Interactive Prayer Stations on Pentecost II

 1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. (Acts 2.1-4)

Pentecost provides a lot of wonderful images to center interactive prayer stations around: birthday, fire, breath, and wind – just to name a few. Below are ideas for interactive prayer stations focusing on how the spirit strengthens us through renewal, hope, and guidance. The interactive prayer stations are meant to be intergenerational. There are also stations designed for ages 2-4. (For more specific instructions on layout, purpose, design, and more ideas, you can view previous posts tagged under “Interactive Prayer Stations.”)

Interactive Prayer Station #1: Find God’s Abundant Guidance in Struggle

Materials: Markers, Flat Rocks, Bowl, Water

My personal Pentecost experiences the power & presence of God in a fresh way.

What struggles obstruct your personal Pentecost?

Write or draw a word or symbol on a rock & place it in the water. Let the overflow convey God’s abundant guidance throughout your struggles.

Interactive Prayer Station #2: Experience Renewal within Community

Materials: Candles, Paper, Pens

My personal Pentecost experiences the power & presence of God in a fresh way.

After struggles how have you felt God’s presence in fresh ways within community?

Light a candle, symbolizing your experience of renewal within the church community. Write a prayer of gratitude for that renewal & place it under the candle you lit.

Interactive Prayer Station #3: Bring God’s Presence to Those in Hope

Materials: Paper, Pens, Jar

My personal Pentecost experiences the power & presence of God in a fresh way.

Write the names of three people or groups of people who patiently wait in hope for you to bring God’s presence. Place them in the jar to be preserved until the day that hope is realized.
