The Arrow that points up.
Think about who God is, and what He is like
.......and tell Him.
Psalm 8:2 (TLB)
You have taught the little children to praise you perfectly. May their example shame and silence your enemies!
When I do this prayer with children, I do 'Shouting Prayers'.
I ask them to think of a word that describes God and say what it is.
It could be a real word: Big, Awesome, Wonderful, Loving.......
It could be a made up word: Humunginormous, Fandabiedozie, Wonderbig......
We then turn those words into a prayer.
I start with "Dear God, we think you are..." Then all the children shout their word out - lots of different words shouted at the same time. We then close with a "Wind Up" Amen (Something quite difficult to explain here..... but it's fun!)
There's loads of songs out there that can back this up too!
