To make children aware of the importance of talking to God through their prayers
The children will talk to God about their needs and things for which they are thankful.
Remind the children during every session to write prayer intentions and place them in the bowl. The sheets with prayers on them can be a variety of colors. If possible, photocopy the words God, "please help?" onto the sheets.
Keep the bowl visible throughout Lent; no names should be on the papers.
