Lent - Praying a special prayer for Lent

4-7 year olds, All-ageAll-Age service
The following is an action prayer idea for Lent which could be a regular short feature for each session of the Sundays in Lent.

Pass Round Prayer

4-7 year olds, 8-11 year olds
A very easy way of encouraging a group to pray

Pentecost Prayers

All-ageAll-Age service
A short prayer and reflection time based on hands

Prayer pots

4-7 year olds, 8-11 year olds
A fun way to encourage children to pray for other people - there's a mild surprise element that adds a little fillip to praying.

Prayer stations

All-age
It is important in all-age worship that every part of what goes on is accessible and meaningful to everyone there. This idea contains suggestions for how to make prayer time together more interactive.

Prayer using the image of armour

4-7 year olds, 8-11 year olds
An introduction to praying, using objects around a room. Link this to how Paul used what he could see of the Roman armour worn by his guards as a way of praying for the things he and his friends needed to make them strong for God - see Ephesians 6:14-18.
