I was sorting out the games in one of our cupboards today and came across about 5 packs of playing cards we obviously had never opened. It started me thinking about how we could use them to pray with...
Here's a prayer activity that would work really well in a family prayer time or as a small group prayer activity.
Take a pack of cards and lay them face down. Take it in turns to take a card off the top of the pile and pray using these guidelines:
For a red number card say a 'thank you' prayer
For a black number card say a 'sorry' or 'please' prayer
For a king card, think of a word to describe God and how great He is.
For a queen card pray for someone who is female.
For a jack card, pray for someone who is male.
