Bubbles blessing

bubblesThis is a blessing prayer you can do with people, including very young children. As you get out the bubbles, say that they represent the blessings of God. You might like to talk about some http://onhealthy.net/product-category/muscle-relaxant/ blessings before you start or call them out as you blow.

I think of blessings as all the good things God wants to pour out on us, and so as I blow, I ask God what particularly does He want to bless this person with, and the word that comes into my head I speak over them in a simple blessing prayer:

God bless you with ….

health

safety

family

friends

good sleep

wisdom

joy

peace

rest

knowing God is near

forgiveness

It’s great to take it in turns to be the bless-er and the bless-ee! I use this activity at GodVenture Family Activity Workshops, and it’s so wonderful to see parents blessing their children and children blessing their parents.

Top tip #1: I love the party bubbles you can get from Tesco and other supermarkets. The mix seems to always give good bubbles, and they’re small so not so much to spill 😉 

Top tip #2: I found with big bottle of bubbles, if I tape the bottle to a chair or table, everyone can dip into it and it doesn’t spill on the floor, so lots more fun and blessing. Less wiping up 🙂

Alternatively you could say a prayer of blessing or play a song about God’s blessing as you blow the bubbles.
