Our church recently sponsored a Prayer Breakfast for children in
grades 1 through 6. Here’s a fun way we found to get kids
Write a numbered list of 10 prayer needs or praise items such as
“pray for your family members,” “thank God for three friends,” and
“pray for two missionaries.” (Have missionaries’ photos and names
available). Continue your list up to #10.
After your list is written, prepare three games: Hopscotch,
Pogs, and Jump Rope. Then form three groups-one for each game.
After children each take their turn at a game, have them pray aloud
according to the number associated with their turn. For example, if
a child’s stone lands on #2 in Hopscotch, that child would pray for
item #2 on the list. If a child jumps rope six times, that child
would pray for item #6 on the list. Keep prayers short and simple
because others are waiting for a turn.
Please keep in mind that phone numbers, addresses, and
prices are subject to change.
