This week, in prayer group, we have been exploring ‘lego prayers’. We weren’t quite sure what to expect as we’ve never done anything like this before, but it turned out to be an incredibly fun and reflective session. Ideas for lego prayers can be found below in case you want to have a go at home…
You will need: One Lego brick per person
Hold your brick
Pray for yourself. Thank God for the things he has given you. Ask Him to bless you and to help you to bless others.
Count the bumps on your brick
For each bump on your brick, pray for a different person- friends or family members. Ask God to bless them this week.
Find someone who has a different colour brick to you
Thank God for making each person special. Thank him for the things that are different but special about other people. Pray that we will learn how to celebrate and understand people who are different to us.
Find someone with the same number of bumps on their brick as you
Thank God for families and friends and all who care for us. Pray that He will help us to be friends to those who are lonely.
Swap your brick with someone
Thank God for the person you swapped with and ask God to bless them this week.
Put all of the bricks together and build a structure or tower with them
Thank God for the church and the communities we live in. Pray that He will help us to include others and to help people know that they are loved and valued.
