Interactive Lenten Prayers


These five interactive Lenten prayers may be set up as an installation during Lent or used in worship during a special time of prayer or potentially during your children’s sermon. (Often, doing something with children can free adults to interact in meaningful ways.)


Interactive Lenten Prayers:

  • Sackcloth Prayer Wreath
  • Prayer Ribbons
  • Chalkboard confessions
  • The Sign of the Cross
  • Prayer Loom

These may be used in worship or during another time of prayer. They may also be set up in a special prayer room for use throughout the season of Lent as a “Prayer Installation.”

In order to generate more interest and participation, I highly recommend giving all the instructions for prayer during worship or other large group gathering, and passing out some of the materials to every person. For example, with the sackcloth prayer wreath, you may give every person a small tag on which to write a prayer, and then leave the other materials at the station.

You may provide time during worship to participate in the interactive prayer stations – perhaps even a whole service! This is a great way to structure an Ash Wednesday service –just make sure to include the imposition of ashes as a prayer station.

The prayer stations can also be set up in a children’s worship area in the sanctuary for use by families during worship.
