This is a really easy way to pray and is very tactile! It would work well when praying for any situation, but would be especially good when exploring the idea of being salt and light in the world.
You will need: a tray with sides (e.g. a roasting tin), table salt, lolly sticks
Pour the salt into the tray until the bottom is completely covered. Smooth over to make the surface flat.
Use a lolly stick or a finger to write an initial or to draw somebody or something you would like to ask God to bless. As you say 'amen,' out loud or in your head, smooth the salt over again.
