ABC Prayers of Thanksgiving

Have women take turns completing the sentence “Thank you, God, for…” The first woman should mention something that starts with A, the second woman something that starts with B, and so on through the alphabet.

One-Word Prayers

Have women form a circle. Call out a topic, such as “praise” or “request.” Women take turns saying one word that represents their prayers.

Bubble Prayers

Take your group outside. Give one jar of bubble solution to every four or five women. Pause for several minutes of silent prayer. Ask the women to quietly take turns blowing bubbles and watching them float up. Encourage women to imagine their prayers floating up to heaven. Thank God for hearing prayers.
