Here’s a Prayer Can Be a Ball script excerpt:
(Children are gathered around a large bin where they will leave their balls after each prayer is prayed.  Each child has a ball that bounces for this portion of the prayers.)
Leader:  Provider God, thank You for the many gifts You send our way that are an encouragement to us, and help us to bounce back when life has been hard.
Good medicine,
(children bounce balls)
words of support,
(children bounce balls)
places of shelter,
(children bounce balls)
a word of forgiveness. (children bounce balls and then hold them.)
For the ways that You have provided what we need, we are grateful. 
We lift up our prayer,
(children hold their balls overhead)
and we leave them with You, O God, (children drop balls into large bin; then bow heads)
for we know that Your gifts are good.
(full prayer and song are approximately 5 minutes long)
