This is a really easy and effective way to pray for God's care and protection using an item that gives us protection!
You will need: A clear plastic umbrella (I got mine from the pound shop!), dry wipe marker pens.
Put the umbrella up and sit it down on the floor so that it is easy for the children to access. Talk about how we use umbrellas to protect ourselves from the rain and share stories of when you have asked God to protect you. I do it all the time when I'm driving! On the umbrella, simply write the names or draw pictures of people you would like to ask God to care for and protect.
When you have finished with the prayer station, the names will rub off really easily so you will be able to use the umbrella for other things...
