Bright Prayer Ideas for families at home during the holiday
– Pebbles prayers on the beach
Use pebbles to represent the people you are praying for, before throwing them into the sea.
– Writing in the Sand
Write or draw pictures in the sand for the people you want to know about Jesus’ love.
– Ripple Prayers
Watching ripples on a lake can remind us of how God’s kingdom grows and spreads out, a bit like the parable of the yeast.
“What shall I compare the kingdom of God to? It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough.”
– Mountain Top Prayers
Carrying a stone up a mountain can help us remember the people that God has put on our hearts for prayer.
– Prayer Walk
Pray as you walk around your urban setting, park or countryside for God’ kingdom to grow and be in these places.
“Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”
– Puddle Prayers
Splashing in puddles is so much fun and you can pray at the same time!
– Planting Seeds
Watching seeds grow over a period of time can help us remember how God’s Kingdom grows.
Then Jesus asked, “What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air perched in it’s branches.”
– Campfire Prayers
Campfires or bonfires can create special family moments to pray.
As a family, gather sticks and build your fire. Get an adult to light the fire. Supervising younger children at all times, spend some time watching the flames and feeling the warmth of the fire. Talk about God’s love and how it can be like a warm feeling inside. There might be things going on in our lives that stop that warm glowing feeling, so this is a great opportunity to say sorry to God. Sorry prayers can be written on bits of paper and then thrown into the fire to be burnt, reminding us that God forgives us when we do wrong things.
Take some marshmallows and toast them on sticks. Notice the sweet taste and thank God for the good things in your lives. Finally, think of another family or person that you want to share God’s love with and pray for them, that they would know the warm glow of God’s love in their lives too.
