Use this fun creative prayer idea to teach about the Bible story of Joseph and his coat of many colours
Joseph is given a cloak of love by his father Jacob. Today we are going to make a cloak of love for God.
What do you need:
- a large cardboard cloak - download here: Coat-of-Joseph---Creative-Prayer-Idea.pdf
- coloured strips of paper
- paper glue
What do you do:
Tell the children that Jacob loves Joseph so much that he gives him a coloured cloak. Just as Jacob loves Joseph so many Christians love the Lord God.
Shall we make a cloak of love for God?
Each child can choose a strip of paper in their favourite colour. Ask them to write or draw something on the paper – something that they are happy about, or something that they want to thank God for.
They can stick their strips of paper onto the cloak as a symbol of their prayer. In this way the group can give God a cloak of love.
