The Lord's Prayer: Simple and Easy Prayer Stations





 We have been exploring the Lord's prayer as part of the 'Thy Kingdom Come' prayer wave between Ascension day and Pentecost. Here are some prayer stations we did yesterday at our local infant school.  The children loved them!

Our father in heaven, hallowed be your name.


Deocrate the names of God to show how special they are.



Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
Draw pictures of how you think God would like us to live and help people.

Ask him to help us live like that.



Give us today, our daily bread…
  
Make your favourite food out of playdough.

Ask God to help people who don’t have enough food to eat.


Forgive us our sins…

Think about something you want to say sorry for and say sorry to God.

Blow some bubbles. As they float away imagine giving your prayer to God. When they pop remember that God forgives you.


…as we forgive those who sin against us.

Think about someone who has upset you.

Ask God to help you forgive them.

Draw them on a heart and pin it to the line.


Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Take a stone and make something to protect it.

Put the stone by the cross and ask God to keep you safe from doing the wrong thing.



For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever.
God is the most amazing king you could ever imagine.

Decorate one of the crowns for God.
