This prayer activity is suitable for groups of children or even a whole congregation as long as you have enough bricks! Have an adult or child to lead the prayers for each group, however big….
You will need: One LEGO brick per person. I like to use the larger bricks, as they are less likely to wander and more appropriate for a larger age group of children.
Hold your brick.
Pray for yourself. Thank God for the things he has given you. Ask Him to bless you and to help you to bless others.
Count the bumps on your brick.
For each bump on your brick, pray for a different person, perhaps friends or family members. Ask God to bless them this week.
Find someone who has a different color brick to you.
Thank God for making each person special. Thank him for the things that are different but special about other people. Pray that we will learn how to celebrate and understand people who are different than us.
Find someone with the same number of bumps on their brick as you.
Thank God for families and friends and all who care for us. Pray that He will help us to be friends to those who are lonely.
Swap your brick with someone.
Thank God for the person you swapped with and ask God to bless them this week.
Put all of the bricks together and build a structure or tower with them.
Thank God for the church and the communities we live in. Pray that He will help us to include others and to help people know that they are loved and valued.
