Beth Barnett of the Baptist Union, Victoria in Australia has created a pictorial prayer sheet (click the download link on the right). Each paddock has suggestions for prayer.

Ideas for using Prayer Paddocks

  • Print a copy for each child to take home. Encourage them to pray one 'paddock' each day.
  • Project the Prayer Paddocks onto a blank wall. Give the children post-it notes so that they can write prayers or thoughts which can be stuck in the appropriate 'paddock'. Use these in a time of prayer together.
  • Enlarge each of the paddocks and use one each week as a focus for prayer in your group.
