This contemplative prayer station uses whole punches to help people visualize our holey-ness and Gods saving grace. *Used with permission from www.crosspointings.org.
Directions for Leadership:
You will need to cut out paper people, enough for 2 per person. On a table place the half the paper people in one basket with a label marked “me” and the rest in another basket with a label marked “Jesus”. Also place a bunch of hole-punchers with various sins taped to the handles in the middle of the table along with some glue sticks and markers.
Print out the directions and the verses from Roman (below) to put on the table as well.
Prayer Station Directions:
Before beginning, take a moment to quiet yourself and acknowledge God’s presence with you at this moment.
Take a paper cut out from the basket labeled “me” and take time to draw yourself on it.
Look around the table at all the hole-punchers. Notice they are named with specific sins. For every sin the has affected you or that you have visited upon another, punch a hole in your paper self.
Now, take a paper “Jesus” and paste it onto the back of yours and as you do so pray that God will repair the real brokenness in you and fill you with more of himself.
When done, place your paper-self under the cross.
