God’s Work / Our Hands Prayer
The God’s Work / Our Hands Prayer let’s your children lead prayers that celebrate those who use their God-given gifts to serve others.
Children will help the prayers come to life as they model a variety of styles of gloves that are worn by people who serve their families and community. Their simple prayers of thanks to God are a perfect addition to any worship service.
Theme: Prayer and lives of service to others.
Characters: Reader and 10+ children to model gloves and the option to expand the parts to include more children or combine the parts for fewer children.
Song: Serve One Another – simple song with motions
Performance time: 5 minutes
Here’s a God’s Work / Our Hands Prayer script excerpt:
(Child #1 enters wearing garden gloves & carrying carrots & stops center stage)
Reader: God of all living things, bless the hands that wear garden gloves. Hands that plant, and weed, and harvest food. Hands that grow habitat for birds and bees and butterflies. Hands that compost and do all they can to care for the earth. God of all living things, bless the hands that wear garden gloves.
(Child #1 stands to left of center stage as Child #2 enters wearing disposable medical gloves and a mask and stands center stage)
God of serving hearts, bless the hands that wear disposable gloves. Hands that work in women’s shelters, care centers, hospitals, group homes and clinics. Hands with hearts that provide a listening ear and a little hope in their service to those that need it most. God of serving hearts, bless the hands that wear disposable gloves.
(Child #2 stands in line next to Child #1 as Child # 3 enters wearing work gloves and carrying a hammer and stands center stage)
(full prayer and song are approximately 5 minutes long)
