Today we had lots of fun experiencing different ways to pray and make time for God.
We took part in several different activities, moving around the school to complete them.
With Mrs. Holding we made ‘tasty prayers’. We talked about how each piece of fruit represented a way in which we can live how God would wish us to e.g. being kind, being happy, loving.
In Miss Boughey’s class we made friendship bracelets to represent our friendship with God. We talked about how God loves us and how he will always be our friend.
In Miss Brennan’s class we decorated a stone to add to our school’s prayer cairn. We wrote special words such as ‘joy’ ‘love’ and ‘friendship’ and decorated them with images.
In our own class we decorated prayer posters. We did this in silence and thought about how calming God’s presence is and how it is important to sometimes be silent and still when talking to God.
In Miss Dooner’s class we made prayer flags. On each flag we wrote a prayer for children who are in need. One of our prayers was ‘Dear God, look after children who are hungry. Amen’
Finally, in Mrs Sherry’s class we made a Lego tower full of prayers. We each had a piece of Lego and as we placed it on our tower, we said a prayer that was special to us.
