First Kids – Penny Prayers
Hi everybody. Do you remember some time ago in church we thought about prayers based on a one pence coin? I thought we could do that again focusing on the virus and lockdown. Here’s my idea:
FIRSTLY, SEE IF YOU CAN FIND A ONE PENCE COIN
HOLD THE COIN IN YOUR HAND AS YOU PRAY
WRITE OR SAY YOUR OWN PRAYER USING THE COIN TO HELP:
- The penny is round: this helps us to remember to pray for boys, girls, and grownups all over the world at this difficult time.
- The penny has ‘one’ written on it: this reminds us that God loves everyONE.
- The penny has the Queen’s head on it: reminding us to pray for our Queen and the leaders of countries. Remember to pray for parents and teachers too.
- It is a small amount of money: reminding us to pray for people who are poor – some might struggle more than ever during this virus and lockdown.
- It has a date on it: reminding us to pray for today and asking God to be with us whatever the day brings.
- Perhaps you can think of other ways the penny helps us in our prayers.
WHY NOT USE THE PENNY TO HELP YOU PRAY EVERY DAY THIS WEEK?
I hope you all enjoyed seeing the Tool Shed Gang last week – it’s planned they’ll be back soon! I will let you know when. Have a good week!
