As we have our Day of Prayer, this is a great chance to involve your kids.
For this activity, all you need is:
- Colouring pencils
- Felt tips
To begin with, draw lines on your paper to make a rainbow shape, with 7 bands. Then as you think and pray, write fill in each band using the following guide.
# Red: Stop
Stop pause ask someone to open in prayer. (You may want to play worship music in the background during this activity).
What are you thankful for?
# Orange: People you know
Write the names of the people you want to pray for.
You could pray for your friends, your neighbours, or people in your family
# Yellow: Leaders
Take time to pray for the leaders in the country who are making difficult decisions.
Why not also pray for your church leaders?
# Green: Read
Read the story of Noah found in Genesis 9 if you have a kids Bible or story version feel free to use that as well.
# Blue: NHS
Our focus this week is our NHS.
Pray for the doctors, nurses and everyone who is working in our hospitals and those who are caring for people outside of the hospital.
# Purple: Me
What do I need prayer for? Am I finding anything difficult?
# Pink: Trust God
Say Yes to God!
Say a prayer giving all your worries and prayers to God. Let go trusting God with each of them.
Now, send a photo of your finished rainbow to the GCC Family WhatsApp group.
