At Sanctuary Covenant Church (Minneapolis, Minnesota), we are trying to incorporate ways for families and all ages to interact, pray, worship, and build community together. This idea came out of a desire to have a time for our children to be involved in our prayer ministry on Wednesday nights. It started as a central time to pray for our kids and the kids and schools in our city. This idea morphed and changed into a desire to bring our community together across ages to pray together in creative ways. We want to build a culture of prayer at our church, a space where all can pray together, and learn from the various styles of prayer.
We plan to offer this intergenerational opportunity for creative prayer three times a year during the school year. The event is set up as prayer stations for participants of all ages. Each station engages a different form of prayer.
