Stuff You Can Use: Clothed with Christ Prayer Station

I'm a big believer in the power of experiential learning. To this end, instead of giving a talk about prayer, I'd much rather create a series of prayer stations designed to give students the opportunity to pray in a variety of ways.

Over the next several weeks, I'll be posting some of my favorite prayer stations that I've written. Prayer stations can be used collectively during a prayer night or individually as part of a larger lesson. For example: This particular prayer station was used as part of a prayer experience during a junior high & high school winter retreat focused on baptism.

Prayer Station: Clothed with Christ 

Themes: Baptism, self-image 

Scripture Link: Galatians 3:26-27 

Supplies: T-shirt sticky notes (They're sticky notes shaped like t-shirts. I found mine at the Dollar Store.) Pens

Directions:

Galatians 3:26-27 says, “In Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.”

What do you think it means to be clothed in Christ?

As you contemplate this, take a t-shirt sticky note and a pen.

Write “Christ” as many times as you can on the sticky note, as a reminder that you are clothed in Christ.

How might remembering that you are clothed in Christ influence the way you live?

How might remembering that you are clothed in Christ impact your self-image?

As you think about your answers to these questions, quietly breathe in and out. As you breathe out, simply utter the word “Christ” as your prayer.

Take your t-shirt with you as a reminder that you are clothed in Christ.
