A fun prayer activity today – great with younger children.
First gather together around the parachute with everyone hold of it. Practise billowing it up and down and then begin the prayers. As the parachute goes up and down shout something like ‘Thank you Jesus that you love everyone with blonde hair’ or ‘Jesus loves everyone who is 3′ and encourage the children to run under the parachute if it applies to them. Make sure all children have a go running under and knowing Jesus loves them.
If there are children under there at all the wrong times that doesn’t really matter – as the last prayer shout should be ‘Jesus loves everyone!’
