This creative prayer enable focus and calm to encourage prayer, it is also something which families can take away and use in their own time and space.
You will need: pieces of twine or wool to offer to each person/family.
Take a piece of string or cord, and tie five knots in it to represent each of the five people or issues you have committed to pray for. You could carry the knotted string in your pocket, tie it round your wrist or place it somewhere that you’ll see it regularly. Use the knots to remind you to pray for each person or issue, that they would know God’s Hope even in impossible situations.
