Balloon Prayers

Resources Needed:

  • Small pieces of paper
  • Pens
  • Balloons

Ask the congregation to think of something that they would like to pray about and to write it down on their piece of paper. It is important to say that someone else will read their prayer. Ask them to roll up the piece of paper into a tube that can be pushed into the balloon. When the paper is inserted they can blow up the balloon.

Once everyone is ready, let go of the balloons so that they whizz around the room as the air comes out. Everyone then picks up the nearest deflated balloon and pulls out the prayer and prays it.
