Jam Jar Peace Prayer Lantern

If you're looking for a creative way to help children pray for the current situations in our world, then this simple Peace Prayer Lantern may be helpful. 

To make a Peace Prayer Lantern you'll need a clean jam jar, PVA glue & squares of coloured tissue paper. 

Brush the PVA glue onto the jam jar & add your tissue paper squares to create a colourful design. 

If you wish, you could cut out the letters to create the word PEACE, & stick them onto your jar or you could leave your prayer lantern as it is.

You might like to share this simple prayer together as you light your lantern;

God of hope, 

We pray for our world, especially where there is suffering.

May those who feel scared, know your deep peace.

May those who feel alone, know your never-ending love.

May those who lead countries, know your wisdom.


This little lantern is ideal to light together at mealtimes, & reminds all ages that the light shines in the darkness. John 1:5
