An exciting way to do prayer requests is to lay a large piece of paper on the floor and have groups of all ages write their prayer requests with crayons. If you have younger children, they can draw pictures of their prayer requests. Then go around the room and have each participant explain what their creation or prayer request is. Then lead the group in prayer for these requests. I recently led this activity with children ages 4-11 and everyone in the room was fully engaged. At the conclusion of the activity we had an anointed prayer session. Using creativity in prayer helps lower the defenses and helps lead participants into breakthrough prayer.
A great way to set this prayer activity up is to use a paper drop cloth that can be purchased at Lowe’s for $10.98. The uses for this paper are endless!
