Flame: Playdough World Map Prayers


This is a very hands-on and tactile way of praying!

Ask children to choose a country to pray for and give them some playdough. Put the playdough over the country on the map and mold it to fit the outline of the country, praying that God will bless the land and the people and that His kingdom will come there. In the picture, I’ve used a giant wall map that I didn’t have to use again afterwards as the playdough can leave a sticky residue. Alternatively, you can laminate some smaller maps—maybe of different continents—and these will be able to be re-used.

Children might want to stick some sequins or plastic jewels into the playdough as a symbol of the blessing they are asking God to bring.

Have fun!
