Standing in the Gap

Resources Needed:

·      cardboard made to look like a broken wall made of two sections, using a permanent marker pen


Read out Ezekiel 22:30: I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land. Explain how we can stand in the gap for people and fill it with our prayers. Tell the congregation that intercession literally means ‘go between’, so we are the link between who we are praying for and God. Ask the congregation to come up to the wall and literally stand in the gap in the middle of the two wall sections and pray for people and situations where people we know can’t, or won’t, pray to God for themselves. We can be their link to God.
