Newspaper Prayers

Items Needed:

  • Newspapers
  • Large sheet of paper
  • Glue Sticks


We’ve used this format frequently for intercessions.

Bring a pile of that day’s newspapers (carefully vetted). Place one or two papers on each table together with a large sheet of paper and glue.

Allow people time to looks through the papers and pick out stories or headlines that they feel they would like to pray for.

These can then be stuck onto a large sheet of paper and prayers can be written around the newspaper cuttings.

You may like to them allow time to draw everyone together and ask each table to share what they have chosen.

Conclude with a simple prayer offering each of these to God.
