If you're looking for a creative way for children & families to pray for the current situation in the Ukraine, then this simple 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. You could use any colours, or maybe just yellow & blue to represent the colours of the Ukrainian flag.
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, as we did, & 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 the people of Ukraine.
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 at mealtimes, & reminds all ages that the light shines in the darkness, no matter how bad situations may be.
