Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness - Scrabble prayers

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
(Matthew 5 v 6)

In the prayer activity we'll be looking at our response to the righteousness given to us. In in a world where it's not fashionable to have right attitudes - what right attitudes are you most passionate about improving/having?
The campers will be putting the words they choose onto some card - scrabble style.

END OF SUMMER UPDATE: How did it go?

This prayer activity went better than I could have hoped! Even those with poor reading skills could join in by saying words and getting others to spell them with the scrabble blocks. We had great words, and some unique ways of using letters so they could say what they wanted (An upside-down ‘u’ used when the ‘n’ blocks ran out etc)

I actually had to call time on this activity because the children in both groups became so engrossed in what they were doing!

Here’s a couple of examples for you:

(I bought the scrabble sets from ebay - buy 6 sets and get one free. You may want to get some extra ‘n’ squares for each set!)
