Most families have some Lego lurking somewhere and it is a fantastic tool for praying with, especially is you are looking for hands on, colourful prayer.
Here are some ideas for praying with Lego…
- Use lego to spell the names of people you are praying for (or the initial letter of their name if it is a long name!) Ask God to bless that person.
2. Say sorry to God for something you have done wrong and ask Him to forgive you. Make a cross with some Lego pieces as a reminder that because of the cross and the resurrection, we have the chance at a new start too.
3. Use Lego figures to pray for people. If you pick up a girl- pray for a female, if it’s a boy, pray for a male, if it’s a figure that has a particular job e.g. a construction worker or an artist, pray for people doing that job. If you pick up a figure with an angry expression, pray for people who are angry and need peace. Let your imagination to think of other ways of using the figures to pray!
4. Make models with Lego of things you’d like to say thank you to God for.
