below for the exact address. I can't wait to see you!
If you live outside of Colorado, follow our journey along on Instagram @KutsuCompanions. Perhaps you get inspired to create your own prayer-sharing place in your neighborhood!

Have you enjoyed Little Free Prayer Library and want to give a gift? We are grateful for your support.
We love going on long walks in our neighborhood.
During the pandemic, our neighbors were an incredible gift to us. We had always really enjoyed the Little Free Libraries in our neighborhood, and when the public libraries had to close we were especially thankful for our neighbors' generous book-sharing. (And we still are now!)
I (Kaisa) spend a lot of time online sharing prayer ideas and listening to God with people from all over the world, but I also wanted to be able to share the gift of communal prayer with my neighbors. That's why I decided to create a Little Free Prayer Library ― a neighborhood prayer-sharing box for children and adults, right in front of our home.
