On a typical Sunday morning in children’s ministries around the globe, you might find kids folding paper handouts into various creative shapes. From paper airplanes to origami animals, kids LOVE folding paper! But when asked, “Who wants to pray?” most kids sit silent. So that’s why this foldable prayer activity was designed to make it fun and easy to share and pray! You can do this activity as a group or have kids form small groups or pairs. It’s up to you! Simply download the “Prayer Popper” activity sheet, print as many copies as you need, fold, and enjoy this one-of-a-kind prayer experience. After you’ve prepared your prayer poppers, explain prayer using this description from the book, Discover How to Pray by Jeff White. Say: God loves you so much and wants you to be his friend. And friends talk to each other. That’s what prayer is—talking to God, your friend. Praying isn’t hard. All you have to do is talk to God. You already know how to talk with your friends, parents, teachers, brothers, sisters, and the other people in your life. Easy right? Well prayer is talking, too. You’re simply talking to God instead of people. Read Psalm 17:6 together. Then use your prayer poppers to talk with God together! For another fun prayer activity, check out this free download.
