Sweets Prayer


This is a really popular prayer activity:

1 Grab a pack of multi-coloured sweets — Skittles work well!

2 Assign each colour sweet a category, for example:

  • Red: family
  • Purple: friends
  • Green: environment/ animals
  • Yellow: the world
  • Orange: school/work

3 Take it in turns to pick one sweet.  You could do this with your eyes closed or open if you want to choose what to thank God for.

4 Before you eat your sweet, say a one-line prayer thanking God for something in that category.

5 Eat your sweet as the next person takes their turn.

You can also do this with ‘please’ prayers!
