Lego (or Duplo) Prayers

This prayer activity is suitable for groups of children or even a whole congregation as long as you have enough bricks!  Have an adult or child to lead the prayers for each group, however big...

You will need: One Lego or Duplo brick per person

Hold your brick.
Pray for yourself.  Thank God for the things he has given you.  Ask Him to bless you and to help you to bless others.

Count the bumps on your brick.
For each bump on your brick, pray for a different person- freinds or family members.  Ask God to bless them this week.

Find someone who has a different colour brick to you.
Thank God for making each person special.  Thank him for the thingsthat are different but special about other people.  Pray that we will learn how to celebrate and understand people who are different to us.

Find someone with the same number of bumps on thier brick as you.
Thank God for families and friends and all who care for us.  Pray that He will help us to be freinds to those who are lonely.

Swap your brick with someone.
Thank God for the person you swapped with and ask God to bless them this week.

Put all of the bricks together and build a structure or tower with them.
Thank God for the church and the communities we live in. Pray that He will help us to include others and to help people know that they are loved and valued.


  1. I love this idea of Lego prayers so much I'll be using it this week in our children's ministry! I LOVE all your ideas of how to teach our children how to worship our risen Savior! Thanks!

  2. This is so awesome! Using it at my prayer breakfast.

  3. I used this in a joint younger/older session over the Bank Holiday, when our attendance declines. I was worried the 10-12 age group would find it babyish, but they really responded to it with reverence and attentiveness.

  4. Love it! Great for my group who has a big Lego fan. Thanks.

  5. What a fantastic idea. We are going to use this with our whole congregation this week. I love the symbolism of building a church with prayer!!

  6. I did this today, having found the link on Pinterest. Great with my group of 4 -6 year-olds. Thank you and God bless.
