Flame: Boxes Prayer Game

Children love this game and may well be familiar with it, but here’s a twist that adds prayer to the mix.

You will need: A piece of paper, pens or pencils (each player should have a different color)

Draw some dots in lines and columns on the paper (see below). I used 10 rows of 7 dots.


Each player takes it in turns to draw a line between two of the dots. Eventually, you will be able to close up boxes. Whoever draws the line that closes the box write write or draw inside the box…

• Someone’s name ask God to bless them and help them
• Something that you want to thank God for
• Something you would like to ask God for

Take time to say the prayer out loud or in your head, then carry on!


The winner is the player who has filled the most boxes by the end of the game.
