Praying with children – 1

A great day at HotPot in Preston on Saturday, and during my session I promised to post 1 prayer a day for 14 days. So here is number 1!

A variety of prayers with sweets!

Fill a bowl with wrapped sweets of different colours. Starbursts are quick and easy to eat. Boiled sweets are good if you want people to spend longer in prayer and reflection.

If this is a station place a sign next to the bowl with the words below on. If this is a prayer for everyone together then read the words below. Remember to have a rubbish bin handy for the wrappers.

Take a sweet from the bowl.

What colour is it?

If it’s …..

purple talk to God about your friends

orange talk to God about your family

green talk to God about someone you know is sad

red talk to God about someone you know is very happy.

Eat your sweet as you talk to God.

Back tomorrow with idea 2.
