This year for Holy Week, we are providing daily Scriptures, a photo scavenger hunt, and simple activity for you to read with your family to help you connect with God and each other. You can read all about it here.
Today’s Scavenger Hunt item is plants or flowers. Take a walk around the block or a walk around the living room and be on the lookout for plants or flowers. Can you find a garden? A patch of flowers? Oooh- maybe bluebonnets? Maybe a picture in your house with flowers in it? An outfit hanging in the closet with flowers on it? Once you find them take a picture and post them to the Jesus Prays thread on our Facebook page or email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post for you! If you create a prayer space as referenced below, we’d LOVE to see that too!!
- Pick a space. It could be a small closet that is not being used, a corner of a room, or even your coffee table! Make it cozy by adding a chair to sit in or floor pillows to sit on.
- Add prayer items to your space. This might include a small lamp if there is no light, and a battery operated candle. (We have been teaching the kids to use these in their prayer practice!) You may also want to include a cross, a Bible, pictures of your loved ones that you’d like to pray for, or a bulletin board to put prayer requests on.
- If you don’t have a space in your home that will work for this purpose, consider putting together a prayer box that family members can pull out and use during their prayer time!
- This space can be very simple- don’t overthink! If you’d like some inspiration you can view our Pinterest board HERE.
