The purpose of this contemplative prayer stations is to give participants an opportunity to see what transformations can take place when the “scales” are taken away. *Used with permission from www.crosspointings.org.
You will need: “Scratch Paper” (Purchase at any craft or art store), wooden dowels (or something to scratch with), a print-out of Acts 9:1-18 and the directions (below).
Set out several sheets of scratch paper on the table and set out the wooden dowels of various weights near the sheets. Hang Acts 9:1-18 and the directions where they can be easily read or make copies to just lie around the table. Make sure there is a place where people can put their images when they are done. For example: hanging them up on clothes lines with clothes pins, pinning them up on a pin board or tapping them on a wall. Be creative!
Prayer Station Instructions:
Take time to quiet yourself and ask God into this time and into your thoughts.
Read Acts 9:1-18 What images of transformation and redemption are brought to mind in the story.
How would the story be told if it were you? What would fall from your eyes? Think about an image of transformation or redemption that has taken place or that you want to take place in your own life.
Take a piece of “scratch” paper and a wooden dowel and etch that image onto the sheet. When you are done hang it up with a clothes pin.
