We're going on a prayer hunt...!

I remember reading to my son when he was little "We're going on a bear hunt" and I'm sure I enjoyed it as much if not more than him! So, having remembered that enjoyment I decided to rewrite it for our Children's message on Sunday... with a bit of journeying of course and finding some 'gifts' along the way.
With all due thanks and credit to author Michael Rosen.

We’re going on a prayer hunt
We’re going to say a big one
God is listening
What a beautiful gift!

Oh Wow! Love! (find heart)
Perfect love for me.
I can’t ignore it
By skipping over it
Ok
God, help me feel it.
(Thankyou thankyou)
(Thankyou thankyou)

We’re going on a prayer hunt
We’re going to say a big one
God is listening
What a beautiful gift!

Oh Wow! Words! (find Bible)
A Bible full for me.
I can’t ignore it.
By skipping over it.
Ok.
God help me read it.
(Listen listen)
(Listen listen)

We’re going on a prayer hunt
We’re going to say a big one
God is listening
What a beautiful gift!

Oh Wow! Church (find candle - ring of people)
A family for me!
I can’t ignore it
By skipping over it
Ok
God help me be part of it
(Brothers sisters)

We’re going on a prayer hunt
We’re going to say a big one
God is listening
What a beautiful gift!

Oh Wow! Jesus (find a cross)
Forgiveness for me!
I can’t ignore it
By skipping over it
Ok
God help me receive it
(Sorry sorry)
(new me new me)

We went on a prayer hunt
We prayed some big ones
God was listening
What beautiful gifts!
AMEN!
