Stuff You Can Use: Called 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: Called 

Themes: Vocation, baptism 

Scripture Link: Ephesians 2:10 

Supplies: Pens, Invitations 


In Ephesians 2:10, the apostle Paul writes, “For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life.”

As Christians, each of us is CALLED.

Author Frederick Buechner says, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”

With that in mind, what do you think you're being called to?

What is God inviting you to do today? Tomorrow? At school this week? With your family? With your life?

Imagine God is writing you an invitation to do whatever it is he is calling you to do. What would he say?

Take an invitation and fill it out as though God were sending it to you, inviting you to do what he's calling you to do.

Then leave it on the table as a symbol of your willingness to accept God's invitation to do whatever it is he's calling you to do.
