This past sunday for our celebration service for the 30 Days of Prayer for Mattoon we setup several prayer stations.
Touch of Love
Place a heart sticker on a special area of a map of Mattoon, and then take a few minutes to pray for that area. Examples could be your neighborhood, a school, or a work place.
Cut out certain headlines, pictures or articles out of a newspaper and glue them to the poster board. Then take a few minutes and pray for that issue or person.
Phone Book Prayers
Flip thru the phone book and randomly pray for people.
Pray for a friend in Mattoon that needs reconciliation with Jesus, and write their name down on a strip of paper. Then connect the strip of paper with a glue stick to the paper chain.
Pick up a sugar cube and think about the sins that you need to confess to God. Pray silently, confessing your sins to God. After a few minutes, throw the sugar cube into the bowl, then stir the bowl with a wooden spoon while the cube dissolves. Thank God for taking away your sins.
Wall of Prayer
Write your prayers on a wall. Let these be prayers that others can join with you on. Take a moment and pray for someone else’s prayer.
Prayer for Your Life
Take a piece of clay and press your thumb into it making a print. Thank God that he has a plan for your life and that you have been created for a purpose. Spend a few moments asking God to guide you in your life.
