Prayer - NT: Philippians - Crowns of humility
A creative prayer idea on humility that you can use in your programme on the book of Philippians
In his letter to the Philippians, Paul highlights Jesus's example of humility. Today, we'll be creating our own "Crowns of Humility" to help us remember Jesus's selflessness and the importance of humility in our daily lives. As we craft and don these crowns, we'll pray for God to give us a heart of humility like Jesus.
This activity is part of a complete Sunday school lesson on the book of Philippians: Living like Christ
What you need:
Paper crowns (Craft materials for creating paper crowns would include construction paper, glue, scissors, and any desired decorative materials like stickers, sequins, or markers)
Craft the Crowns: Begin the activity by having each child make their own paper crown. Encourage creativity and individuality as they decorate their crowns. These are not symbols of earthly royalty, but reminders of the humility of Jesus.
Pray for Humility: Once the crowns are complete, ask each child to put on their "Crown of Humility". Lead the children in a prayer, asking God to give each of them a heart of humility like Jesus. Allow a moment of silence for each child to personally reflect and make their own promise to wear their "crown of humility" in their daily lives.
Crafting and wearing these "Crowns of Humility" serve as a visual and tangible reminder of Jesus's humility and our commitment to emulate this quality. Let us strive to carry this humility in our hearts, just as we don our crowns, each and every day. Through this activity, we remember Paul's words and Jesus' example, understanding that true greatness in God's eyes comes from being humble, just as Jesus was.
