Prayer activity for Shrove Tuesday

If you're having pancakes today, enjoy them! 

After your pancakes, think or chat about what comes to mind when you think of Easter. Make a note of these – they could be symbols, ideas, people or places.  


Prayer starter: 

Spend a few minutes giving thanks for everything on your list. Ask God to help you understand His love for you and others more this Lent. 

After giving thanks, put your list away somewhere safe, so you can come back to it during the Easter weekend.
